As pointed out before, email is a can of worms easier avoided than 
handled properly.  Because "properly" means more than the classic 
"reliably" and "without too much spam": FreedomBox "properly" includes 
"free from maintenance" and "privacy-aware" and "low resource".

How to limit spam on low-resource hardware without leaking privacy by 
use of external spam filters external smtp hosting?

Only way I see is to limit smtp to trusted peers - which means not 
really standard internet email but custom FreedomBox-mail, as we need 
some custom mechanism to resolve who are friends _and_ tighten smtp 
setup to only communicate directly and securely with those friends.
