Easy integration of Amavisd-new, Spamassassin, and Clamav

Registered by Scott Kitterman on 2009-11-13

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "Mail stack improvements for Maverick" for updated plans.

Build on postfix-dovecot and provide a similarly easy way to bring anti-spam/anti-virus integration.

Whiteboard

ttx review (20091204) -- User stories could include the basic admin that wants an all-in-one mail server for his email domain. Design / Implementation doesn't mention the tasksel modifications (only described in Summary). Otherwise looks good, identified potential pain points are 1/ how would converting the tasksel entry to a task category affect space in the installer screen, 2/ the postgrey MIR.
jib review (20091209) -- I agree with TTX and don't have anything further to add.
kitterman update (20091211) -- User stories enhanced. Deferred Tasksel for a future effort. Postgrey has a pretty good reputation, so I think MIR will be OK. If not we'll defer greylisting for this cycle and search for a suitable application next time around. Ready for review again

Removed UDS notes (they are in the detailed spec).
