    Mail Server

    Ok guys, i'm basically after a free, easy to use stable mailserver that i can set up to get e-mail for the family on my main server and then they can use outlook to get their e-mail from the mail server. Basically exchange server is a bit over kill i think. Any ideas, prefebly one that is well supported and opensource, something along the lines of the excellent video lan client, but a mail server if u get what i mean.

    thanks

    The guys who wrote Pegasus IIRC do a Windows mail server. I used it about four years back, can't remember the name but I'm sure a google will find it. Supports IMAP too.

    You will want to use IIS 6 that come with 2k3 though as previous versions only have a SMTP server and no POP3 server.

    Winroute pro has a passable mail server. Its mailny a proxy server but has mail features. Piece of cake to set up too.

    I've been using this for a while now Linky it does loads more than just mail and it's free for the 5 user version. But to be honest it's not that expensive if you've got more than 5 clients

    What operating system? If it's Linux, qmail or postfix are the best. Avoid sendmail like the plague.
