Capture all sent mail locally with Postfix

For development, you don't want any e-mail sent to the outside world, but you do want to be able to see all mail your sites or application try to send. Here is a configuration of Postfix to do that.

The trick is to BCC everything to a local user, and discard without error any other sending.

This is based on several guides and Q&As online but well, none of them worked for me, so here's exactly what i did (minus all the missteps).

Using Drush 3.1 by installing it in your local user directory

The version of drush in Debian is way behind. Drush 3.1 has been out for a month, Drush reached stable 3.0 on April 23.

Stefan was unsympathetic:

That does not mean the package is ready. What the upstream authors consider stable and the Debian community considers stable might be different things, too. Quality is Debian's top priority not up to date software. In addition to that it will only get into the next stable distro and maybe into the backports repository. In that case we get the upgrade automatically.

Putting a local project maintained in git on a server as a central repository

Note: The agaric git repository is not public, but this approach will work on your own server.

Stefan explained: copy your folders to your home dir on the server, cd to /srv/git and then run git clone --bare folder folder.git

cd ~
scp -r customhome

On the server:

ben@server:/srv/git/agaric$ git clone --bare ~/customhome customhome.git

Initialized empty Git repository in /srv/git/agaric/customhome.git/

And don't forget!
