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

Mail server software typically operates higher in the OSI model than at layer 3 (IP). So, the mail server should be agnostic or unaware of the IP stack running on the host system.

    Hi I can't see if Mailenable has IPv6 support. There are others around though, Sendmail supports IPv6 and also Exchange that comes with Windows Server 2008. Cheers, Silvia

    Hi I checked with Mailenable and got the following answer: "MailEnable supports IPv6 clients, but you will need to enable this through the administration program, as it is not enabled by default. Under each service there is a option .Allow IPv6 client connectivity. next to the IP address binding options." Sounds good, let me know when you tried if it works. While it is theoretically true that applications run on a higher level in the OSI model than IP, there are still many applications out there with dependencies on the IP layer and you can only find out, if you test them in an IPv6-only or dual-stack network. Have fun and let me know, Silvia
