In my post fix configuration files I keep finding options / settings like these
var = $default_values
option = $default_values
For example this is out put form a grep I ran.
/conf/main.cf.default:initial_destination_concurrency = 5
./conf/main.cf.default:lmtp_destination_concurrency_failed_cohort_limit = $default_destination_concurrency_failed_cohort_limit
./conf/main.cf.default:lmtp_destination_concurrency_limit = $default_destination_concurrency_limit
I would like to know what those $defautl values are. How can I find out. Are they kept in a files that I can read some where. Is there a man page I can go to.
The postfix documentation is extensive, I have been read all morning. I still have not found how to find out what the defaults on my installation are. I don't know if the distro I am using Ubuntu 8.04 made changes to the default values before shipping. The only way for to check is see where / how those default values are actually set.
I know what I need to do to fix a problem I have I just don't want to make changes with out understanding how it can affect other part of the system.
