+ - Complexity of Sendmail or Postfix Email server

However, the complexity of Sendmail or Postfix is so daunting, and non-sensical that I have attempted a few times without success. Is there a simple email server that a home user can use, that supports Smarthosting, domain catch-all addresses, and adding users and multiple domains without setting up so much overhead that if you lose it, you pretty much have to start all over.

I don't care about Spam filters, or web-mail, or all that other garbage, GMail does that for me. The infrastructure of these large email systems is too much for a simple home user who wants to enable the power of the web to his/her advantage. eXtremail did it, but no one else has been able to."

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.

Working...
