It's worth noting that Ubuntu Server Edition includes an option to setup a
Presumably this Ubuntu mail server is setup from the installation menu or
with the installation of a single package.
I think it worthwhile assessing whether it's worth putting the effort into
maintaining any kind of Ubuntu option with the ISP-mail guide because of
the existence of the Ubuntu mail server.
Also I'd call into question whether it's worthwhile because very minor
differences between distributions can mean the difference between a
working and a non-working mail server after following the guide - is
someone going to keep track of the differences between Debian and Ubuntu
closely enough that they can guarantee that the guide will work on Ubuntu?
I believe such a near guarantee, that if you follow the guide precisely
then everything should work, is one of the best features of this guide.
