How I handle my email:

I run a Dovecot server on my home network (inaccessible externally) that I connect to via Gnus. I use fetchmail to pull mail from my personal mailserver (, also running Dovecot), and

Mail rules are assigned on if it needs to bounce, via Sieve. Otherwise, I have Sieve rules on my internal mailserver.

My SMTP server at is Postfix. The SMTP server I use depends on my From address.

@mikegerwitz I really enjoy these posts. I wish you turn these into web pages that permanently sits somewhere and is easier to find outside mastodon.


@vu3rdd Thank you; I appreciate the feedback.

I hope to aggregate on my website at some point, and elaborate on them a bit. But I've been wanting to do that for years, so I decided posting brief summaries to Mastodon would be better than nothing, and then give me something to build off of.

Your feedback will help motivate me to do so. I'll let you know when it happens.
