Feedback on how/where QEMS is being used

Post by reverett » Mon Dec 27, 2010 7:41 pm

Hello,

Not sure if there is a proper way to ask this so I'll just ask. Is QEMS a business ready mail server? Is it stable enough to use as a mission critical mail server? If so, is there a limit to how many accounts it can handle without having stability issues?

My apologies for the awkward question but I don't know anyone who is using it and was hoping to get some feedback.

Thanks,

Randall

The server has been tested with more than 300 simultanious connections.
There are no limitations on the number of accounts other than the available amount of memory and harddisk space.

There are no known stability issues (otherwise we would have fixed them already). However I also do not know if anyone is using it in a business.
It was mainly designed as a personal mail server.

Hello,

That almost seems like a contradiction. On one hand you say it was meant to be a personal email server but it has been tested with 300 connections?

In your honest opinion, is QEMS mission critical worthy?

Thanks,

Why is that a contradiction?
We've tested it with 300+ connections to be sure that it is stable.

I think the server will run with any problem for an average of 100 connections. But there is no technical reason why it would not work with 1000 connections (for example). The only limitation is the processor power and available memory.

:-) 300 connections is a lot for a "personal" mail server.

For the price and from what I've seen in the eval it seems like a pretty solid product.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

If there are any users out there that have anything they can share, please do.

Sorry, I did have one other question. How are emails stored on the server (format)? For the need I am looking to address I don't think I would leave anything on the server (after login and download) but it would be nice to understand how emails are stored. Attachments as well?

Thanks!

The emails are stored in eml format. This is standard text based format.
You can open these files direclt in most email clients.
