    Or perhaps you’ve written a rather ground breaking insight into some aspect of Debian and you feel compelled to share it with others? Knock up a longer editorial article and send it to the editors.

    Re: Which secure email server to use? (Score: 0)

    I personally think:

    * sendmail: Not designed with security in mind. Bloated. Hard to configure. Only around because it’s the standard (not unlike wu-ftpd).

    * exim: Not a bad mailer, I don’t have anything against it, really.

    * qmail: Makefiles are abused in ways they were never meant to be, it just has a bizzare architecture, and you need to install everything of djb’s just to get it running. Ugh. Also non-free.

    * postfix: A great, full-featured mailer written from the ground up to be secure.

    So, my recommendations are, in order:

    postfix, exim, qmail, sendmail.
