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:

    When we reflect on our past sentiments and affections, our thought is a faithful mirror, and copies its objects truly; but the colours which it employs are faint and dull, in comparison of those in which our original perceptions were clothed.
    David Hume (1711–1776)

    The comparison between Coleridge and Johnson is obvious in so far as each held sway chiefly by the power of his tongue. The difference between their methods is so marked that it is tempting, but also unnecessary, to judge one to be inferior to the other. Johnson was robust, combative, and concrete; Coleridge was the opposite. The contrast was perhaps in his mind when he said of Johnson: “his bow-wow manner must have had a good deal to do with the effect produced.”
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    We grew up founding our dreams on the infinite promise of American advertising. I still believe that one can learn to play the piano by mail and that mud will give you a perfect complexion.
    Zelda Fitzgerald (1900–1948)
