An attempt to categorize what the current mail setup does for Debian, and a wishlist for new features.
Standard alias file/role account handling
Different handling for different subdomains (e.g., the PTS has a header check that no other domain has, popcon is much more lenient about accepting mail with bad envelope senders, etc)
User settable per-user greylisting, RBL lookups, etc
Virtual domain support - per domain alias file/user/group/etc settings
bsmtp mail - should we keep this? Do people use it? It seems like this should be replaced by the more generic virtual domain handling.
Several anti-spam measures, but discussing the specifics here is probably not that useful.
- AUTH based relay?
- RSA sig based relay?
- mail hub/spoke architecture?
