Ansible role with commentary for setting up your own mail server with Postfix and Dovecot. This could be considered a part two of Mail relay, MX backup and spam filtering with Postfix. Many postfix configurations are identical between these setups.
If you run your own mail server it is a good idea to have a MX backup in place. When your mail server goes down or you need to upgrade it, the MX backup will step in and store all mail until the mail server is back up.
På två veckor har det ansamlats 26 stycken skräppost i min skräppostmapp. Av dessa är 17 stycken på svenska, de flesta skickade från Sverige av svenska företag! I Sverige är det obegripligt nog lagligt för företag att spamma andra företag.
I have now been using MailMate for about 10 month and I’m more than pleased with it. Everything good I wrote about in MailMate replaces GyazMail after four years is still true. The latest 64 bit beta build is rock solid and consumes less than 200 MB of RAM with 60000+ messages.
Four years ago I replaced Eudora with GyazMail and wrote about it in GyazMail replaces Eudora after 15 years and Two weeks with GyazMail. Now GyazMail has been replaced with MailMate. After moving all my locally stored mail to a local IMAP server switching mail client got a lot easier.
I prefer to store (archive) my mail locally. After moving my mail between mail clients a couple of time to many I decided to set up a local IMAP server. This will give me a mail client independent local storage that is in a standard format and future proof.
This is a followup to GyazMail replaces Eudora after 15 years. I have now used GyazMail for two weeks and it’s working well but has room for improvement. What I really like with GyazMail GyazMail is rock solid and fast, it feels like software I can depend upon.
I have been using Eudora as my mail client since 1995, except for a couple of years when I used Claris Emailer. This week I made the switch to GyazMail. (Also check out the followup Two weeks with GyazMail).
