@maple All the extra packages recommended in that guide on akadia should be automatic dependencies when you install spamassassin from the repos; no need to actually install everything by hand or from source unless that's your kind of thing.


It's been a couple of years since I last set up either Postfix or Dovecot, but I remember them both being fairly plug-and-play out of the box on Debian and its derivatives. I just found and read through these guides; while Debian/Ubuntu-centered, they seem comprehensive:

And for spam filtering, I've used Spamassassin for the last 20-ish years; this guide does a decent job explaining that:

@maple Dovecot + Postfix would do the job and aside from their dependencies I don't think there's anything else you'd NEED to install. While not strictly necessary, it'd be a Good Server Administrator thing to harden Postfix's configuration to make sure it's not an open relay.

I'd personally recommend getting a TLS cert (letsencrypt would certainly do) and using IMAPS and SMTP-over-TLS instead of the clear-text versions of the protocols. But again, not absolutely necessary.

I really like coffee, but why do third-wave baristas insist on extracting their espresso so that it tastes lemony?

Not sure why I thought it would be easy, bit it turns out that removing the chuck on a lathe older than me is quite the task.

Iโ€™m pretty sure I should be sleeping, and looking at my phone probably isnโ€™t helping, but I'm just not tired.
The storm outside the window sounds nice.

@verycarapesque Thank you for sharing this. I have a friend that shares his daily gratitudes on that blue site, and the combination of those plus your recommendation have inspired me to start journaling. Hooray for self-help!

boost if you give goths permission to pose and take photos on your grave after you die

Memo to myself: even if the fountain pen reservoir looks empty, and the pen doesn't write, be sure to flush it before switching ink colors.
Related: the ink I bought this week is actually a very nice royal blue, not a dark blue-black

I finally got sick of having to remember to mute Twitch before I walk away from my desk, so I wrote a script that mutes/un-mutes the pulseaudio to correspond to the screen lock state. It's been a week and I've easily forgotten it was there. Which I think is the sign of a good solution.

I keep accidentally tearing tabs out of my firefox window. I wonder if there's a stickiness setting that'd make that happen less often.

I wonder what's more expensive, bifocal-lens glasses, or contact lenses and reading glasses?

does anyone else almost always say "please" when asking Siri/Alexa/Googles-Assistant-whatever-its-named to do something, like set an alarm or timer?

@noelle Would this work? It doesn't seem to have a way to tell WHICH application generated the notification, but it seems persistent and unobtrusive: extensions.gnome.org/extension

friendly reminder: your tea is getting cold.
