New mail server

Please add stuff, yo.

Wishlist for new mail server

  • Completely backwards compatible (duh)
  • SMTP auth
  • Virus scanning
  • The mailing list traffic should go through it (to avoid duplicate antispam nonsense)
    • Why not do all the mailing list stuff on this box? I can't see the need for another xen instance just to forward some mail. --Pert 20:14, 24 July 2007 (BST)
    • There was some security nonsense I ignored because if the lists server is self contained that's less of a worry. Not that it was much of a worry. I can't see merging things offering many benefits though? --Bung 00:07, 25 July 2007 (BST)
    • Just one less debian install to keep secure and up-to-date. --Pert 07:31, 25 July 2007 (BST)

Software that'll possibly achieve this

  • Exim4
  • Dovecot
  • Clamav/amavis etc

Things that should not be forgotten

  • /etc/aliases
  • ecartis
  • @gamesoc.org
