This is a complete rip-off!

The app itself is not bad, but it won't work after a major system update. If you buy MailServe for 10.7 you will have to buy again the very same app for 10.8 without any additional features. Just buy it again for a new system.

I already bought it twice, won't buy it again.

Better to use a free solution, see how to enable postfix here: http://slashusr.wordpress.com/2012/02/14/enabling-postfix-for-outbound-relay-via-gmail-on-os-x-lion-11/

In mail software, it is important to provide security updates regularly as the core software releases new fixes. This has not happened in the past year or two, despite my observing at least one CVE against the underlying software.

Virtual folders never could be set up correctly, even inserting stock code in the custom directives section straight from the dovecot manuals.

I contacted the author once, after over a month of waiting for a response, gave up.

While it was good software at the time, I find myself wishing I could find a better solution that used more current dovecot.

Bought this to replace an old OSX server that was running only to SMTP relay.

v 3.04 didn't have the right TLS options. Emailed Bernard who was super responsive, and even built me a new version, 3.06, which works great!

My only tiny tiny suggestion is that the Auth and TLS options are not 100% clear.

A great piece of software, from a true gentleman of a developer. I recently decided to try to run my own web and email servers (as well as file sharing, etc) of an older MacMini, and -- in the process of looking for true Mac-like software to help me in my crazy plan -- I came across this. However, my ignorance of these matters and lack of experience almost caused me to give up on the email server part. However, the developer was kind enough to explain some of the functionality of mail servers and of his software in a relatively lengthy email exchange, and things are up and running smoothly now!

If you're relatively new (as I am) to setting up your own mail server behind a router at home or at the office, then make sure to check out the handful of truly helpful write-ups he has on his website: "OS X and Broadband and the Airport Base Station", "Send Email Anywhere", and other very helpful writings that helped me configure my system safely and get it up and running. Thanks, Bernard!

Excellent software and the author answers technical queries.
Moved from Postfix Enabler in Sept. after asking "should I wait until there was a Leopard version". No answer so bought it anyway. Upgraded to Leopard in Nov. Tiger version doesn't work and there is no upgrade for recent purchasers. Hence value rating.

"...totally buzzword compliant mail server"?

Um, is that a new mail protocol in Leopard?

Since when where POP, SMTP, IMAP or whatever considered "buzzwords"?

Sorry, but that has to be the dumbest description for an application that I've ever heard.

Setup was incredibly easy. Intuitive interface, simple, easy-to-understand instructions, and as advertised, very Apple-like.

The developer offers no trial whatsoever. You should buy it blindly and if it does not suit your needs, know your money is gone (no refund).

Bernard: "[refunds et al] ...will waste my time. The product is so cheap that the time you take from me answering your questions cost more than the cost of the product."

So expect no trials, nor too much support! Paid = gone.
