There are a number of IMAP servers available, have a look in
/usr/ports/mail. I prefer cyrus.

As to SMTP, there is sendmail as shipped with FreeBSD. Many people prefer
other systems: exim, postfix, qmail etc.

Hi all,

Looking for an alternative setup for ms exchange.. (primary mailserver
for ms clients) ..
I'm new the the .nix world and have been playing with freebsd 5.1. (i
like it ).
Id love an opensource groupware product but dont want anything like
phpgroupware or kroupware.

I want to acheive a "proper" email server, i think it will have to be
imap + smtp. so client pcs can store mail on the server. using ms
outlook or equivalent.
have done a bit of web research and currently reading a freebsd textbook
but i dont seem to be finding the "right" answers for my situation.

If anyone have done the same/similar thing or knows of a good resource
pool, please let me know...
