Although Tonis promised to work on #3339 today, the question “Should we run our own mail server or not?” didn’t let me sleep. After reading 4 Reasons to Run Your Own Email Server I still thought “Let’s learn how to do it”, but then I read Configure Postfix to Send Mail Using an External SMTP Server and decided to try this way as next step.

The libsasl2-modules package was already installed. Changed myhostname from to simply Otherwise just as in the linode docs:

sudo nano /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
sudo postmap /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
sudo chown root:root /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd.db
sudo chmod 0600 /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd.db
sudo nano /etc/postfix/
ll /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
sudo service postfix restart
sudo service postfix status

I opened #3412 and worked on it. To make the problem more visible I added a fixture demo2 for lino_xl.lib.lists, which adds a list membership for every partner. In Lino Amici we now have a detail window for partners as well. This seems an easy and reasonable solution for the main problem. The lino_xl.lib.lists.MembersByList table has two new (virtual) columns “Address” and “Contact details”. lino_xl.lib.lists.MembersByPartner is now in summary display mode, and list memberships now have a detail window.
