no you don't. when you configure the

# cat
virtual_mailbox_domains = proxy:mysql:/usr/local/etc/postfix/
# cat
user = u
password = p
hosts = ip add or name of the host which the mysql db resides on
dbname = 
query =
so your web interface (i don't say GUI anymore thanks to windependence ) and mysql db can reside on a different machine.
this way you don't have to overload or open new security threats on your mail machine.

Stop! think! ... the problem is somewhere between the monitor and chair...
