Format: Paperback
Postfix: The Definitive Guide by Kyle D. Dent would be much better titled as Postfix: Cliffnotes. It is written hastily and many sections are left incomplete.
In many cases throughout the book I was left searching the web for answers to my questions on the web. The configuration file reference is nothing short of being deficient. I would estimate 50%-60% of the directives are left out completely, while existing directives contain less of a description than the comments in the configuration file.
If this book was not under the veil of "The Definitive Guide" series I might have been happier. Definitive is defined as "serving to provide a final solution or to end a situation", which is nothing less than I have obtained in prior books I have read in this series.
This book is well suited, and I recommend it, for the person who already has some Postfix or Sendmail experience. If you don't have this experience, plan to use this book as a complement to Google and the Postfix site.

Format: Paperback
This book is not for a Postfix or mail novice. It does explain many concepts in a proficient manner. It does explain more in depth strategies and configurations. However, if you are new to Postfix and expect it to get you up and running without having to troubleshoot through config files and find hints on the web first, you will be let down.

After getting my Postfix server running using online documentation I knew that I had been guessing, and that I would need help to go farther. I started reading the Blum book on the subject, and learned a few things, but I was no less confused.
With Dent's "Postfix: The Definitive Guide" I found what I needed. I have a much clearer understanding now, and I have been able to extend some of the sample code to things I want, such as accepting mail from certain domains on a per-user basis. Highly recommended.
