The Merak server (or servers) can be managed with the Administration Console or a browser-based interface. Access to most of the important features is provided, but some management will require command-line action and special utilities. Support is provided for all the usual e-mail protocols (ie., SMTP, ESMTP, POP3, and IMAP 4), and some of the built-in features include proxy services, multiple domains, mailing lists and list server, notifications, catalogs, remote accounts, system backup, and a native Web server.

User management is adequate, although bulk loading of many users and updating authentication information is less sophisticated than in other products. Security for the system is generally very good (especially with the anti-virus and anti-spam modules in place) and includes open-relay control, tarpitting, SSL, and content filtering.
