[Freedombox-discuss] CAs and cipher suites for cautious servers like FreedomBox

PFS with snakeoil works.
Trying it out here https://snakeoil.cf

Using Apache 2.4 on a server running Jessie, it looks reasonable using
just the default ciphers of SSLCipherSuite HIGH:MEDIUM:!aNULL:!MD5.
Open to tweaking SSLCipherSuite.

Now trying pfs for Postfix, will this email actually use it?
