@daniels I'm self hosting #exim + #dovecot mail on #odroid HC1, running #debian. Yeah, setup is kinda pain, but all local stuff is automated/documentef with #salt so I could re-lauch it on other machine easyer. Lot's of fiddling with DNS entries, add #Letsencrypt too. Havent set up any spam filtering, no need so far... Biggest issue is that #gmail likes to move my first messages to the junk folder by default..? Anyhow, FEELS GOOD communicating with non-google users, like some eshops.
I'm not talking about the clients just mail server. Already have a next cloud (webmail) and mail client on my Ubuntu laptop which I would keep.
@kristof @Talkless They provide proper documentation at https://kb.mailbox.org/display/MBOKBEN/Using+e-mail+addresses+of+your+domain
I also set up catch all for my domain: https://kb.mailbox.org/display/MBOKBEN/Using+catch-all+alias+with+own+domain
Not to much work, mx records and txt.
I didn't yet check all those extras.
@daniels @Talkless Yeah, I’m also mailbox.org, and their service is quite nice. But their function to GPG-encrypt incoming mail (à la protonmail, but using standard IMAP and GPG) acts a bit weird sometimes, and overall having more control over mail handling would be nice, so I’m thinking about moving to a self hosted setup. But all this talk about other servers rejecting mail even with all the proper DNS records set up sounds frightening. I might keep around my mailbox.org account (but without the domain alias) to communicate with people on gmail when I have to, I guess.
@ademalsasa Looks interesting, probably useful, though I would like it more if it would have been base on pure Debian, not Ubuntu...
