hMailServer goes linux

Post by martin » 2004-07-16 22:29

Just did a test and hMailServer seems to work under Linux RedHat 9 with Wine. Connected to a MySQL-server running on the linux machine without any (big) problems. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone though. And I'm definitly not going to test releases on linux. :)

that's actually great news because I'll eventually be migrating to a full linux server as I continue to learn how all this great open source software works.

this is a good news, running hmail in linux environment sounds wonderful. especially w/ the open source community.

Well, if somone would really want it I would prefer to port those few parts of the code that arent linux-compatible (The performance when running under Wine is really bad..) But I don't think it would be wort the job. Linux world is filled with email servers..

I dont think it is necessarry as there are a billion open source emailservers for Linux and we can have more features if we only focus on one OS...lol

Yes! Linux is my platform of choice and I like it so much better than Windows. Especially the enormous choice of free, open source software. But sometimes you just cannot do without Windows, for all sorts of reasons, and it's nice to see that some open source also exists on this platform. I think hMailserver is the only serious free & open mail server for Windows to date. I would love to see hMailServer improve further and I'm even beginning to think how I could help. I'm not a real programmer though.

Glad to hear that.

There's no doubt that it will. :)
