    Re: Which secure email server to use? (Score: 1)

    Definitely qmail. It’s extremely easy to configure, and extremely secure (no security holes found to this day). I believe it supports POP3, but I run it with Cyrus to support IMAP which works great (I’m not a big fan of POP3). For mail backup, I assume you’re referring to POP3/IMAP/mbox/Maildir mail backup, and not the SMTP spool backup as that’s very dynamic and useless to backup. In that case, yes it’s easy to backup, especially if you use Maildir to store your e-mails. I got Cyrus working with SSL by simply wrapping it through stunnel. For spam/virus protection, I can’t say, because I haven’t bothered with it, but I’m sure there are solutions out there for that as well.
