Nixcloud Mail

[Nixcloud Mail]

Getting email infrastructure right is hard, and typically involves a lot of tweaking and manual optimisation. The goal of this project is to provide an easy out of the box mail infrastructure with declarative technology that adheres to modern email standards such as DKIM, SPF, DMARC, DNSSEC and IPv6.

NixOS is a Linux distribution with a unique approach to package and configuration management. Built on top of the Nix package manager, it is completely declarative, makes upgrading systems reliable, and has many other advantages. It is used increasingly in complex environments where reproducible behaviour and configurability matter, from desktop systems to some of the top 500 supercomputers.

The results of this project should greatly simplify the creation, delivery and maintenance of robust and secure email services - including the management of associated DNS records.
