Re: Push email for mobile?

The plan for next week, so far, is to go through the config for spam and virus filtering (the original plan was to do it all in this part, but I felt I'd have to compress things so much it wouldn't be helpful).

It'd be nice if you could stick in a bit about DEA. That's what I've been using for many years now with great success. I have my mail server set up with a wildcard redirect that sends matching addressees to my actual mailbox. That way I can hand out individual emails to new contacts with zero configuration.

Most random spam fails at the first hurdle because it doesn't match the wildcard template. If I do get spam I can see what address was used and immediately block just that address. It means I don't need to run any kind of spam filtering software.
