The other day, I came across an excellent article on replacing Gmail with your own solution. As great as it was, it is really only meant for a single user and isn’t scoped to providing email for people who will never SSH into the mail server. So, I began to search out a build for a good mail server.
What I Think I’ll Be Using
- Debian as the OS. Debian is my go-to for Linux servers, as it is stable and has a fairly small footprint.
- Postfix for my MTA. I played with exim4, but didn’t care for it much. We’ll see.
- Dovecot for IMAP access.
- AMaViS, ClamAV, and SpamAssassin for keeping things safe and sane.
I’ll check back as my build progresses and things get online.
