Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Suse 9 should come with Open Exchange – It looks like MS Exchange to the client side.

    In SuSE Linux u may set up a email server easily. The requirements are : Software: MTA: Postfix; Pop/IMAP: Courier IMAP: Database: MySQL: Content Check: Amavisd-new: Anti-Spam: SpamAssassin: Anti-Virus: ClamAV: Authentication: Cyrus SASL: Encryption: TLS: WebMail: SquirrelMail or Roundcube. Other than above u may use Zimbra Collaboration Suite for email incoming & outgoing and squid for proxy. They r also free but limited facilities. These r the requirements to setup a mail server in SuSE Linux. Already I made a set up with these sws. I hope u may know the installation and configuration procedure. If u'll hv face probs regarding this u may q's 2 me.

    Hi Sapient, I've seen some flame wars over different mail transport agents (MTA), but all of them were nothing more than that - just flame wars... All major MTA (Sendmail and Postfix you mentioned, Exim, Qmail) are quite mature, scalable and feature-rich (no matter how they decided to implement those features). Feature-richness have a drawback - more features, more configuration options, so let not be fooled that an MTA is easyly configurable, while another one - not... I'd pay more attention to paraphernalia: e.g, you have already purchased commercial antivirus or antispam - into which MTA it will be most conveniently inserted (usually these products have install script which supports couple of MTAs), or something like this... BR, Petko A.
