I do not like to condense the docs this unnecessarily, it costs nothing to have
this example here, and while yes, there's a very similar how-to already the
distinction between "proxmox-mailgateway" and "proxmox-mailgateway-container" is
not small and thus it warrants it's own example - thus we explicitly added it as such.

Reverted this one back.
