RFC Standards Compliant "Free IMAP Mail Server"!

We take RFC compliance seriously. For example unlike many of our competitors our IMAP mail server module passes the rigourous unofficial IMAP test suite This means it's more likely to work seamlessly with multiple email clients (IPhones, Android etc...) without 'odd' behaviour.

Free Linux Mail Server or Free Windows Mail Server?

SurgeMail was designed to run on both Windows and Linux from day one. It is not a Linux product ported to Windows or visa versa, so it works properly in each environment, and you can choose at any time to move from one platform to the other (at no cost) or even run a mirrored cluster of both at once. This flexibility is very valuable as your company policies change you can maintain your email system without painful migrations/conversions. Our goal is to provide the best "free mailserver for linux or windows".

High Performance Free POP3 Mail Server

SurgeMail's POP3 mail server module is fast, RFC compliant, and totally reliable. And works with the IMAP mail server allowing users to seemlessly switch between IMAP and POP3 or even use both at once. Many normal servers cannot permit both protocols to be used at once! (Both IMAP and POP3 modules are standard with all SurgeMail versions)

Windows/Linux Free SMTP Server Software

The heart of your mail server is the SMTP protocol, SurgeMail's smtp module is designed to handle Incoming Email, Spam, Hackers and Local Users all at once. Many unique features are used to throttle spammers, detect and block hacking attempts, reject the bulk of spam and still accept all normal incoming email quickly and efficiently.

What is a "Secure Mail Server"?

  • Designed for security from the ground up, so it can't be exploited as a back door into your computer network.
  • Suports SSL protocol for login and smtp so messages and passwords are encrypted at all times and not visibly floating around on the internet for anyone to see/steal (as is common with most servers)
  • Includes optional 'SurgeVault' Encryption module for 'end to end' encryption
  • SurgeMails unique 'mirror' feature allows live replication of your configuration and mailboxes, this feature will save you your job! A nightly backup is just not a workable solution for your mail system when the most valuable data on your mail server is all 'new and unread' email that arrived within the last day!

RFC Standards Compliant "IMAP Mail Server"!

We take RFC compliance seriously. For example unlike many of our competitors our IMAP mail server module passes the rigourous unofficial IMAP test suite This means it's more likely to work seamlessly with multiple email clients (IPhones, Android etc...) without 'odd' behaviour.

Groupware support

Optional calendar, file sharing, instant messaging, forum, blogs and chat room modules.

Wow! surgemail ROCKS!!! :) I have setup surgemail as a bastion host for 5 of our primary domains. We tried every other mail server out there trying to find something that works and that could keep up with our mail throughput.

I'm BLOWN AWAY by just how good Surgemail is! It is processing hundreds of thousands of messages per day and scanning every one for viruses with RAV and giving each one a SmiteCRC spamdetect score. The dual PIII 1Ghz server is only using 1-5% CPU with spikes to 20-30% and only 150MB out of 2GB!!! Amazing.

If you are looking for a reliable and FAST mail server, BUY SURGEMAIL!
