Mail-in-a-Box – one-click, easy-to-deploy email server

README.md

By @JoshData and contributors.

Mail-in-a-Box helps individuals take back control of their email by defining a one-click, easy-to-deploy SMTP+everything else server: a mail server in a box.

Please see https://mailinabox.email for the project’s website and setup guide!

Our goals are to:

Make deploying a good mail server easy.
Promote decentralization, innovation, and privacy on the web.
Have automated, auditable, and idempotent configuration.
Not make a totally unhackable, NSA-proof server.
Not make something customizable by power users.
Additionally, this project has a Code of Conduct, which supersedes the goals above. Please review it when joining our community.

The Box

Mail-in-a-Box turns a fresh Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit machine into a working mail server by installing and configuring various components.

It is a one-click email appliance. There are no user-configurable setup options. It “just works”.

The components installed are:

SMTP (postfix), IMAP (dovecot), CardDAV/CalDAV (ownCloud), Exchange ActiveSync (z-push)
Webmail (Roundcube), static website hosting (nginx)
Spam filtering (spamassassin), greylisting (postgrey)
DNS (nsd4) with SPF, DKIM (OpenDKIM),
