RUNNING A FREE 5 USER MAIL SERVER

Ability Mail Server has a free 5 user version, so for a home or small office sharing a small 1GB mailbox like that offered by BT, this could be ideal for you. It would also be good for a company that wants to make their email available “offline”. The setup would go something like this:

  1. Install the mail server and configure domain and users on a PC that is always ON
  2. Configure “POP3 retrieval” of incoming email from your ISP
  3. Configure your ISP as smarthost to deliver outgoing email
  4. Connect users to your local mail server, using IMAP (or POP3)

You could also use Mailstore Home to archive really old email into a fast, searchable database.
