Default Email routing questions

Hi All,

I've few questions about email routing :

What is the function of "email routing" ? For what is it use ?

Is it for mail relay ? What's the diferrence between "smtp, uucp, slow, error and null" in Type option ?

If is it for mail relay, the mail are scanned by clamav/amavis ? Because there are no option to choose AV and SPAM rules.

Thank you for your answers.

This function is used to route emails to another server. see "transports" in postfix documentation for details.

Yes, if you add a spamfilter user like "@domain.tld" for it.
