Since you asked: I find it unwise to use PHP at all on FreedomBox (since 
FreedomBox by definition means there will be no system administrator to 
monitor and intervene when (not if) yet another weakness in either the 
PHP engine itself or some code written in that language is abused.

I find it interesting to explore running Mail on the box - without PHP.  
A non-PHP web-client available in Debian is Cider Webmail.

A challenge is how to handle spam fully automated (again: It is a 
Freedombox so you have to assume no sysadmin is available).
