s/qmail (Version 3.x)

s/qmail (pronounced skew-mail) is the combination of qmail-1.03 + Spamcontrol V2 + IPv6 support packaged together.

Features

Note: s/qmail provides a SPF hook, but does not support it directly. DKIM is still under investigation.

The software is due in 2015.

Roadmap

I've started integration of IPv6 into Spamcontrol. The following resources are available:

Protocol extension: QMTPS

s/qmail will provide additionally the TLS-secured protocol QMTPS to couple several s/qmail instances and distributed queues among different nodes.
IANA has now assigned port 6209 for QMTPS.

Development goals

What I'm aiming for:

Communication and security features:

Note: The checkmark (✓) means 'integrated' but not necessarily fully tested.

I'm close to provide an integrated alpha-version. Tailoring s/qmail for the slashpackage convention is mostly done, but needs some fine tuning still.

Beta testers wanted:
If you are willing to support s/qmail's development, I would be glad to receive an email telling you are able to do some beta-testing. In particular, I'm eager to provide support for Unix systems outside BSD and Linux.
