Hula sous Debian : p’tit truc

hula

Attention, ce billet est purement technique et concerne les curieux voulant installer Hula sous Debian. Dans un sens, on peut le voir comme une forme de poésie ultra-geek (la fleur Hula se dépose dans la spirale Debian grâce à la magie d’apt-get), mais bon… passez plutôt au billet suivant ! 😉

The bulb and the flower…

Hula-Jabber I’m running the Fritalk public Jabber server for nearly 10 months now. I highly recommend you this wonderful Jabber server with all services you ever dreamed about and a bunch of friendly admins. (Watch out! The 1.0 release is coming shortly…)

But since a few days, we have a new big concurrent : Google Talk. I’m very pleased that google is using Jabber. Maybe we will soon see a world where IM is like email : standardized and not centralized.

I was really happy until I saw that the Google Talk Jabber server is closed to other servers. It’s just like Gmail would only allow you to send and receive mails to and from a Gmail account!

Unacceptable.

Les spammeurs vont se faire bayeser !

This article is only intended for people who have or want to have a self-administrated mail server. Normal people can safely ignore this and read something else.

You have set a mail server on a Debian/Ubuntu box and you are proud of it. This is fine. You followed some tutorials and have a working SpamAssassin integration. Fine ! But there is still a problem : most spam emails are not considered as spam because they are beneath the 5.0 threshold. You thought about lowering the threshold but you had too many false-positive, especially from your hotmail/yahoo friends. So, we will polish a bit your SA installation and add some cool anti-spam stuffs.
