You have to change the lines that have the IP address or IP net
I positively know that Postfix _does not_ need an lo interface: I have a
vserver without any lo mapping running with it; you'll just have to move
content filters etc. to the IP of the Vserver and use Iptables to
them from outside use. Anyway: the solution you proposed yourself is
proably even nicer: have one public and one internal IP so that if your
Iptables will not work, you won't have people connect to the reinject
interface of postfix and so on.

You don't need the block. Just change mynetworks = <vserver ip>/24 and
you'll effectively have the same results as a non-vserver with
Vserver will automatically map connects to localhost to the IP of the
I'm not sure for Squid, but I think it does not make any assumptions
the existance of lo; so it'll probably either run or you will be able
to make it run with small modifications (change all the
occurences in the squid.conf to some other IP).
In case you experience trouble with you can mail me via PM or you may
contact the Postfix/Squid mailing list - I'm quite sure there will be a
solution for both services.
