Precisely.  Or, since that's a little obscure to people from a non-unix
"sudo /etc/init.d/xxxx restart"

where 'xxxx'  is your local smtp  server (postfix if you're using a default
ubuntu install).

I don't think it's _ever_ been observed, by an experienced user, that Ubuntu
requires a restart for anything. But you normally do need to restart the
services that rely on your changes.
