The Courier mail transfer agent (MTA) is an integrated mail/groupware server based on open commodity protocols such as ESMTP, IMAP, POP3, LDAP, SSL, and HTTP. Courier provides ESMTP, IMAP, POP3, Webmail, and mailing list services within a single consistent framework. Individual components can be enabled or disabled at will. Courier implements basic Web-based calendaring and scheduling services integrated in the Webmail module.
Kolab is a groupware system that provides a comprehensive and flexible solution for workgroups. Email, contacts, and group calendars can be managed via the Web, Windows/Outlook, and Linux/KDE. It supports offline synchronization and full seamless support of mixed client environments because the Kolab-XML storage format is fully open and avoids MAPI/TNEF.
Citadel is an advanced messaging and collaboration system for groupware and BBS applications. Users can connect to Citadel using any telnet, WWW, or client software. Among the features supported are public and private message bases (rooms), electronic mail, real-time chat, paging, shared calendaring, address books, mailing lists, and more. Unlike other collaboration servers, Citadel provides its own data stores and is therefore extremely easy to install; you don't have to "bring your own" email and database because they're built in. The server is multithreaded and scalable. In addition, SMTP, IMAP, and POP3 servers are built-in for easy connection to Internet mail. Citadel is both robust and mature; it has been in production since 1987.
IndiMail is a messaging platform built using qmail and other messaging software. IndiMail has the ability to distribute the users in a domain across multiple hosts. IndiMail has multiple queues (called a queue collection), which can achiever very high concurrencies. The system IDs and configuration files used by IndiMail are all configurable through a set of environment variables, allowing you to customize IndiMail the way you want. IndiMail does not use hard-coded uid/gid in the executables, which makes it easy to distribute a binary package. IndiMail has features that any modern email server should have: SMTP, QMQP, QMTP, IMAP, POP3, DKIM, BATV, greylisting, filtering capability, and spam/virus control.
vpopmail (vchkpw) is a collection of programs and a library to automate the creation and maintenance of virtual domain email configurations for qmail installations using either a single UID/GID or any valid UID/GID in /etc/passwd with a home directory. Features are provided in the library for other applications which need to maintain virtual domain email accounts. It supports named or IP-based domains. It works with vqadmin, qmailadmin, vqregister, sqwebmail, and courier-imap. It supports MySQL, Sybase, Oracle, LDAP, and file-based (DJB constant database) authentication. It supports SMTP authentication combined with the qmail-smtp-auth patch. It supports user quotas and roaming users (SMTP relay after POP authentication).
