Services and ModulesAXIGEN Mail Server is an Internet-based mail server that provides messaging services over the Internet via connections using a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) network. AXIGEN Mail Server sends mail messages using the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). The messages can be retrieved using the Post Office Protocol version 3 (POP3), the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) and WebMail. AXIGEN Mail Storage integrates a proprietary technology that allows storing messages in a special directory structure, guaranteeing an effective, fast mail flow and optimizing space-saving.
Architecture FeaturesAXIGEN incorporates a multi-threaded engine, which can break server activity into multiple parallel processing threads. This enables system administrators to allocate a certain number of processing threads to specific modules (SMTP incoming / SMTP outgoing / WebMail / IMAP, etc.) Running services can be configured at service, domain and account level.
Most AXIGEN services (SMTP Incoming, SMTP Outgoing, POP, IMAP, WebMail) make use of configurable listeners to define rules for accepting or denying connections.
Administration ToolsThe administration tools enable both centralized configuration (WebAdmin and Command Line Interface) and manual configuration (configuration file).
For each service described in the Architecture chapter, configuration options are available in each of these tools (WebAdmin, CLI and the configuration file, axigen.cfg.
SecurityAXIGEN incorporates an advanced filtering system and other innovative security tools (Antivirus, AntiSpam, Antispoofing - SPF Authentication, SSL/TLS authentication).
Highly configurable logging and reporting services are also available, and an FTP Backup service allowing you to securely backup and restore your domain and user configuration.
