Hi folks,

I received a call from one of our fine MUUG friends in regards to my 
mail server.

With the caveat that I am nowhere near an expert, I am happy to share my 

I'll give a brief description of what I have below:

Nextcloud 18 integrated with e-mail (Postfix / Dovecot / Rspamd):

- File syncing/sharing capabilities of Nextcloud. It works like Dropbox 
used to back in the early 2010s. It has a lot of functionality, but also 
no frills and simple.

- E-mail functionality is tied to Nextcloud, so users can log in to NC 
and get their files, e-mails, calendar, tasks and so on. Lots of addons 
available as well!

- E-mail/Calendar/Tasks/Contacts can also be set up on PCs using an 
e-mail client (I use Thunderbird) and phones (I use Android). Should 
work on Outlook/Apple as well.

- Nextcloud Talk for instant messaging, Notes for... well... notes.

- What it requires for hardware depends on the number of users, but as 
someone who has most of its computing equipment straight out of the 
recycle pile, I can tell you it does not need anything fancy. The only 
thing that's out of the ordinary is that you'll need a static IP and a 
business internet package (because of the whole Port 25 blocking thing 
we discussed here a while ago). I got a nice deal with Shaw, and I am 
overall happy with it. I was able to order a business plan as myself 
without issues.

If anyone else here wants to have a chat about that, let me know so we 
can all talk about it together. Our tentative time would be tomorrow 
around 7PM. I asked him to call me, but if anyone else wants to 
participate we can find a way to work it out so we can all talk!

Kind regards,

Alberto Abrao
