We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

puppetfinland/postfix — version 2.1.0 Sep 12th 2018

Build Status


A general-purpose postfix module for Puppet. Includes support for monit monitoring and iptables/ip6tables management.

Module usage

Example 1: configure postfix with reasonable defaults for many environments

include ::postfix

Example 2: configure postfix without direct Internet connection to use an internal relayhost which does not require authentication:

class { '::postfix':
  relayhost => '',

Example 3: configure postfix to act as a relayhost for the internal network:

class { '::postfix':
  allow_ipv4_address => '',
  inet_interfaces:   => ' [::1]',

Example 4: configure postfix to send email using a real SMTP account and also rewrite MAIL FROM in the envelope and the message header for certain users with the SMTP username. This is suitable for use with very strict SMTP servers:

class { '::postfix':
  relayhost     => '',
  smtp_username => '',
  smtp_password => 'password',

::postfix::generic_mapping { 'root':
  pattern => 'root',
  result  => '',

::postfix::generic_mapping { 'monit':
  pattern => 'monit',
  result  => '',

Example 5: add additional mailaliases:

::postfix::mailalias { 'john':
    recipient => '',
