Re: Which mail server?

Dovecot is a lot faster than courier, no need to bench, you can even
feel it using a webmail.
I've installed qmail, dovecot, vpopmail, clamav, spamassain for mail
sending and receiving on a RH EL4 server.
Tomorrow I'll setup a new Debian server and move mail server on that
Dovecot IMAP works perfect with Outlook, but it doesn't support ACL.
Courier has problems with Outlook. I never tried Cyrus before but it
supports ACL. Is there known Outlook issues with Dovecot?
Is qmail is good enough or do I have to choose postfix or exim? Which
one and why?
Qmail is pretty good, but the stock qmail-src package given by Debian is
IMHO not enough to have a good setup. I suggest that you have a look to
qmail-spp or qmail-rocks package and compile from source. Postfix has
the good advantage to be available as binary with all needed options.
Something like that will give you a working system very fast:
apt-get remove exim4 exim4-base exim4-config exim4-daemon-light
nfs-common portmap pidentd pcmcia-cs pppoe pppoeconf ppp pppconfig pidentd
apt-get install postfix postfix-mysql postfix-tls sasl2-bin libsasl2
libsasl2-modules mlmmj courier-authmysql courier-imap courier-pop
The only real problem I found with Dovecot is that I found no way of
doing traffic accounting with it (it doesn't even log it).
