Oh man setting up postfix and dovecot (plus things like rspamd) is a pain in the ass.
But it's worth it, having your own mail server is just quite a good feeling.
Now I just need to find out how to get it to pass the spam filter of Google, despite the server and the DNS zone being well-configured (better than my school's mail server according to tests, but that one still manages to pass. I have no idea why.)

    Oh god I know the feeling, and I tend to skip the receiving part since the addresses I host are no-reply anyway

    As for Google spam check, give it some time. If they receive a bunch of good emails from you over time, you'll get better rankings. Yes that's an infuriating system

    Actually @linuxxx suggested mailcow to me.
    Might be a little bulky and eating some performance but you dont have to do anything :)

    @ThatPerlDeb Mailcow? Never heard of that, thanks. Will consider using it instead of postfix and dovecot the next time I set up a mail server, haha.

    As for now, it works fine and is no longer widely considered as spam!

    Mailcow sets up about everything related to mail stuff. Also creating new inboxes and redirects can be done with a few clicks
