Hosted E-Mail Service Leaves Windows for Linux
From a platform based on Windows running in-house applications, Webmail.us has moved to Red Hat's Linux operating system with open-source e-mail applications such as PostFix, SquirrelMail, Courier, and Clam A/V. Coupled with infrastructure enhancements to its data center, Webmail.us now offers clients a guaranteed uptime of 99.99 percent, Matthews said. Webmail.us also supports IMAP4 (Internet Message Access Protocol Version 4) and POP3 (Post Office Protocol 3) and features antivirus protection.
