Download page redirects to demo page. There seems to be no download, only a very expensive (ANNUAL) purchase.

It seems AtMail has now gone open source.

Our evaluation tests of various Webmail apps

We have evaluated an extensive set of Webmail applications on behalf of our ISP client.

The tests involved using IMP, Roundcube, Squirelmail and @Mail.

Overall @Mail stood out from the crowd for the following reasons:

* Improved user-interface over the competition. An advanced interface for IE/Firefox ( using XUL ) and a lightweight Ajax interface are included. The interfaces are very well polished

Other clients like IMP, Squirelmail have a really bad end user interface/experience. Products like Roundcube are very lightweight and not as feature rich

* Outlook sync support - This was a nice plugin, users can sync addressbook/calendar data between a desktop client and Webmail

* Good Groupware support - Nice Calendar, Task, and shared contact support. Also has free/busy support which the competition is lacking or they are poorly implemented

* Wireless interface and SMS support - Also a nice plugin that our end users enjoy, which the other products don't have up to scratch

In summary there are good quality Webmail applications out there, and for our needs @Mail fit the pie best

Roundcube -

While not as fully featured as @mail, and still in its infancy, Roundcube has to be doing well, since @mail founders are looking to get rid of Roundcube so they can have 1 less OS competitor :)

Get your facts straight

As the authors of @Mail we have to disagree with your false acusations.

Firstly, @Mail does work under Suse Linux. The dependencies of the software are Apache, perl , gcc and mysql. If these are available under your OS the software can be installed.

Secondaly, the accusations of our technical team resetting root passwords, opening firewalls and exposing systems to hackers via SSH and Webmin are completely wrong. You should get your facts straight before you bad mouth a company without any backing to your claims.

Thirdly, we provide an online demo, download evaluation and a 30-day refund policy on the software. So you had plenty of opportunities to evaluate the software.

Another Warning
Atmail may work on some systems, as noted above. But it does not and cannot be made to work on a number of Linux systems, including SuSE SLES.<br /><br />Moreover, the company will not issue a refund for any reason; and if you make the mistake of paying them to do the install, as I did, they will reset your firewall to give themselves permanent access, give themselves Root User access and, if they know you system cannot be made to work, will then expose it to hackers with SSH and Webmin. If you run Webmin (Perl) do not even consider giving them access. <b>Be very careful with these folks! Only a fraud action gets their attention after they have your money.</b>

Would you be kind enough to share your gripes about atmail. We are considering it for our IMAP/SMTP/POP3 solution for 150K users.

I tried the demo on Solaris and could not make it to run. After installing Fedora Core4 on a HP DL360 it ran rather quickly.

Althought they need a MUCH better documentation to set it up. PLUS a much needed admin guide.

Does it uses the MySQL/Oracle for passwords only ? Or does it stores users email too?

Re: Unsatisfactory Demonstration of RDBMS Connectivity
We are using atmail as for web based email and need to offer pop accounts also. I would appreciate some advice. What pop/smtp server are you using ? How do you handle email relay?
