    Hi.
    Our customer don't want to use the smtp in accordance with their security policy.
    So the postfix service was stopped, and files were piling up in /var/spool/postfix/maildrop.

    I want to know a suitable solution for use with Gateway Appliances.
    Thank you.

    Previously, the solution offered in Ca was to start the postfix service, but this method cannot be resolved.

    I'd recommend that you find an external solution for email as alerting is a fairly important part of Gateway operation. External email servers can be configured. If the customer doesn't want to do that, you may have to find out what about email is concerning and get to the root of the problem.

    Postifx queues can be emptied via the 'postsuper -d ALL' commmand, as documented publicly. That should empty that maildrop directory directly.
