In-House Hosting Is Still Valuable

Pros

MDaemon allows for economical, reliable, and customized control of vital email communications. Moving email hosting to cloud has its benefits, but relinquishing control is a big negative. With MDaemon, I control spam filtering, antivirus, and routing rules. As long as MDaemon is affordable and reliable, I will keep email in house.

Cons

Setup is not difficult but there are many steps to get fully implemented.

Reliable mailing solution at a 1:10th of O365 cost

Positive experience, you can put MDaemon on a pen drive and never stops from running.

Very stable and lightweight on RAM and CPU, but from the user's perspective the performance is dictated by a well implemented SSD storage for it's mailbox folder.

Technical support was good, they reply to even those without subscribed assistance within two days from opening the ticket.

The features & performance / cost factor when compared to O365 was also a very strong point. You pay once and are not obliged to commit after support ending, and have total freedom and control over your mail storage and server configuration.

Pros

- Stability;
- Scalability - you can upgrade to larger storage with ease, the mailbox content is only limited by how much Outlook pst files can handle;
- Very easy to perform hardware migrations from one machine to another;
- Very light on memory and processing resources;
- Piece of mind when doing version upgrades (all settings are preserved, no nasty surprises);
- It works very well with "previous versions" feature on restoring permanently deleted emails by the user;
- Independence and freedom of implementation according to your business needs: you have total control over it's features and settings. SPF implementation was of a great help in protecting our company from Phishing.
- Very easy to troubleshoot. Being inhouse we had full access to log files and hardware. Downtimes were rare (one two per year) and when they were occurred were in the order of minutes.
- Cost: 500$ per one year support. When it ends, your server keeps running you can still use your server and access data on it. Even so, we opted to continue with support renewal.

Cons

Outlook Connector never lived up to it's name. It didn't performed well with thousands of emails in each folder. I had to return to the Outlook's IMAP profile settings and .pst files to overcome this issue.

Outlook Connector didn't worked well with roaming profiles, since it stored some of it's data in AppData Roaming folder instead of Local and when sync issues existed it led to the deletion of Connector's mail account settings.

MDaemon Mail Server, easy to use

After being years with the product, software has improved alot and the latest versions are really easier to use/manage.

Pros

Migration, Upgrade, Deployment, all these admin tasks work easily. User, domain management as well.

Cons

Since we are based in Australia and not on the same timezone, we struggle to get support quickly. I know that there is a paid version that gets you covered 24/7, but we can cope with the overnight answers, that are really helpful BTW.

Response from MDaemon Technologies

Thanks for your feedback Tony! I'm happy to hear our support team serves you well, despite the time zone difference.

Exceptional alternative to Microsoft Exchange!

We prefer to have our own in-house email server and the same for our clients (when practical). Mdaemon is the perfect solution for rock solid in-house email hosting. It is far less complicated and massively simpler and more straightforward to manage than Exchange.

Pros

We are a very long time user of Mdaemon email server (going back to the late 90's). I especially enjoy the very easy and straightforward server management it provides. We have also used Microsoft Exchange and, without any hesitation, will always choose Mdaemon over Exchange. There is really no comparison when it comes to ease of management and disaster recovery. I also love the fact I can watch, in real time, email flow and server handshakes. This makes it extremely easy to troubleshoot mail flow issues between servers. The logging is also extremely thorough. Also, the fact that all messages are stored as standard text based .msg files means it is extremely simple to backup and restore mailboxes and perform disaster recovery (if ever needed).
Lastly, there is the price advantage. Mdaemon pricing simply blows all other comparable options out of the water.

Cons

Honestly, there is nothing I dislike about Mdaemon. It performs exactly as needed and is extremely powerful.

Response from MDaemon Technologies

Thank you for your comments! We find that, like you, many of our users made the switch from Exchange for the very same reasons.
