Setting up a mail server with OpenSMTPD, Dovecot and Rspamd

Contributed by rueda on from the Puffy delivers dept.

On his blog, Gilles Chehade (gilles@) has written a very detailed article on running an OpenSMTPD mail server.

The article begins:

- NO TL;DR: this time, I spent hours writing, you should spend minutes reading.
- OK... I explain in WAY TOO MUCH details how to setup a mail server

So if you have an interest in running your own mail service, you now have an excellent reference as a starting point.

      Obviously you haven't read through the entire article. It's no April Fool's joke. Actually, Gilles took quite a long time to compose a well-thought out article. I was able to use his example and integrate my existing setup with rspamd.

    Great article! Wish it was covering a Roundcube installation/integration as well. :/

      Roundcube is easy. Just install it and look at the pkg readme.

    Great tutorial for OpenSMTPD users.

    For those who prefer Postfix, MySQL, OpenLDAP, Dovecot, Amavisd, RoundCube, the following one is super cool:
