Description

This issue is about refactoring the main mail server. Possible improvements include:

Base system:
  • Upgrade to Debian 10
Dovecot (IMAP):
  • Change mail storage format from maildir to mdbox, possibly compressed
Postfix (SMTP):
  • Replace amavis by rspamd
amavis
  • consider setting Postfix' notify_classes to empty
  • switch to Milter
hostmaster alias
  • consider switching to local mailbox only in case of too many notifications
domains
  • switch to DNSSEC and TLSA records if feasible; MTA-STS seems to be where the consensus lies now wrt SMTPd authentication, we should probably do that instead (or as well, it's not incompatible with DANE)

Aiming for Q4, but of course we can improve the setup gradually already earlier

With all that's on the table atm, and the fact that this is not super urgent, I propose to not look into this before end-June, unless you see it more urgent

Guilhem, can you remove/strike through from the list of tasks what's been done already?
I propose to shift the rest to Q4 then, what do you think?

Three nice howtos I found we might want to look into for inspiration and back-contributing our edits:

Let's also aim for Q1, also the box is on Debian 9 still
I'm currently redoing my mail server based on the ISPMail howto, merging with my setup. Using Postfix, Dovecot, rspamd and ClamAV. Happy to share the documentation when finished.
