Mailtraq is a commercial mail and groupware server. It runs on Microsoft Windows.

Features[edit]

The email server offers POP3, SMTP, HTTP, IMAP4 all with SSL/TLS support, plus NNTP, and provides webmail functionality. It includes Bayesian anti-spam classification, and interfaces natively with Spamassassin. It also provides a SyncML service to allow direct synchronization for contacts and calendars with the BlackBerry, iPhone and similar devices.

Versions[edit]

The first release of the product (then named "Fastraq Mail Server") was in 1996.

The current version is 2.17

Editions[edit]

There are two editions:

  • Professional - contains all features
  • Essential - contains basic SMTP, POP3 and mailbox functions


A Proxy function is available as an add-on for either edition.

There is also a free version called "Mailtraq4Home" that is limited to 4 users.

Databases[edit]

The software stores messages in a database. The current version provides three database options:

  • AFV/IDX is the original storage method, with each mailbox having a dedicated pair of files
  • Firebird is a SQL database, storing all mailboxes in the same file
  • AFX is the latest database option, with each mailbox being stored in a separate file (but without the need for a sidecar IDX file)
