    Qmail as a replacement for M$ Exchange server


    First off, I appologize for placing this post into the sendmail section.

    I want to replace our Exchange server with qmail on an extra Linux box here in our office. Is there anything I need to be made aware of before attempting this? I've purchased 'The qmail Handbook' by Dave Sill.

    I'll need to setup a POP3 as well so that our employees can access their mail via Outlook.

    TIA!

    I am pretty sure qmail has a pop3 server. I is very easy to setup so you shouldn't have any problems with it. I set it up a couple years ago and it didn't take very long at all. I think its a great mail server for low-mid traffic servers. I am not sure how much traffic you get but at my previous job I setup exim smtp with courier pop3/imap and both used a mysql backend which worked great.

    I don't know your employees requirements, but I advice you to at least consider IMAP instead of POP3 (or using both).
