Ubuntu Full Email Stack
On Ubuntu Linux the ability to run a fast, efficient, and secure in-house email system is made relatively easy.
There is an out of the box installation that gets you very close and with a relatively small amount of configuration,
makes a nice robust email server suite. This is a nice way to be fully in control of your own internal company email without
paying monthly mailbox fees to an outside provider. Many public mail servers on the internet run Postfix.
- Postfix is a free and open-source mail transfer agent (MTA) that routes and delivers electronic mail.
- It is released under the IBM Public License 1.0 which is a free software license. Alternatively, starting with version 3.2.5, it is available under the Eclipse Public License 2.0 at the user's option.
- Originally written in 1997 by Wietse Venema at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in New York, and first released in December 1998, Postfix continues as of 2018 to be actively developed by its creator and other contributors. The software is also known by its former names VMailer and IBM Secure Mailer.
- In December 2017 in a study performed by E-Soft, Inc., approximately 33% of the publicly reachable mail-servers on the Internet ran Postfix.
Postfix on Ubuntu Servers offers:
- Fast and secure in-house email with unlimited mailboxes free of licensing costs.
- The ability to integrate with web based email clients like Roundcube.
- Easy configuration with POP3 and IMAP servers on Ubuntu.
- The ability to run multiple virtual domains.
- Easy integration with intrusion prevention systems like Fail-2-Ban
I would like the oportunity to help you on your next project.
