Email Server

From: Stephen Haywood 
------------------------------------------------------
Are there any good, easy to use/setup, email servers for Linux? I'm willing
to pay for the software. I know I can setup a postfix server and screw
around with the command line but I don't want to.

=============================================================== From: David White ------------------------------------------------------ I know Zimbra has most of their stuff scripted out. It's a memory hog, though. On Thu, Jul 18, 2013 at 4:49 PM, Alex Smith (K4RNT) wrote:

=============================================================== From: Rod-Lists ------------------------------------------------------ what about dovecot? http://www.dovecot.org/ ----- Original Message -----

=============================================================== From: David White ------------------------------------------------------ Dovecot is a POP3 / IMAP server, not an MTA (mail server). I use Dovecot, but you can't just run a mail server with Dovecot. You need a MTA too. :)

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Once Courier is setup, it has a web admin tool that takes care of typical use and configuration. www.courier-mta.org Running a mailserver is not trivial. Consider why you are going to be responsible for this pain... Outsourced mail is one of the best deals on the 'net... And yes, I run my own mailserver for about 50 domains..

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ I am using Exim as my MTA and Dovecot for POP3, IMAP and as my MDA. I am supporting 60 domains on one machine. I haven't had any issues with Exim for nearly 3 years with all 60 domains. I actually dont remember having to do anything to the mail services for over 3 years. It just works, and its pretty hands off. Heres a screenshot of my most current server stats: https://copy.com/thumbs

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ No issues.. ? Do you not have any (non-geek) Lusers ? The issues typically aren't technical, it's the: "Why didn't me 39gb email to 'bob' fail?" What's his email address? Luser: Well, I just type in 'bob'. What's the error message? Luser: I dunnu, I deleted it. etc.. etc..

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ The only thing I can remember doing for my users is one of them was needing help setting up a mailing list. They had never done one before. I use MajorDomo for my mailing list software. So I spent a few minutes going over the basic useage of it, and then helped them create a pretty huge mail list. We imported several thousand (I think thousands) email addressees using a .csv and sent a test email.

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ inquiring minds want to know why you want to move away from gmail=0A=0ABase= d on your screen name, I'm guessing its for security/privacy reasons?=0A=0A= or is it because of something else, maybe some limitation of service...=C2= =A0 or sucky support...=C2=A0 or...=C2=A0 ?=0A=0A=0A=0A=0A=0A

=============================================================== From: Stephen Haywood ------------------------------------------------------ Gmail is awesome but our government doesn't seem to recognize the 4th Amendment when using a third-party host. Besides that the recent confirmation of how far the NSA goes to get info has caused me to rethink my online presence. I've started using Tor recently and I've finally created a PGP key. Now I want to move email in house to make it harder for gov to get their hands on it without a warrant. Feel free to call me paranoid, if you want. One day, I'll completely walk away from all this technology but until then I want to make myself feel a little better. -- Stephen Haywood Owner, ASG Consulting CISSP, GSEC, OSCP T: @averagesecguy W: averagesecurityguy.info On Fri, Jul 19, 2013 at 10:16 AM, Ed King wrote= :

=============================================================== From: Dan Lyke ------------------------------------------------------ Aside from Steven's reason, I'd like to go back to a different spam filtering system. I *really* liked bogofilter running on my laptop, but that didn't handle spam that got sent to one mailing list (because a subscriber or two there runs Windows and at some point their machine was compromised and that address got added to a gazillion spam servers). So I need to get back to a system where I have Bogofilter running on a server and am doing my own mail, 'cause the false positive system on Google's spam filtering is weird and inconsistent. Dan

=============================================================== From: Sudo Bash ------------------------------------------------------ Postfix / dovecot for flexibility and stability...

=============================================================== From: Stephen Haywood ------------------------------------------------------ iRedMail looks like it is exactly what I want. Now to get a server and a static IP. -- Stephen Haywood Owner, ASG Consulting CISSP, GSEC, OSCP T: @averagesecguy W: averagesecurityguy.info
