Review: HmailServer.

What's HmailServer?

You might ask that after read this post title. HmailServer is a lightweight (I love light things :) ) yet powerful email server software. Link to the official website can already be found on My Links section. Well, there are so much to say for this cute program....

I have been using it for months, and rarely (read: never) get any problem with it. The program is stable, fast and user friendly. You don't need a long time to learn its interface.

Simple one, isn't it?

The one I like about Hmail is its ability to utilize spamhaus blacklist and clamwin as its external antivirus. Being like that, the installer is pretty small and doesn't take a long time to download. Also, you don't need to pay extra money because spamhaus and clamwin are both free to use. Clamwin itself doesn't have real time scanner, making it useless for regular usage. However, coupled with Hmail, you can get a pretty powerful combination, making Mdaemon seems pointless.

Hmail also provides log support. You can examine the log to see Hmail's activities because all of its actions are logged.

You don't need to worry about the hassle of backing up your email server. Hmail provides excellent backup service. It compresses everything you want, starting from the email accounts until the messages on the server themselves. This saves your precious time as well!

Overall, excellent and interesting software to use. I highly recommend it.

Score: 9/10
