Comparison of Mail Servers

This is a comparison of mail servers: mail transfer agents, mail delivery agents, and other computer software which provide e-mail services.


Linux based mail servers are built using a number of components due to the fact a Linux environment is by default a multi-user operating system. When you deploy a Linux server it already has internal mail. To allow this server to send external emails you need a MTA (Mail Transfer Agent) such a sendmail, postfix and exim. If you wish users to not have direct access to the server and have to physical login to read there emails, then you need to give those users access to the emails received by the MTA, then you install an additional service like Dovecote or UW IMAP which provide the POP and IMAP services for your mail server.

Famous quotes containing the words comparison of, comparison and/or mail:

    We teach boys to be such men as we are. We do not teach them to aspire to be all they can. We do not give them a training as if we believed in their noble nature. We scarce educate their bodies. We do not train the eye and the hand. We exercise their understandings to the apprehension and comparison of some facts, to a skill in numbers, in words; we aim to make accountants, attorneys, engineers; but not to make able, earnest, great- hearted men.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Away with the cant of “Measures, not men!”Mthe idle supposition that it is the harness and not the horses that draw the chariot along. No, Sir, if the comparison must be made, if the distinction must be taken, men are everything, measures comparatively nothing.
    George Canning (1770–1827)

    Always polite, fastidiously dressed in a linen duster and mask, he used to leave behind facetious rhymes signed “Black Bart, Po—8,” in mail and express boxes after he had finished rifling them.
    —For the State of California, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
