Having search for a solution to replace an Exchange + AD system with an OpenSource solution for a while. Did look at Kerio, Zentyal, Kolab, Kopano, Zimbra and Sogo from their respective free/open version, and also made a deep investigation into the available documentations and forum contents.
So far the iRedmail packaging is the far best I've seen, and answers to almost every questions I come across can be found in the existing iRedMail documentation or on the forum site.
Since all modules are "standard" open source projects, it's easy to find more information for specific issues, like OpenLdap or Postfix elsewhere.
Once I tried the installation and got it up and running in an hour or so, I didn't bother to check the other test systems again. We have now started a project to migrate our Exchange server, and to use OpenLDAP instead of Active directory for our application servers (Gitlab, Confluence, Jira, etc).
Thanks for a really good product.
I was looking for a groupware solution that was using Postfix and Dovecot in the backend, since I wanted to get away from proprietary solutions. I had to be free of charge if I'm willing to do certain tasks myself, since it's only used for non-commercial purposes and my budget isn't big enough for anything costly.
I've been using Zarafa before, but since they changed their product to "Kopano" and won't provide *.deb-files anymore (and compiling from source isn't really documented at all), I first tried building my own solution using docker. It worked reasonably well, but lacked good user-management without tinkering a lot in SQL-databases myself.
After I installed SOGo as a front-end myself and researching some configuration specifics, I stumbled upon iRedMail, and it offers everything I need. So, I scratched my docker-solution and, since my server was pretty clean anyway, gave this a go.
Installation went smoothly and the customization options you have are perfect for me. Also, this software seems pretty actively maintained and has an active community around it, and that was also something I was looking for. Since it comes pre-packaged with SOGo for all my ActiveSync-needs out of the box, it was a perfect fit.
Thanks to ZhangHuangbin and team, well done and I'm looking forward to learning more about this package and keeping it up and running for a long time.
I was asked to answer this question, and i want to hear from you.
Why are you interested in iRedMail? write down your opinions below please
Easy and fast to deploy without pain?
(one of) the right way to build an open source mail server solution? Most components used in iRedMail are provided by Linux distributions officially. it means iRedMail users can get software update support as long time as the distribution itself.
Great customer support via forum? Installation, migration, intergration.
the project is being supported and actively worked on. @gscott187
have the full participation of the technical community and hence knowledge base benefits. @gscott187
It uses mainstream, tried and tested components. @gscott187
Obviously, all who are interested in good business should use email marketing. On our project - https://greatpaper.co.uk/ we also use e-marketing to ensure maximum engagement of our customers and get more orders, and iRedMail perfectly copes with these tasks. Thanks to the proper planning of our marketing companies, we achieve excellent results through email marketing
Good luck, Benjamin!
Fast, reliable, open, easy to deploy.
I'd buy a pro version if I could pay a monthly subscription. Pay $500 is too much for one shot.
Easy to deploy, with the trust that the package has everhting you need. Like a modern mailsystem.
dovecot and Postfix are pretty basic, like e-mail. Now a days you need much more then a basic mail system. There is to much other crap that is flying around the internet and it is hard to keep up if this is not your daily business.
Also it is pretty stable and there is a lot of information available because is all open source. iRedMail combines all the necessary open source programs.
This makes iRedMail pretty handy!
I've been wanting to try out iRedMail for awhile but didn't have the chance. When the chance finally came, iRedMail was the first thing I thought of. What I like about it so far:-
1. Streamlined installer. Run the installer, have a cup of coffee and it's ready.
2. Simple UI interface for managing email accounts.
3. Option to choose Apache or Nginx, I went with Nginx
4. Option to choose different backends, I went with MySQL
5. Supports FreeBSD! It's installed on a FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE 64bit VPS
Besides the entire email package of iRedMail, I also manage to run a couple of websites on it. Mainly Wordpress, a WhatsApp Click to Chat site and a Nucleus install. Took some thinkering but everything is working smoothly now.
Kudos to iRedMail devs for making it what it is today.
I wanted to setup my own Mail Server was a project at first but i have a homelab and wanted to setup my own Server running Ubuntu Server 16.04 in a VM.
1 Easy to setup although i have tried other methods.
2 UI looks great although i use Roundcube and a App on my phone called K9 Mail i create users via MariaDB.
3 Get to choose which Web Server to use i choose nginx.
4 Get to chose which database to use i went with MariaDB.
5 Comes with Spamassassin and ClaimAV which is great.
Its grate to deploy whether you're in a Business or a Homelab.
One thing i wlll mention tho is that to fix delayed mail you require to remove Greylisting in /opt/iredapd/settings.py.
Overall im happy to have my own Mail Server up and running. Great Project.
Happy Server Life.
iRedMail is really interesting because of it's great features such as easy implementation, faster and easier backups and a lot more...and thanks for all the reliable information in this thread that helps me a lot in writing my research paper and essay about new and great opensource mail..thanks again for this product...
is source code for iRedMail editable as it is opensource? can I change the iRedMail code like css, logo, html page, some js function or business logic by editing its source code?
I try to find its source code but it seems all packages are encrypted and binaries and deployment scripts are present as open source.
Please if you are aware of this, can you guide me on this.
Thanks in advance.
Mainly for this:
1) Easy and fast to deploy without pain? Yes its very fast
2) Full-featured? yes, i can apply all i need
3) Stable? I am a new user, but I will test with +600 users
