Do remember that "easier to configure" is very user-dependent. I
tried postfix, and almost tore my hair out before realizing I could
use sendmail instead. Ditto for maildrop/procmail. Somehow, I find
all these old-school Unix utilities to be almost friendly... but
then, I used to program in forth, and I write plain TeX. I'm slowly
learning Python as a nod to modernity, and to replace awk.
Ei elämä ole vaikeaa,
