YOUR OWN EMAIL SERVER $399+
Do you need an email server or tired of all the false promises or problems with you current ISP? The major advantage to in-house is that email from employee to employee does not go out to the web and back to an in-house email account all in plain text. If you are an accounting firm, any form of medical company or other service company that has lots of confidential material you may be violating many various federal laws every day without your own email server.
The Firewall's email server is a Postfix & Amavisd & Spam Assassin combo with Clam Antivirus:
Send Mail is most common taking 80% market share running on some form of Linux or UNIX (this primarily is that it was the first one and a major pain to work with.)
Qmail next at 9% (Gmail)
Postfix varies at around 7% (you know this as Yahoo Mail)
(The largest group of programmers in the world who basically make up what is know as "Open Source" use the same email server configuration as we produce. (freshmeat.net & sourceforge.net).
Procmail is next probably 1%.
About 15 others take up the 3%. (Microsoft Exchange has never been mentioned by name in any survey I found).
Cost for up to 30 users with antivirus & anti-spam including software and configuration approximately $599.
Do you have confidential material or messages you would like to get to your customers but because of some HIPAA regulation or "Privacy Act" can not do such. You can set up your customer with an email account and let them view it securely on you own server. (May require extra configuration costs.)
