Introduction

BearMail is a collection of tools to help you manage a "mail server", with the following components:

  • Postfix MTA: receive mail for your domains, send mail for your users (SMTP Auth, TLS, etc)
  • Dovecot IMAP/POP server: store and retrieve your mails
  • RoundCubeMail webmail: use your email anywhere
  • Anti-virus, anti-spam: ClamAV, DSPAM

It was primarily designed as a system administration tool which coherrently configures all these packages from centralized, simple and bullet-proof configuration data. It is evolving with a user-oriented web interface, and shortly more scalability features like database backends.

Features

  • Easy: file-based configuration (VCS friendly), adding or modifying accounts, aliases, etc is a one-liner
  • Efficient and measurable default anti-spam settings (see also PostfixLogTools)
  • Adminsys friendly: let you tune configuration details and get out of your way
  • Standard: use various softwares in their preferred and recommended configuration (we parsed a huge bunch of documentation and forums for you)
  • Resilient: no daemon, very low ressource usage, few dependencies
  • Secure: primarily a CLI tool, relies on traditionnal, simple and auditable Unix security
  • Tested: it has successfully been used by Bearstech since early 2008 on several servers with thousands of user accounts.
