Going away from Sendmail

Post by Shuro » Mon Feb 22, 2010 8:32 am

First: Sendmail is evil :!:
Second: Configuration is a mess, other mailserver like postfix are 100-times better

Please go away from Sendmail, everything is better, even a own programmed mailserver.

I would be willing to contribute financially toward switching to postfix. maschoff, how much would that cost? :)

It is not a matter of money, but a matter of religion!

No, honestly, we would have no problem if someone replaces sendmail with postfix and we would put that change into the mainline. But we do not know postfix and we do not have the time to learn it and integrate it.

So, I would suggest that someone from the OpenEMM community who knows postfix well tackles this issue. And if there are technical questions in the process regarding OpenEMM code we would be glad to answer them.

My suggestion is JAMES:

... and get rid of sendmail and python smtp proxy, making OpenEMM really portable.
We could even run OpenEMM and MTA in the same JVM.

I will not vote on this for you're asking for wrong answers:)
