ServerWatch: GL Mail Highly secure Linux e-mail server

(Other stories by M.A. Dockter)
"It is becoming more and more common that when an e-mail server goes down, an enterprise's entire communication infrastructure goes down. With many places using e-mail as their "official" means of communication, it's no huge leap to realize that when the mail servers go down, communication stops dead in its tracks. In some cases some people actually don't know what to do and have no other means of communication. One could go so far as to say that e-mail has brought the world into a new era of easy-to-use and instant communication between two people in the next cubicle, country, or continent. However, this instant communication carries with it the drawback of needing high availability to keep a business viable.

With such a high demand placed on the uptime of the e-mail server, it is no wonder that many IT decision makers are turning to the Unix platform to run their mail server software, since it is known to have a higher percentage of uptime in the field.

As with any Unix-type software package, GLMail from Gordano offers considerable advantages in security and stability that set it apart from other mail servers. GLMail runs on many different distributions of Linux; there are even versions of the software for Win32 and Solaris machines. GLMail also supports the majority of standard e-mail and support protocols in existence today."
