End of an era: today we changed all computer science e-mail addresses to forward to central mail addresses where a big exchange server does all the work. After years of running the e-mail service, including dealing with problems like viruses and spam it still feels weird. Almost all local delivery has been stopped, postfix just has a big list of aliases now.
A history for as far as I can deduce (most way before I worked there) :
UUCP mail with a telebit trailblazer modem
SMTP based mail, sendmail
Postfix (cs.uu.nl ran postfix before it was called postfix) with mboxes/imap
Postfix with maildir / imapssl
I'll still be running my own e-mail setup at home, based on sendmail, my personal choice in mailer. But that's a different story.
