I'm looking at upgrading my mail server and would like to hear some suggestions from experienced members...
I refuse to look at Microsoft Exchange Server (read: Microsoft Ripoff) because screw them.
I've used Mdaemon on two of our domains for over a decade, and it works great - but they're quite expensive at $ 2000 for 50 users and Outlook connect
for 3 years.
I've used Kerio Connect on another domain, but it doesn't have quite the functionality I'd like. And at $1815 for 50 users a year it isn't exactly
What I need is the ability to run 3 different domains' mail delivery (for a total of +/- 50 users). POP3/IMAP/SMTP functionality. Remote accessibility
(i.e. access to your mailbox via a browser). Mail lists. Rules configurability such as attachments allowed/attachment sizes/white lists/black lists
etc. If configurability can be per user - even better. Mailbox forwarding. Out-of-office. Spam filter would be nice. A ticketing system would be a
great bonus. Easy to administrate/set up. Back up/mail recovery and 100% logging is essential... Outlook interaction/functionality would be a nice to
have but not important.
I know there are "free" or open source options out there, but the software need to run on a MS 2012 server. And my knowledge of Linux/Unix.
I've seen "SmarterMail" which seems like a good option? At $500 a year...
Then there's hMailServer but I'm not sure it's got all the functionality I need without add-ons... The price of $0 a year is very tempting
What say you?
