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.

    But the best read naturalist who lends an entire and devout attention to truth, will see that there remains much to learn of his relation to the world, and that it is not to be learned by any addition or subtraction or other comparison of known quantities, but is arrived at by untaught sallies of the spirit, by a continual self-recovery, and by entire humility.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The difference between human vision and the image perceived by the faceted eye of an insect may be compared with the difference between a half-tone block made with the very finest screen and the corresponding picture as represented by the very coarse screening used in common newspaper pictorial reproduction. The same comparison holds good between the way Gogol saw things and the way average readers and average writers see things.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
