Postfix package improvements

Registered by Scott Kitterman on 2011-05-02

Postfix is the standard MTA for Ubuntu. The current packaging doesn't fully support all the upstream capabilities in the current release. We should add multi-instance support and sqlite support and review recent enhancements to postfix to see if we've missed anything else.
