TecChannel - Exchange Replacement for Linux

Axigen Mail Server 4.0 is a solid messaging solution, with a fast and easy installation. No extensive command line knowledge is necessary, since the system administrator can manage almost everything through the WebAdmin interface. We encountered no major issues during the testing. The user manual is professional, comprehensive and well-illustrated. The price is also fair: 195 Euro for a license of 25 mailboxes.

FIRsT Support is to be mentioned as well. The vendor offers free technical support for the first year, covering the Axigen installation, migration and configuration. The support service is available by email, with a guaranteed response time of 24 hours.

Our test has also included several questions for the Axigen support team. We received fast and competent answers, which made the experience more than satisfactory. Besides FIRsT Support, Axigen also offers additional support packages for certain fees, with services ranging from support by phone to sending an expert on site.

The lack of support for the Outlook Connector contact lists was the only inconvenience. To make the most of the Axigen features, it would be advised to use the WebMail client. Still, Axigen Mail Server definitely deserves to be recommended.
