Re: Mail Server

You did not mention any requirements to your prospective mail server. How many users, how many domains, what protocols it should support, spam protecting options, etc.

From my experience I may recommend to look at hMailServer. It's free email server for Microsoft Windows. It's very stable and you can make it secure. My clients always connect to this server using SSL. It 's very flexible and you may set configuration for supporting multiple domains, accounts, aliases, etc. as well as use a lot of different tools to protect users form potential incoming spam.

I've used hMailServer and you can use built-in anti-spam methods or use built-in links to clamav or spam assassin (install these separately and hMailServer will set up links).

I've gotten good results with the built-ins and can post screens of values I used to "rate" spam to get you started.

Why are they called "progressives" when their policies are from 1917?

You can get it all with hMailServer.

I don't use any additional anti-spam tools, except what is offered by hMailServer itself. In Settings | Anti-spam | DNS blacklists I've added two entries: zen.spamhaus.org and bl.spamcop.net. And in Settings | Anti-spam | SURBL servers I've added multi.surbl.org. That effectively allows me to block 99.9% spam. You may search hMailServer forum. They have a lot of good advises there.
