Guide Review - VisNetic MailServer 5.4.5 - Mail Server

VisNetic MailServer meets the foremost requirement for a mail server reliably: stability. By supporting secure TLS/SSL connections (enabled by default) and through internal as well as external virus scanners, VisNetic MailServer also meets the second requirement, security.

VisNetic MailServer is not a bad performer either. The memory file system in particular ensures speedy operation. With the large number of features and functionality (mailing lists, Web-based access and administration, dynamic IP address support, ODBC connectivity, and more) of VisNetic MailServer come a lot of options, and the configuration can be a bit confusing at first.

Once configured, VisNetic MailServer is a powerful, secure and reliable server.
