    probably qmail is the lightest and most secure. Postfix is a little more powerful, and sendmail is chock full of options, but if you just need to send a bazillion e-mails, qmail should do the trick.

    Qmail Mail Server in Linux

    Hi,
    I am interested in using Qmail Mail server in Linux. I was satisfied with the Qmail features. I would like to send around 100k mails(birthday cards, Thanksgiving cards,etc... ) to our clients per day. Currently I am using Windows 2000 platform and running IIS Server and our mails are send from IMailer Server.
    At present i would like to send mails from a linux OS using Qmail Mail Server and the applications are being runned in a Windows 2000 platform and runnning IIS Server.
    I would like to know whether Qmail Mail Server in linux supports(compacts with) IIS Server runnning in Win 2000 for processing mails and sending?
    If so i would like to know how could i configure my Win System and Linux System to send 100k mails per day?

    I hope the above requirements mentioned are clear and kindky reply to me a soon as poosible.

    I'm not sure I entirely understand the question... are you trying to have the 2 servers work in tandem? or just use a smtp compatable client from the MS machine send them via qmail?

    Qmail Mail Server in Linux

    Yes I need 2 servers working in tandem. One for application being run on IIS Server in Windows 2000 OS and another for sending mails in Linux platform using Qmail Mail Server.

    umm I'm not a spammer either (honest!) but I need a similar sort of thing. Basically, I am a linux virgin, but need to set up a linux dedicated server with my webhost so that I can send out newsletters to registered members of my site, http://www.companiesthatblowgoats.com. My webhost, fasthosts, has a limit of on the number of emails that can be sent to no more than 50 within a 15 minute period.

    My site is currently made using asp.net [ducks out the way of several flying knives] and I want to set up a linux smtp server to relay the newsletters on to the distribution list. I'll have to use CDOSYS to generate the emails using the addresses from the database, and then point to the smtp server using objMessage.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = "smtp.myserver.com" or something similar. I can get that far, but I'm not sure how to proceed from there. The linux box will be running red hat linux, but I dont know how to configure the smtp on it, or how to lock the relay down to prevent nasty spammers from using it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
