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.
