The most daunting thing for me about joining Mastodon/Fediverse was picking an instance.

Having joined one, a RL metaphor emerges for me: "it's like picking an apartment building."

You need to evaluate the management. Do they respect tenant rights? Is the desk clerk skeevy?

Do you want to live in a big impersonal complex? Or a little boarding house, where people share a lot and have house parties? You can even be a "home owner" and run your own instance (pay the bills, fix the plumbing).

Oh and some tracking for what is left in Imap can be found at :)
An SMTP overview is going to follow.

All in all this will take quite some time to implement especially as I do this between university and work in my free time.

However I would love if people could take a look, ask questions, maybe give it a star or even engage with me further on this.

You can find the repository over at and Chat with me at on matrix.

Any boosts would be highly appreciated! 💙

I recently started to work on a single binary mail server ( and ) it intentionaly doesn't do all the organisations stuff like ldap as it focuses on personal setups. I am currently working on implementing Imap4rev2 (rfc9051) and got most of the folder options up and running. The next goal is to display the received messages aka implementing the fetch command and some of the commands that are not yet covered.

After that I am aiming to also implement the SMTP part.

Heyho people of masto, people of and users :)

I may have a project for you if you like and think a Mailserver is too hard to set up. A warning up front though: this is neither complete or ready to use yet.


Hm so richtig hat Google play store mastodon noch nicht verstanden. Das ist ja mal absolut daneben.

Warum ich noch nicht mit Mastodon warm werde:

1. Clients. Man ist zwar beim iOS-Client von Twitter wilkürlichen Änderungen ausgesetzt, aber die UX ist einfach ungeschlagen gut. Das Interface ist flüssig und so snappy. Unglaublich gut leider.

Über Toot möchte ich nicht reden. Das ist absoluter mentaler Overload. Als hätte man eine Agentur, die vor 3 Tagen Microinteractionen gelernt hat, mit einer Tüte Koks übers Wochenende eingesperrt. Nein, niemals. 1/x

Einfach mal dem Großteil zurückfolgen. Wie sonst soll man neue Leute kennenlernen.

Auf Twitter umfasst meine Followerliste um die 600 Leute, da geht viel unter. Das Problem hab ich hier wohl eher weniger 😁

Check this out! Our LibreOffice Design community is now on Mastodon:

A new #XEP has been published recently:

Ein #Hilfe Ruf an alle im #Lehrerzimmer

Unsere #schule hat Android Tablets bekommen und ich soll helfen, dafür die passenden Apps für SchülerInnen aber auch LehrerInnen zu finden.

Welche Apps sind bei euch im Sekundarschulbereich im Einsatz und wie gut haltet ihr die?

Bitte auch ReTrööt

Wow, after 25 years of Unix experience, I learned that you can filter output in #less.

Press ampersand (&) and enter a regex to show only lines matching the regex.

Press ampersand (&) and then exclamation mark (!) to apply an inverse filter.
