Location: Clinton Township, Michigan shows you some possible ways to create an Email server. ... il_servers provides you background on what an Email server is, and the various components used in an Email system.

Several of the articles I have seen recommend the use of "Postfix" as the foundational server component used to construct an Email server, but there are plenty of other alternatives available as well.

Searching using (though Google or any other search engine will also provide suggestions), you can find numerous articles, both recent and several years old, each of which provide similar suggestions.

Another site like ours, which has been around for many years, had someone asking about a similar thing, and the answers mostly asked the user what exactly they wanted to do, but a few people did recommend Zimbra.
Many others, as I noted above, mention Postfix.

See the discussion at Linux Questions for their viewpoint as well before deciding what you want to do: ... 175474275/

A similar discussion was held here: ... erver.html -

Notice that for the older notes regarding servers, some approaches, which STILL work, but more than likely require more knowledge and configuration are mentioned, such as "sendmail", which is one of the original mail configuration tools that was available even 20-25 years ago. Sendmail is probably not the easiest way to go these days, but more than likely, it would still work.

Zimbra is going to provide you with a pretty complete solution, but it may have both free and non-free components, depending on exactly which pieces of Zimbra you'd consider.

Postfix is probably a fairly easy way to go, but regardless of what you choose, in this day and age you want to give a lot of consideration to privacy, security, and integrity. The old solutions won't have all of that baked in; you'll definitely have to add virtually all of the protective mechanisms yourself. Some of the newest solutions may take care of some - or even all of it, but some of those may come at a cost, so you may have to weigh all of these factors before choosing the solution that works best for your needs.

Hopefully the references I've provided will at least allow you to research this and choose the approach which best matches your intended use, your skill level, time, exposure to risk, and any other considerations needed.
