The Axigen Mail Server

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

axigen-environment.jpgAlmost every large business, public school system, and individual has an email address, but using a free email from a random source may not be the best way to stay organized with your company or school. That is why companies and schools purchase mail servers to do the job for them. This way, only people that are in direct connection with the company or school may join, and there is much less opportunity for spam and viruses to infect the system.

Axigen is one of these personal mail servers which has just hit the market. It has been tested to accept emails from outside mail clients, as well as working with all of the major internet browsers. These tests have eliminated almost all of the major issues that may have made the program obsolete in the real world.

Now that Axigen has become better developed and ready to hit the streets, there are several different versions available. One of these versions is specifically for working with a Linux operating system. The other version is for use with any of the other large operating systems. Probably one of the greatest features of this program is the ability to work on any computer rather than being limited to one operating system or another.

Modeled after many of the older mail servers, this new Axigen version has started off on the right foot, and is expected to grow in popularity very quickly. As a mail server, Axigen has done a great job thus far of covering all of their bases. Of course, since this is a brand new program, there will surely be fixes that need to be taken care of. However, at this point in time, the program download is available to those who are interested in creating their own server. To some, the cost of downloading such a new program is a little bit high, but others believe that if the program continues to develop as well as it already has, the price is definitely worthwhile. Axigen is very similar to some of the other large mail servers and gives you almost all of the same capabilities, still at a competitive cost to the other available servers. Axigen is really making strides toward becoming a very popular mail server in the near future.

If you are interested in setting up your own mail server and trying out a fairly new program, check out Axigen.com and download the full version program today.
