My point poundsmack is that they suck you in with, "ITS FREE' and then they get bought by a new parent company and new suddenly version 7 come out and its not free anymore, its 99 bucks per user. So I will not invest time and effort to migrate me entire list of user and all the spam filters to any system that not complete open source so that I know it'll never go payware.

Incidentally this product looks like it has gone open source now so I will change my vote.

Wow, amazingly full featured for a free mail server. A good alternative to what I'm using.

@Aegis69

ok the "it's not open source, I won't touch it" movement needs to fade away. rating it a 1 for you not liking it's licence is also a little rediculous. so here is a rating based on the product.

Version 5 is going to be great. the beta is fast and the new features are a welcome upgrade. I am really looking forward to a stable 5.0 release. easily the rival (if not better) than phlymail ( http://phlymail.com/en/phlymail/lite/ ) and Mdaemon ( http://www.altn.com/Prod...ree-Windows-Mail-Server/ )

Now that its closed source, I will not touch it. Too easy for them to say, "New version 6, now Shareware. Get yours for only 69.95 per user!!"

To all the Opensource guys who work on this Mail Server... Excellent work, keeping this free will put alot of pressure on SBS2007

There are a few feautures you can add, but I need to go over all the functions before I make a comment on what.

Great Server Addition, great work, you guys deserve praise. Sorry I dont have any Awards to hand out... but you should get something...!!

Perfect!

Just make sure you back up regularly its configuration and its MySQL database - upon MySQL crash it may behave really weirdly.

Really a great program. I was trying to set up an Exchange Mail Server and I was losing days with guides and how-tos, then I found this program and after 10 minutes my mail server was up and running.

Using it with webmails like Horde/IMP or SquirrelMail makes this the perfect program for small businesses

This one is good, Mercury32 is still faster/better/more powerful but a lot harder to use.

I'm on XP, and I tried several free IMAP servers. hMailServer is the only one that completely worked; and not only does it work, but it works very well indeed. It is serving IMAP folders to Thunderbird via localhost faster than Thunderbird is delivering its own native-stored data.

Used in production since version 3.0. Performance in 3.0 wasn't too good but in 4.0 it has really shapen up. More stable than any other email server I've tried for Windows.

If you need a very reliable mail server try it!
We have used other mail servers (under linux and windows) and this is the best I have ever tried.

Vantorax: There was some problems with MySQL on the site that host the domain. (which is a 3:rd party company). I like the app..

Anybody else not being able to access their site or is it just me?

EDIT: Nevermind, it's working now. Will update my review later.

EDIT2: So far I'm really liking it. It's supports fetching email from another POP3 server which is a major feature for me. Excellent free server for a family who wants their own domain and mail server. And their support forum is quite nice.
