    Just had a look at the "goto"s introduced by the patch. They're fine, following your typical "goto cleanup"/"goto failed" idiom. A lot of C code needs this kind of goto for a clean and readable structure, possible alternatives are much worse.

    I don't think it's that simple. My understanding is that the filtering rules are evaluated only if there is no matching state entry. And from what pf.conf tells, such states are created automatically from translation aka NAT rules: TRANSLATION...

    World and kernel should always match up. When you start mix and matching kernel versions with userland versions then you could potentially fall in the same trap. Which is why this sort of set up isn't supported, kernel and world should always...

    I never used a GUI mail client, except for testing out of curiosity. And yes, from time to time do I use Web-Mail, some mails are so corrupted with html-tagging, that there is no alternative. What you call a strength is no strength, but normal...

    It seems there were several attempts in Neomutt to support this, see for example https://github.com/neomutt/neomutt/issues/2004 The reason I don't really care is that my IMAP is on my LAN anyways. But obviously some would consider it a valuable...

    Mjölnir replied to the thread I don't know what's going on.
    OT, but I'd like to comment on this: IMHO a major reason for this is the lack of maintainers. Far too many desktop ports do not even have one; i.e. the ports' (linux'ish) defaults apply with some minimal, general FreeBSD patches. I.e...

    The reason I prefer my solution is that I have all the mail storage internal. My cheap VPS doesn't even offer a simple backup solution, and I also want to easily delete it, maybe rent a different one, without losing anything.

    When they understand what bloat is, then their comments can mean something. As long as the structure is there, more users can't harm the system. The base system of FreeBSD is really good. For ports, there needs to be a best practices, which is...

    To be fair, that isn't a bad solution. Though I would still like to free up the VPS for more important things than email passing. Such as torrents ;) For a while I ran an incoming-only SMTP/IMAP server on my internal home server, and then just...

    Agreed. I believe some of those proxies actually end up working by scraping web output which makes me shudder a bit. Well this is kind of the issue preventing us from hosting our own on our own physical servers (from home anyway). I personally...

    IPv6 itself is not complicated, but its numerical representation is rather cryptic and scary. Also, it's (rather) new. Hence less people are willing to deep dive into subject, thus there's less written article/content on the internet.

    Years ago, there was a self-proclaimed security expert, who accused Microsoft of implementing a Backdoor into the WMF. A few days later, he got hosed. It was a public embracement. He was an early example/product of "self-esteem movement".

    No it is not. Does Firefox have malware in it? No. Look elsewhere. Many of us run Firefox as our daily driver with no such issues. The problem is neither Firefox or FreeBSD.

    We have an idiom for this: "Da staunt der Laie und der Fachmann wundert sich". Loosely translated: "You must be pulling my leg!". Literally it would be: "The layman marvels and the expert is surprised".

    No, you still need a firewall. With IPv4, most households or small organizations are NATed, meaning inside hosts are not reachable from the outside. With IPv6, if you get a large enough address range, by default all your inside hosts are suddenly...
