I like experimenting with new technology and I liked the idea of SIS. I still think it is but I really don’t need it for the small mail-server I’m running and it adds a lot of complexity to the setup.
There’s also AFAIK no tools to verify integrity or clean-up the SIS. So I’d like to go back to a simple storage solution.
