Should mail server#software? be added somewhere to
Just pointing out that the article is about mail servers. And that mail server#software looks to me about components which are basically tied with MTA and system administration. While the description of mailutils states it is an MUA (mailx). I think MUA is more system user related. Also, there is a mailx wiki article.
Classify everything under "Software"
For clarity, I think it would be good to fit everything in the "Software" category into a subcategory. Currently, it's difficult to tell the roles of some of the packages.
So far, I have added a "Standalone MTAs" section and added software that I'm confident belongs there. There are more that might belong there such as dma.
- What does "standalone" mean actually? Why is it such a notable attribute to be split into a separate section? — Lahwaacz (talk) 20:46, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
- To me, "standalone" indicates that it doesn't include functionality other than being a MTA/MDA. My use case was that I wanted software for my server to simply send email, without receiving. The advantage of seeking software that doesn't provide both functionalities is that the configuration may be greatly simplified.
