Postfix + Postgres + Dovecot
Well, people.... Most of yesterday (until this morning around 12:30am) I spent trying to figure out what to do about my email situation.
Here's my situation: I get so much friggin' spam, I can't stand it. This shouldn't be news to anyone. The person who receives no spam is a person who doesn't have an inbox.
So, I decided to take the matters into my own hands.
Now, my gmail account has been wonderful. 99% of all spam is blocked. I'm talking about my own personal email server at home.
I did some digging and soon found out the right solution is to completely re-design the way I handle email.
Old setup: Posfix + Pam + Courier
New setup: Postfix + Postgres + Dovecot
Yup.... it works like a charm.
I best be posting some "how-to" on the set up or I'll forget it for sure. ugh... Nah... I forgot that I'm backing my whole /etc directory up, so I'm good. :)
Anyway... Kind of a stupid post, but I had to write something.
Oh yeah... on an non-technical note, I've been watching "So You Think You Can Dance?", and man.... It really is amazing how beautiful those moves can be. Pretty incredible dancers....
So... Yeah. See ya.
