Unikernel Mailing list server in OCAML

Email is still one of the main channel of communication.Setting up and maintaining something as simple as a reliable mailing list in-house is significantly more complex than it ought to be. Out of convenience, many organisations and communities outsource running their maiilng lists service to third-party agents. However, this not only creates an unnecessary dependency but also reduces confidentiality, which can be a critical aspect.

This project has the ambition to win back the means of communication, developing a new mailing list application service that is easier to maintain securely (through unikernels using MirageOS), and is efficient in terms of resource usage. The service should integrate into existing infrastructures seamlessly.
