@M0YNG I agree with you, it is very strange there is no simple tool to setup a standard mailbox on a small server.
I use ISPConfig but it is for hosting websites and emails and setup many things for you (better for heavy hosting).
Have you tried Yunohost? I know some friends happy with it
@F1RUM I have but it is another "full solution" intended to help you self host everything and isn't something that I can drop into a vps (that I know of)
@M0YNG no worries, i run debian with postfix, dovecot, opendkim, and rspamd. is there anything in particular you were looking for?
@ben knowing what stack you use is a great start.
Did you follow a guide or do you have one I could look at?
I'd like to host my own email but I can't find a simple "good enough" setup.
@M0YNG i followed a couple guides and read plenty of documentation. i've actually been meaning to write up a blogpost guide for mailservers for years but i just haven't gotten around to it.
some key notes:
- make sure the hostname that postfix is using matches the rdns for your ip
- test your stuff with mail-tester.com
- double check your dns records
- be sure to set up dovecot-sieve and possibly managesieve for mail filtering (i use this heavily)
@ben awesome, thanks. I may have a play with a domain that I don't already use for something - for when it goes wrong!
Let me know if you do get around to that blog!
