  • Is a 'dumb' self-hosted email server possible.
    You could setup a receive only mailserver relatively easily using Maddy ( with a domain name MX record pointed to your server.
  • Easy, Minimalist email?
  • A local maximum on bare metal k8s storage? OpenEBS ZFS LocalPV + Rancher Longhorn
    I may in the future go back and try Ceph again, but for now I'm just putting really low storage requirement workloads on Longhorn and seeing how that goes -- for example I run maddy (which is an excellent piece of software) and I don't get that many emails on the various accounts I have set up (and SMTP loves to retry) so longhorn is good enough. Another thing I could try is LINSTOR (which is drbd/drbd9 deep down) -- what I loved about OpenEBS ZFS LocalPV is that it makes all of these options available (with a little bit of a performance hit) as it has support for raw block volumes, separately formatted disks etc.

    There are some useful protocol extensions supported but some other important ones are missing (e.g. CONDSTORE).

    There are no known issues with popular clients but performance may be a bit rough. Both due to missing extensions and storage implementation quality e.g. SEARCH may get slow for large inboxes.

    Last time I found Maddy. I haven't tested it yet, but it looks promising. Docker image is ~27MB only!
