Debian Mail Server with Raspberry Pi

Hello.

I have my own domain, I would like ask if someone has tested set up a debian mail server with Raspberry Pi, I have very low email traffic volume, and will be very nice if I can run Postfix, dovecot, spamassassin, apache and squirrelmail.

Of course, attaching an HD via usb.

Do I'm asking too much or seems possible? If not, any similar machine or a low power machine able to run this?

Thanks
Josep

You could use the Debian package search engine:

I see no reason why that won't work, although I have not tested it.

USB HD's definitely work, and the rest is just software!

It will be a bit of a squeeze getting that lot in 256MB of RAM, I think. Of course, you can buy two and put the mail infrastructure on one and the web front end on the other :-)

I realise this is an old thread but I've managed to set up a mail server running Postfix, Dovecot and Apache+Squirrelmail on a Pi.

It runs just fine as a personal mail server, despite the low memory. I wrote a tutorial for anyone wanting to try the same.

I've also got Spamassassin working and I'm hoping to write a tutorial for that too, but I want to tinker with it for a while longer first.

Here's a link:
