As I am not a true Newbie, I checked ifconfig and route -n: allright and I
can ping the server without problem thus no network problem. nslookup works
Tomorrow I'll check traceroute just to see.
I did not install ipchains thus I did not check of course.
I did not install iptables either.

I repeat there must be a default setting of SuSE 7.3 PPC that's different
from other SuSE installation (SuSE 7.2PRO, SuSE7.1PPC, SuSE7.3PRO for PC).

Of course I copied /etc/postfix/ and /etc/postfix/master from my
crashed server to the new installation on the G3. I suppose there was not a
great change in the Postfix version like we are used to with Microsoft and
the new version of Postfix (I forgot to note the version number) should be
able to read a config file made with a six month older Postfix version.
