Linux User & Developer - Axigen Messaging 7.6.1 review

A relatively pain-free install process, excellent features and a good web-based configuration interface make Axigen a joy to use. [...] Account configuration is pretty straightforward and Axigen supports almost every connection type you could hope for – including webmail via an AJAX-powered interface that does a good job of pretending to be a desktop application. [...]

There’s no denying that Axigen Messaging is a powerful platform, and ticks many of the boxes that an administrator looking for a route away from Windows and Exchange needs ticking [...].

During our tests, Axigen performed well – even when doing our best to load the server, the system handled our connections fine and didn’t falter. [...]

While the price of Axigen’s business offering may put off users on a budget, it offers an impressive array of groupware features not previously seen in a Linux product. With Outlook-compatible calendars, IMAP, POP3 and webmail clients, and even optional push support for BlackBerry devices, it may well offer administrators a way to switch away from Microsoft’s ubiquitous Exchange platform in the enterprise.
