How difficult is it to run your own mailserver? ๐Ÿค”

@christopher recht simpel wenn du ne รถffentliche IP hast und den DNS mal eingerichtet hast. mailcow.email/

@christopher It's generally not recommended and if you have to ask I would probably advice against it.

I'm a happy customer at Fastmail and I can recommend them.

@aledjones Eventough I have actually no practical expierince on using Docker? I am still considering and reading the Guide @sheogorath@g0v.social sent me (g0v.social/@sheogorath/1000230)

@christopher @sheogorath His approach seems like a good step. I personally prefer mailcow, as I work a lot with docker. ๐Ÿ˜Š

@kkinder That is what plunged me long time from operating an own mailserver. But my interest in how a mailserver works increased and my requirement wishes for mail boxes also run bigger like "sent later"-mails, many GB mailspace, better Spam-Detection (does SpamAssasin really learn from Mails I flag?) and server side filter rules.

@christopher I would be really surprised if you manage better spam detection than a service. SpamAssassin does use bayesian filtering (something I have some experience with), but that's 20 year old technology.

"Send later" is a pretty exotic feature, but most mail as a service providers should give you pretty decent server-side filtering.

The problem with rolling your own mail server is that it'll be hard to host, among other things.

@kkinder My hope would be that rspamd does a better job than SpamAssassin does. Server-Side filtering is indeed my priority. "Send later" is more nice to have. You definitly convinced me to rethink hosting myself. :)

@dirk thanks! seems to be one of the best tutorials in the internet. Already got the link, but I appreciate every hint, even it is the same ;-)
