Fair enough -- perhaps it's my stupidity, but doing what I believe to be
following that readme to the letter, on pristine Debian installs, seems to
mean that I end up with a system that refuses to deliver mail to local

The most recent attempt only allowed me to deliver mails locally if I
twiddle with a couple of things not mentioned in the README?  IIRC the
thing that fixed it was probably replacing $mydomain with my actual domain
in the line:

  postfix-mydestination: $mydomain



(as pointed to in your README)

Prior to that all I got was complaints that the machinename looped back to
myself in postfix's logs.

I'd also be interested to your response to the leaf-node patch question,
because my current impression is that one would need to maintain a local
package repository to get something that was equivalent to the OpenPKG
install using these .deb packages, and I don't want to find out that there
are a bunch of other patches that I've not noticed that I also need to
patch into otherwise standard debian packages.

Cheers, Phil.

P.S. sorry if these mails sound stroppy -- I should probably have started
mailing before I got angry with it, but wanted to get some vague
understanding of what was going on, rather than mailing an "it doesn't
work" report -- please be aware that I'm perfectly happy to install another
 system from scratch in order to document exactly what I really needed to
do to get it working if that helps -- I'd just like to try to gain some
level of confidence that what I'm going to end up with is actually a viable
kolab server before I go to that effort (given that I don't otherwise run
kolab, so I'm not totally sure that the beast that I currently have, which
seems to be reasonably cheerful, really is working 100%)
