Guide Review - MailEnable Standard 1.96 - Free Mail Server
Unfortunately, MailEnable Standard only provides SMTP and POP services, no IMAP and no Web-based access. MailEnable installs as a group of Windows services and is administered via a MMC snap-in, which can be a bit confusing at first, but generally makes the configuration a snap. It's easy to set up multiple domains, user accounts and mailing lists, and secure the server from being used as a spam relay.
All in all, MailEnable Standard is a simple, but very nice and potent mail server.
