Sorry, I'm not sure I got the point here. Do you just mean that your
computer will not be used as a mail server?
If this is the case (quite normal...), you can configure postfix to act
"local only" (the postfix faq has some examples, IIRC), but you can't
*completely* stop it, or no mail at all will ever be delivered to local users.
