Linux Distros - was: Bypass host from mailscanner

If your going to consider using Fedora 33, you might as well look at
CentOS 8 Stream.  It's a "just before it lands in RHEL 8" distro going
forward and will be a lot more stable that Fedora, which is the
"bleeding edge" in Red Hat land.  The flow going forward for the Red
Hat ecosystem is

Bleeding Edge -> Leading Edge -> Stable
Fedora -> CentOS Stream -> RHEL

I did the conversion from CentOS 8 to CentOS 8 Stream and there were
only about 400 packages updated.  You could consider CentOS 8 Stream as
"CentOS 8 + CentOS 8 Continuous Updates" with a "little extra" since
the stream versions are going to track the packages that land in the
next point release of RHEL.

Just my observation so far.  YMMV.

Hi all,

Sendmail, MailScanner and others are running nice on Slackware 14.2 - a
very stable (no systemd :) ) Linux distro.
I'm using Cyrus IMAP
If someone decide to try, be warned :) : this is like a LEGO. Most of 
things you must do yourself. is a good place for making packages
