The remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

This update to the postfix package fixes two bugs in the chroot
script that in some cases could have prevented postfix from working
at all:

- The chroot script would malfunction if no postfix dynamic maps were

- The chroot script would not enforce a safe umask, and could create
a chroot with wrong permissions

This update also introduces all bugfixes from postfix release 2.3.6.
