A Sneak Preview of NetWin's SurgeMail

Exit Dmail, Enter SurgeMail

May 6, 2002

NetWin is phasing out its old mail server, Dmail, in favor of its new product, SurgeMail. Once SurgeMail comes out of beta and is released, it will bring NetWin into the Linux commercial mail server market with a full feature set and some lower cost versions available for the home user and small business markets. If you're looking for a solution with integrated Webmail, spam-handling facilities, and more, you should check this product out before making a final decision.

Supported Platforms

SurgeMail 1.0 is available for a number of platforms and has minimal hardware requirements as far as just running the software goes. You can utilize SurgeMail 1.0 under:

  • Linux distributions running libc6 and later
  • Windows 98, NT, and 2000
  • Solaris 7 and 8

Builds for other operating systems will be made available based on demand. As far as hardware requirements go, SurgeMail 1.0 needs little above and beyond what's required to run your operating system. Additional requirements include:

  • 10MB disk space
  • 16MB RAM
  • Pentium 100 MHz processor

Obviously these are minimal requirements. Since this is a mail server product, if you have heavy mail use then you'll need significantly more disk space and RAM, and there's the usual caveats about the fastest machine you can spare.
