    Hi all,

    I am wondering if I email someone within the same domain, does the email "Leave" the server, out to the internet then comes back, or does postfix know better and keeps it within the domain mailserver?

    I am wondering if it worth while encrypting an email if it is to someone else within the same domain, on the same mailserver.

    Emails that are sent within the same local domain do not leave the server.
