Yes, I've also done that in another vserver running Postfix + amavisd,
which needs to run on ports 10024 and 10025. But I also take
note of Herbert P's previous comment to the effect that this may not
be entirely safe with the curent networking code (or least that is how
I understood it - I can't find that message now to check). Possibly
it may be safe enough if done in one vserver, but not in more than one?
