I tried it but it does not respect MX priorities so it is pretty
useless as a mail server, unfortunately. Then I tried to fix this but
the code was too complex for the little time I had available. So I
left an issue on Github, but the developer said he doesn't have time
to fix his code neither... So that's indeed a nice project but it is
not currently maintained.

FWIW, it has nothing to do with a mail client.
