• Installing Mailpile on CentOS 6

    I've been meaning to play around with Mailpile since the beta was released back in September. Thanks to a bout of insomnia I finally found time, though it turns out that getting it up and running on CentOS 6 is initially something of a pain.

    This documentation details the steps required to install and run Mailpile on CentOS 6

    DISCLAIMER: For reasons I'll discuss in a separate post, at time of writing I'd only recommend following these steps if you want to test/play with Mailpile - Personally I don't feel at all comfortable with the idea of using Mailpile in production in it's current state.

  • Thoughts on Mailpile

    I was quite excited when Mailpile was released as a beta, and it made it onto my list of 'must have a play with'. Life being life though, I didn't get chance to give it a proper go until recently.

    Sadly, it was somewhat anti-climactic and I've been left feeling more than a little underwhelmed. Mailpile shows a lot of potential, but it's definitely not ready for production yet. 

    I ran my testing on a CentOS 6 VM, and in this post will summarise the good and the bad.
