CommuniGate Pro

CommuniGate Pro

CommuniGate Pro is a step up in terms of cost – it starts at $499 (~£310) for up to 50 users and five mailing lists. But it offers a working Web interface, so that remote users can log in via the Web from anywhere, as well as just about any forwarding or distribution option you could possibly want. It also runs on more than 30 different computing platforms, so it would be difficult to find a system that couldn't run it.

VPOP3

VPOP3

VPOP3, a UK product from Paul Smith Computer Services, comes in two main versions: standard and Enterprise. The main difference between the two is that the Enterprise version accepts plug-ins that enable virus-scanning, content filtering and SMS messaging. In addition, the Enterprise version supports real-time blacklist checking to minimise spam, as well as IMAP4 and ODBC. Both are downloadable in 30-day trial versions. There’s also a simplified Home version with reduced business functionality (no listserver, external auto-responders, LAN forwarding and so on).

MailGate

MailGate

MailGate is a well priced mail server that comes with plenty of extensions, which are included in the corporate version. But it lacks Web-based access, and the Explorer-style interface could be clearer.

This attractively priced mail server scales from home users to enterprises, and is reasonably easy to set up and administer.

IRCXpro Server

IRCXpro Server

Setting up your own IRC server sounds like a geeky thing to do, but in fact there are good reasons why a small business or an individual who collaborates on projects might want to do so. In contrast to teleconferencing, you can easily tell who is speaking and log what they say for later review. It’s also extremely low-cost and accessible to even the slowest computers and Internet connections – or for that matter a mobile phone or handheld user.
