Hey guy I have a spare server that is just collecting dust so i figured i'd start a project to make good use of it. I am looking to set up, for the first time, a mailing platform using open source software. I really have no direction and am just in the planning phase. However, just looking online each software has TONS of documentation so im sure upon reading the manuals i can get my questions answered in the technical aspect. But right now i am in the choosing phase. There are plenty of options to choose from and im sure some of you have been down this road and maybe can help me to save headaches or help choose one that is most forgiving for complete noobs (whatever that means) For MTA some people have suggested the following: Postfix (leaning towards this one since it has a lot of documentation, including that "big book") Exim (havent read anything on this; iirc this was mostly for very light mailing purposes?) Sendmail (they say this was hard to configure properly, and upon further googling it seems the same devs released a better mta called MeTA1, still this is all new to me dont know if one would be better than the other) As for Managers, the two main options are; MailMan PHPList Both seem to have features that some of the more commercial platforms use so im sure either one will be a good choice? This is where i hope someone will vouch for one or the other based on prior experience. For now thats about it. After finding the right combination it will probably take me a few days to take in all the info from the documentation then i'll start configuring it. Might be even longer since my linux skills are mediocre at best. But again, this is all fopr fun. Its only a project. But what im hoping for is that once its fine tuned i'll be able to turn it into a decent money maker. If it helps my intentions are to be able to send at least 1mil messages at functional speeds with headway for more if i please.
