I use Amazon SES as a mail relay service for my emails as my server host blocks connections out on port 25. SES works great, however occasionally users send large attachments (>10MB). Whilst I could just every time suggest they upload their attachments somewhere and send a URL, this becomes tiresome and sometimes too complicated for my users.
I have noticed that even when Postfix is not running on my machine, I can still "send" emails. Actually they are being queued in /var/spool/postfix/maildrop. But once Postfix is started again, these emails will be sent out.
I'm thinking this is really really super simple, but I can't figure out what I need to do. I don't mess with Postfix much (Just let it run and do its thing) so I've got no idea where to even start with this.
We have postfix currently configured to relay all mail out through SES using the code below.
