Why is configuring mail such a pain? I've managed to set up a mail server but I'm so scared of touching anything in the configs.
I tried setting up a spam folder with dovecot and spamassassin but I keep breaking everything. I try to find documentation and ways other people have done it but I /still/ manage to break my mail server.

I don't like mail, like.. at all. Mail is terrible and SMTP is a terribe protocol. Fight me.

@evertprants Unfortunately, email is the only open standard everyone supports. Which is awful. Because it's awful.
