hey everyone,
i planing to deploy a Mailserver on a proxmox host, and using the pmg as mx.
Severals Questions:

1. should i use an LXC or an KVM machine as Mail Server?

2. how should i deploy it securely in my infrastructure:
- putting the mailserver in the dmz and the pmg at a vps on the internet?
- putting the mailserver in the more secure subnet and the pmg in the dmz (and maybe a second pmg on vps)?

thanks for your helpfull thoughts and insights ;)
