Does anyone know of a mail server that works with the uniform server? Basically, I want something that will receive email sent to a domain pointed to my ip. Ideally, it would also allow pop3 and smtp access as well.

Try using the hMailServer over at http://www.hmailserver.com.

It is our main/recommended Mail Server here :) or at least by me :D

Install it and if it asks to install a new MySQL server say NO. Let it used the default MySQL server that comes with the Uniform Server. You know the variables, like username and password so everything should be easy. The MySQL port is 3306 if you do not know.. :)

If any error, reply here or at the hMaiServer Forum. The developer knows about our server and also i talked to him once :D

You can set php to use SMTP, or you can download small/mini sendmail.

It will port the sendmail to an SMTP server like hMailServer.

I have never tried it before.. but u can give it a try.... it is called small or mini sendmail... I believe... :rolleyes:

Development of Mecury Mail has been stopped and i do not recommend it because of that. I still say, hMailServer....

The developers of Mecury also has a new one i believe called Pegasus or something.... check that one out...

*works out a strategy to make Olajide reveal some of his Mail Server Tutorial plans*

For Mini Sendmail (or Blat), all you have to do is edit sendmail_path, but why not just set SMTP to a valid Mail Server?

Correct me if I'm wrong :angry:

Can you give me a tutorial on how to get this working? I am using PHPBB2, the latest uniserver (3.2)

I still can't get it to accept message, and relay them. I have tried my ISP's smtp account, my friends account, one at gmail, one at hotpop, and a couple others.

Could you give some really basic instructions on how to get it relaying?

It is easy to install and i don't think it needs much of anything..

Just install it to your computer and when you reach the point where it asks you to install a new version of MySQL say no and it should ask which MySQL installtion to use, it is there that you start the server and point it to W:/usr/local/mysql/ and everything should be OK...

If you need further help just start a new support thread.

I personally have been quite pleased with DNSMadeEasy.com

They offer Imap/Pop as well as SMTP for really cheap (something like 25/year for imap/pop, under 10bucks for SMTP)

You would only have to point your domain's MX records to their servers (which offer 5x redundancy) to get all emails directed there... It's really quite easy.

hmailserver works fine in out look but it doesnt work for php send mail...


That's not correct. hMailServer works fine with the PHP mail() function if that's what you're talking about. By default, hMailServer requires authentication when sending email. Of some obscure reason that I'm not aware of, PHP mail() doesn't support this, even if's been in the SMTP-standard for years. But you can easily override this hMailServer requirement by modifying the IP ranges so that authentication isn't required from the web server. (Simply de-select Require authentication for deliveries for the IP range that matches your web server).

wow.. I am honored :D :P

Do you think there is something we can plan to have it as a plugin for Uniform Server...

Since it is not mobile and needs to write to the C:/Windows and so on...

we could make a installation package including hmailserver, as well as modified uniformserver files with the necessary changes made to work with it and an installation guide.
