mail-queues and flush them to an external host. Then we only need a sendmail
emulation (like ssmtp provides).

For Mail Proxy, I would suggest Optuse SMTPD (possibly in combination with

For Mail-Relays/Comm-Server I think qmail is one of the more
secure solutions. But on the Other hand, the Comm-server Issue is outside
the scope of the basic work we have to do here, therefore: no religious war
on that topic.

Hmm.. I think we don't have the Optuse smtpd as an Debian Package, so I will
do that.
