Q.  Postfix: hide version and name

A.  Don't want to show everyone who connects to your mail server
exactly what you're running?

In file /etc/postfix/main.cf
# Comment out lines like this # smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name # smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name ($mail_version) # Leave this smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP
$mail_name is 'Postfix' $mail_version is your version of Postfix So why show either?
