Application Usage

Building your own MTA from the python-slimta building blocks is great, but it’s not for everyone. This guide walks you through setting up and configuring the slimta application, which glues together all the pieces with easy-to-use configuration files.

The configuration files are YAML files interpreted with the PyYAML library, which provides a great combination of convenience and readability. Config data is organized with keys (mappings) and lists, with extra features like file inclusion. The included sample configs use this feature, as a reference.
