[rt-users] MSMTP works for sending, but receiving is now broken - And why a full MTA?

This is for Asif AND Thomas in regards to my previous email about MSMTP.
First, I did manage to get MSMTP working to send email out. While
outgoing mail worked, incoming via fetchmail suddenly stopped
complaining it couldn't bind to port 25:
name 0: connection to localhost:smtp [] failed: Connection

Now, to get to the question Thomas posed to me as well as for
We're looking to deploy a second RT instance for our Service Department
(our IT Dept system might get rebuilt as I have yet to get an answer
from the distro list as to why my file attachments can now no longer be
over 1MB after a database mangling). This ticket desk needs to
communicate to clients our on the Internet. The thinking was to just
have a simple SMTP agent to send the mail out & have fetchmail poll the
server for incoming versus running a full-on mail server.
We run an Exchange server that relays out to a Postfix server, then to
the Internet.
Why is it Postfix is needed? Why can't I have lighter weight agents do
the work instead? The problem I had with Postfix is for some reason on
my new RT system the moment I add the smtpd_recipient_restrictions and
put anything down there to restrict, Postfix stops working completely. I
want to control what email addresses leave the system.
