    email server requirements


    Hello everyone I am a newbie to Linux and have a project working on. Can someone please advise on the hardware requirements and maybe can help also with the other questions.

    1: The different types of Linux mail servers

    2: the comparison between them

    3: which one is best and why?

    4: types of email clients
    5: hardware and software requirements.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forums!

    You can find many of the various email server/client apps listed at these two websites:

    Linux App Finder | Helping find the Linux apps you need

    The table of equivalents / replacements / analogs of Windows software in Linux. (Official site of the table)

    Do a Google on all your queries.I did it for you but the problem is there are a lot of answers and the ones I am providing you with are the ones that comes first in the first page.
    a)For mail servers for linux :The Axigen Mail server.
    b)Types of email clients:This
    link will explain all in detail.
    c)Software and Hardware requirements for a linux server:Software requirements

    AXIGEN has the following minimal software requirements:

    * Linux OS, kernel 2.4/2.6
    * glibc version 2.2.93 or later
    * libstdc++ version 3.2 or later

    For BSD platforms requirements are as follows:

    * FreeBSD 5.4
    * NetBSD 3.0
    * OpenBSD 3.8 or OpenBSD 3.9

    For Solaris requirements are as follows:

    * Solaris 10

    For all platforms:

    * Internet Explorer 6 or later/ Firefox 2.0

    Hardware requirements

    AXIGEN has the following minimal hardware requirements:

    * Processor: x86, minimum frequency 300 MHz
    * RAM: 128 MB.
    * Available space on HDD: 50 MB free space for installation purposes and default configuration files. The actual space AXIGEN will take on your hard disk depends on the number of accounts, domains and mailboxes and the size of messages stored on the mail server.

    Comparisons: note the comparisions
    types of email clients?? list the names of different types

    Regards

    Julian

    This is beginning to sound like some kind of classwork assignment. If that's the case, you'll have to do all your research work yourself.

    That said, I've been using Linux for 7 years but couldn't tell you how many email servers there are. I'd have to just go online and and go about digging up the answers myself.

    Best of luck with your project.
