Email has many flaws, but it's the last, strongest part of the non-centralised Internet we have left. We should promote and support it for that reason.
@ebel Curious to know what are those!
My only concern is that corporations suppressing the mail delivery from self-hosted email domains is sad.
@mysticmode yeah big corps like Google hindering email is a flaw. If more people self hosted, it could help stop the centralisation.
IMO flaws in email are: security (ha! What security), that it's hard/practically impossible to send large files, and most email clients being horrible (IMO). And spam of course (which is partially why we have centralisation)
@hirojin @bob @grainloom I've never done it with MTA. But Tor has a transparent proxy thing ( https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TransparentProxy ), which might be useful for making any programme onion address aware (I've only briefly played with it, and the docs point out it's not very secure)
@ebel one of the last open standards used but we need to free DNS
