Siportal has been active in the Internet connectivity market since 2001 and it is very well-know in Italy for the quality of its services, the ability to meet customers’ needs and the speed to adapt its offer to market changes. Siportal wanted to complete its offer with hosting services (domain and email) via the siregister and simail brands.
"The strong desire to offer our customers an innovative solution for email, along with webmail access and calendaring and collaboration capabilities, was the main reason which led Siportal to choose Axigen", said Fabio Emanuele, CTO Siportal.
Kuvera s.p.a., one of the leading Italian firms in the leather and fashion accessories sectors, was in search of a reliable messaging solution that they could use to provide email service for their employees working in their 500 stores across Italy.
Why Axigen? “We wanted an all-in-one messaging solution, with friendly Web interfaces for administration and user mail. Axigen provided these and also had an excellent quality/price ratio," said Roberto Barbarossa, CIO at Kuvera s.p.a.
Universal Motors Corporation (UMC) is the largest and oldest 100% Filipino-owned assembler and distributor of Nissan Light Commercial Vehicles. The company had been using a qmail-based email system for about 5 years when they decided to search for an alternative solution. They chose Axigen for its ease of administration, increased performance and security, as well as native Outlook connectivity and groupware capabilities.
CHED, the institution in charge of the tertiary and graduate education sectors in the Philippines, replaced its qmail and SquirrelMail-based system with Axigen. Implementation benefits included "almost a no brainer installation and maintenance”, solid security and 24x7 technical support.
“With the older, qmail-based system, it was quite difficult to delegate critical administrative tasks such as patching and upgrades. We also appreciated Gecad engineers’ knowledge and experience in anti-spam features such as Greylisting, DNSBL, individual blacklists, which were (admittedly) a pain to apply with the aging qmail program.” – CHED
Tashi InfoComm Ltd. was looking for a high-performance, yet cost-effective solution that they could use to provide email services to their employees and to further expand their offer to customers. Axigen on Linux emerged as the perfect choice:
“During the process, we found the Axigen mail server to meet our requirements in terms of features as well as price. We definitely feel it’s one of the best messaging solutions, having robust features, high scalability, interesting add-ons and great technical support,” said Puran Rai, IT Engineer at Tashi InfoComm Ltd.
Philusa Corporation switched out their qmail-based system with AXIGEN Mail Server to meet the need for greater reliability, scalability and cost-efficiency. Using the AXIGEN Business Edition on Linux offers the company a good foundation for improving employees' productivity, reducing operating costs and staying ahead of competition.
As Mr. Arlan Dimalanta, IT Manager at Philusa Corporation, further explains, the decision to choose AXIGEN over other messaging and collaboration solutions in the market: “was mainly based on three things: the right fit of the product, the right compatibility with Linux and the right cost.”
The AXIGEN Service Provider solution was deployed in a full clustering and horizontal scalability architecture built on existing elements in SchoolCenter's network such as load balancers, redundant network infrastructure, firewalls etc. The math was simple:
- Previous Vpopmail/qmail + MySQL setup: 10 servers (4 front-end server, 6 back-ends and 1 fileserver) supported 60,000 users
- Clustered AXIGEN Service Provider: SAN storage and 6 servers (2 Front-ends, 2 Back-ends, 1 LDAP and 1 Hot Stand-by) able to support more than 200,000 mailboxes
[...] As also underlined by Shari McMillan-Strack, VP of Product Development at SchoolCenter: "another reason for which we chose AXIGEN was kind of a unique requirement to us: we needed the ability to skin the product. More precisely, we required our company branding to be integrated in the product that went out to our customers. We also wanted the ability to skin the product at an even deeper level in order to create customer specific skins per domain."
McCormick Philippines, Inc initially used the Postfix email server for their electronic mail. The decision to look for a new messaging solution mainly came as a result of the company’s pressing needs to solve and further prevent security issues such as the growing number of virus threats and spam messages.
"With our previous system, we kept on receiving a bulk of spam mails every day. Also, maintenance was difficult for our IT personnel with no background in Linux", says Christopher Eslava, IT Manager, McCormick Philippines, Inc.
The Department of Labor Inspection initially managed its email services using an Open Source mail server, Postfix, while storing messages on a dedicated server and organizing account information in an OpenLDAP database.
The high email traffic, the necessity to lower the email processing queue, to optimize WebMail services and benefit from specialized technical support and maintenance led to the implementation of a new messaging solution: AXIGEN Mail Server.
I have worked in computing for a little under twenty years and have used a variety of mail systems from rock solid UNIX mail to the not so rock solid Microsoft Exchange.
AXIGEN makes the rock solid UNIX mail an easily deployable solution for whatever size your company is and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking to host their own mailing system.

I am an IT professional working for a large international IT integrator in Switzerland. As lots of other IT pros, I have quite an impressive home environment, including a full Active Directory, and I am hosting my own email domain and web site on a Linux box. I don’t like having my emails stored at an ISP’s datacenter. Not that I would have to hide something but you know, we ITs suffer from some kind of security paranoia :-)
For years, I have used a combination of Sendmail and Open WebMail to manage my email communication. Why did you change, you may wonder? There were two main reasons:
- As an IT pro, I have the tendency to always use leading edge technology which means that I very often reinstall my Linux system when a new version hits the road...
