    I have another question while setting up my Synchronet instance to work as a Fido Node: Do I need to get, install and configure a "Frontend Mailer" and if so, which one would be the preferred when it comes to hosting Synchronet on an Ubuntu machine?

    Synchronet comes with a FidoNet mailer called BinkIt. I recommend you use it: https://wiki.synchro.net/howto:fidonet

    No, you do not need a Front End Mailer.

    Are you following any of the instructions on the Synchronet Wiki?

    Binkit is much easer to setup and use.
