Deploying an email service requires patience and technical expertise, as it involves orchestrating a myriad of heterogeneous software components. The benefit of self-hosted email is greater privacy for end-users. In the past, Debian contributors had unsuccessful attempts to compile a unified package that would make such deployments easier. My proposal for GSoC ’21 outlines a 9-week plan for packaging an email server to be run on Debian-powered SBCs. It is divided into 3 release cycles and 2 “extra credit” tasks. If successfully completed, the end product will provide interoperability, spam detection, transport security through encryption and traffic filtering through isolation.
