the postfix port on OpenBSD 2.5

hallo ...

first basic info whicht is asked:

Portname and version:

Port:   postfix-19990906-pl05
Path:   /usr/ports/mail/postfix
Info:   fast, secure sendmail replacement
Maint:  dugsong_(_at_)_monkey_(_dot_)_org
Index:  mail
Archs:  any

downloaded first from: 


then from: anoncvs_(_at_)_anoncvs_(_dot_)_ca_(_dot_)_openbsd_(_dot_)_org:/cvs

(both ports gave the same result).

My OpenBSD:

OpenBSD ahoj 2.5 AHOJ#1 i386

kernel file is based on GANDALF 

I didn't install any of my own patches. 


name of the machine is ahoj.priroda.xs4all.nl (or just ahoj). 

The first time I installed postfix, all went very well. No problems at all. There was at the end of
the script a question, if I wanted to replace sendmail ... I said yes and all went well.

This time, there was /usr/local/sbin/postfix enable. I suppose this is supposed to install the postfix
wrapper around /usr/sbin/sendmail. 

I saw the problem in the headers (which you can see here too):

by ahoj.priroda.xs4all.nl (8.9.3/8.9.3) id NAA19970

this was found on zorion (another computer of mine, running FreeBSD and postfix). One can see, it's
still a sendmail header. The header should be:

by ahoj.priroda.xs4all.nl (Postfix, from userid 1000) 

however, when ahoj receives mail one does see the correct postfix info:

Delivered-To: oink_(_at_)_ahoj_(_dot_)_priroda_(_dot_)_xs4all_(_dot_)_nl
Received: from zorion.xs4all.nl (zorion.xs4all.nl [])
        by ahoj.priroda.xs4all.nl (Postfix) with ESMTP id 701382592
        for <oink_(_at_)_ahoj_(_dot_)_priroda_(_dot_)_xs4all_(_dot_)_nl>; Tue, 26 Oct 1999 14:17:00 +0200 (CEST)
Received: by zorion.xs4all.nl (Postfix, from userid 1000)                      

Furthermore, when I reboot ahoj ... it starts up sendmail, not postfix. I need to kill sendmail and do
/usr/local/sbin/postfix start

Well, under the old postfix port all went very smootly. Must one do much more tweeking with the new
postfix port? 

thanks for your time ...
