nginx based mail server application readily available right at the time of deployment

  • Posted July 27, 2014

Hi, I have been searching for an alternative for iredmail. the only reason is that nginx is not yet supported by iredmail.

I have been through a lot of names but frankly could not settle on one specific reliable solution.

Could there be an application solution made available (right at the time of deployment, in the create droplet page) as a mail server that works on nginx and has a stable manageable configuration?

I bet that it will be just awesome, I am sure it will definitely lure in a lot of DIY enthusiasts to host and manage their own mail servers and domains.

$$ :-) $$ :-)

Please keep up the good work.

thanks & regards,

Creating a mail server app is an interesting idea. Though it wouldn’t be able to be a true on-click app as there will always be some individual configuration required of a mail server. DigitalOcean tracks feature requests on UserVoice. You should consider adding your idea there.

As for iRedMail on Nginx, while it is not officially support some people have had some success with it.
