thanks for all your feedback on this. To sum it up, I think this would be a good way to go:

* only approved members get an e-mail account
* this will be not a real mailbox with POP, IMAP and SMTP, but rather only a forwarder to an existing, external account * they get (with some sanity checks on the nickname, of course) * as a rule, we somewhere should write that these accounts can be revoked anytime and that there is no "service guarantee"

For representatives of TDF (SC, BoD, MC, ESC etc.), things are like now: They can request their e-mail address, and it will be a full mailbox with POP, IMAP and SMTP if required.

If you guys would like i have experience setting up email servers on Linux.

it would be an imaps dovecot server + postfix.

the way it will work is in order to have an email you have to have an
account on the server. also there will be web mail access, as well as
access via clients like Thunderbird etc.

Thanks a lot for the kind offer! I don't want to have real mailboxes, as this requires more infrastructure, has more liability issues and the like, so a simple forwarder should be enough. ;)
