You have probably seen this already, but the Ubuntu postfix + cyrus
howto can be found here:
| I am looking at updating my server in the near future and think it's
| time to try out something else for email. Currently I'm running Zimbra
| in a VM and it's been more or less decent, except for some odd cases
| where it just stopped receiving messages (had to bump the services), and
| the fact that my ssl certificate has expired.
| I'm considering the latest version of Zimbra, but wanted to ask the
| opinion of the list.
| Here's my needs:
| - Multi domain (but few users / low volume)
| - IMAP/POP3 (of course)
| - Low maintenance
| - Anti-spam / virus (with auto learn and updates)
| - Multi-folder capable. (i.e. I want to be able to create sub folders
| under the Inbox and direct mail to the appropriate folder)
| - Sieve or some kind of server side filtering capabilities (with an easy
| Calendaring would be a nice to have, but not critical for my needs.
| I've tried Citadel in the past (1+ year ago) and didn't like it (lack of
| access to logs when things go wrong). I don't know what the current
| incarnation is like. I've tried Kolab and it needed a bit too much
| maintenance for my tastes (2.1 days I think it was...). I'm open to
| going low level with Postfix/exim/cyrus/courier/spamassasin/etc., but
| want a good how-to to follow where I can set things up once and more or
| less forget about it. Oh, and I'm looking for it to run on a Ubuntu
| server (though that isn't critical).
| My primary focus is low maintenance. I don't want to be wasting lots of
| time just to keep the server running and current. Everything else is
| more or less typical of a modern mail server, I think.. :)
| So, any recommendations / suggestions?
| (ps, I know this is somewhat of a loaded question... but I'm wearing my
| "business manager" hat right now.. not my techie hat...)
