I find myself mulling over the creation of a mail server yet again. Having
participated in the qmail workshop I feel I could pull off a qmail mail
server without too much trouble.
What are the merits and demerits of the various MTA's out there? I have read
that sendmail has security flaws and to steer clear of this. Aaron
recommended Postfix and one of his biggest reasons appeared to be because it
is GPL'd where qmail is not. qmail appears to be highly configurable for
things like spam/virus filtering, mailing lists and such. I would be
surprised if Postfix is not just as configurable.
I have also had Kolab server recommended to me but I don't know, this seems to
be over-the-top as far as what my needs are. I suppose I should define them
here as this will most likely influence people's recommendations. I am
talking about setting up a mail server to handle my own domain's mail. Less
than 10 users, not a lot of traffic.
