10.6.5 -> 10.6.7 breaks postfix setup (with fix)

    Dear Postfix forum,

    After upgrading my Mac OS X client, I got the following error message:

    ... postfix/smtpd[526]: fatal: unsupported dictionary type: mysql

    I noticed that the /usr/libexec/postfix/smtpd executable had been changed, together with who knows what else in that directory. So I restored the old one, only to get a similar error message from the trivial-rewrite executable (in the same directory). So I restored that as well, followed by the cleanup one, and then all is well again.

    So a couple of questions:

    * What should I do to fix things properly?

    * How can I avoid having to do this next time I upgrade the OS?

    Thanks and best regards,


    PS Setup has otherwise worked great - many thanks!
