I would like to host a 'light-weight' mailserver on a raspberry pi and would like to host it on a rPi Zero-W. Specific objectives / requirements are:

  1. Send / Receive messages less a total of less than 10 messages (light-weight) per day.
  2. Send receive from using a .com domain
  3. Send / receive from Thunderbird mail client
  4. Nice to have: Secure Web UI
  5. Bonus round: webserver can serve-up static website, that allows customers to send email from web to contact.myFQDN.com

Mailserver setup instructions do not always address hardware requirements.

Is there any limitations that prevent the Zero-W from performing said tasks? Any lessons-learned from those who have setup a mailserver on the Zero-W is appreciated.

  • Is there any limitations that prevent the Zero-W from performing said tasks? no, there isn't – Jaromanda X Jul 28 at 3:40

I haven't used a RPi Zero-W with a light-weight mailserver but because the RasPi is nearly a general purpose computer there shouldn't be any limitations to use it except the performance. A RPi Zero-W is not the fastest but with your small requirements it should not be a problem.
