iRedMail is a complete open-source mail suite that include a mail server, and a webmail client. It is built for enterprise use as it support Calendars management and sync, Contact Sync ActiveSync, CalDav and CardDav and more.

iRedMail plays well with the popular webmail client and groupware: SOGo Groupware, so If you are planning to have a mail suite consider using SOGo and iRedMail together.

It offers a rich-feature server backend, web-based dashboard and a webmail for email users.

System setup does not require more than several minutes and works smoothly with Linux and Unix  servers.

By default, iRedMail supports POP3, IMAP, SMTP over TLS and offers an outstanding webmail app with full HTTPS support.

Emails are encrypted using TLS and passwords are stored in SSH512 or BCRYPT.

iRedMail supports multiple domain, unlimited user accounts, mailing lists, multiple admins and unlimited mailboxes.

It is up to the system admin to choose where and how to store emails, as iRedMail supports OpenLDAP, MySQL, MariaDB, and PostgreSQL.

iRedMail offers a built-in and third-party spam and antivirus protection with support of SpamAssassin, ClamAV, SPF, DKIM, and built-in messages quarantine.

iRedMail comes in a free open-source edition and a pro edition with an advanced admin panel for enterprise users. We recommend starting with the basic open-source free edition before upgrading to the pro one.
