Unix pipeline? What's wrong with socat / ssh?

netcat allowed me to rescue files off an ancient WindowsNT4 computer
with no USB, and a dead OS, about 22 years ago - linux liveboot off
CD, mount, find|tar|gzip|nc -> nc|gunzip|tar

Was very pleased that day - Unix actually works :)

I have been a fervent believer in the power of pipelines of little
boxes ever since..

Always sounded cool, but never managed to generate the "need" within
me to learn how to do this at home.

I thought qmail was "nicely compartmentalized" in the unix way
anyway? Why is internal auth a good thing?

Package: dkimproxy
Description-en: an SMTP-proxy that signs and/or verifies emails,
using the Mail::DKIM module

I guess ldap/dkim are more for corporate deplyoment?

Yeah, sadly the license got me initially, then by the time there was
an "installer" in contrib, had become comfortable with main.cf

Ah, must be Aoki just packages it.

If you don't need IMAP fetching, mpop has worked well
for many years now...

IMAP always felt like not quite the right tool - heading towards
centralisation rather than distributed .. just a feeling though.
