Great news! I have simple monitoring running for postfix \o/

By adding this to localhost.cfg     (located
in  /usr/local/icinga/etc/objects)

> # Postfix vk7hse.hobby-site.org
> define service{
> 	use				local-service
> 	host_name			localhost
> 	service_description		SMTP
> 	check_command			check_smtp

And creating postfix.cfg     (located in  /usr/local/icinga/etc/objects)

> define host{
> 	use                             generic-postfix
> 	host_name                       localhost
> 	alias                           postfix
> 	address               
> 	check_command                   check_smtp
> 	max_check_attempts              10
> 	notification_interval           120
> 	notification_period             24×7
> 	notification_options            d,u,r
> 	contact_groups                  admins
> 	}

Sorry for quotes but the format was mangled otherwise! I now am starting
to see the relationship between the term service and host!

Thanks to Christian for the URL, although implemented slightly different
to nagois I have it working !!!!
