    Good email server solution


    We are looking into Apache James to see if it serves our requirements. Wondering if someone can share an opinion on this. We want a SMTP, POP , IMAP server which has a webmail interface to manage emails. Is Apache James the best solution or is there a better email server out there that can manage all of these.

    We are also looking for a Shared calendar server on linux, any suggestions please.

    Thanks a lot for your time.

    u might try postfix or qmail (+webmail).
    configuration is not difficult and u can find doc anywhere. I use postfix as i dont need multiple domains on my server.
    my server = postfix, fetchmail, procmail + clamav/spamassassin

    I use sendmail I host multiple domains and was simple to setup. It comes preinstalled on almost every distro.
    That is what I use.
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    well, postfix is "sendmail compatible" to a certain extent and a good alternative.

    what other things do you run alongside sendmail? i am currently running qmail, with courier-imap, vpopmail, and squirrelmail. I quite like squirrelmail, does it work with sendmail or is there an alternative?

    squirrelmail works right out of the box with fedora/redhat. All I had to do is put the name and Ip in the squirrelmail.conf file.
    I run web apache with virtual domains, samba, pop3, imap, dns, smtp, you know the usual stuff.
