You don't get that option on a mailing list. You can ignore what we tell

Sort of. I'd go ahead and let it install the packages. Then, one at a
time, try removing postfix and python, and see what it wants to remove in
addition. I'd be a bit surprised if you can have anything that looks much
like Ubuntu without python, but postfix isn't necessary.

Not a chance. Though anyone masochistic enough to install qmail shouldn't
have any fear of an OS reinstall.
