Mail server was maintained for me, my family and my fellow friend Bakus. At most we hosted there two dozen of domains with about ten mailbox each and lots of aliases.

Mail server also provided support for distribution of mailing list from (between 5k and 10k mails for every issue)

After closing many side projects I decided to move few domains that’s lasted to vps with. managed mail server and stop maintaining this setup.
