Why don't you just try it out?

Maybe it'll suit your needs (we don't know what these are), or maybe not.

Experiment.

"I'm not going to put my toe into the water, because it might be too warm, or too cool".

Don't be a scaredy-cat. Just try it.

I'd do it for you, but I have no need for a mail system, so it would be difficult for me to see if it works for you, and as I said in my previous post, we don't know what your requirements are (five users, fifty users, 50,000,000 users?).

Once you try it, I expect you'll be pleasantly surprised.

If not, just uninstall (or ignore) it and try something else.

It is free software, what are you afraid of losing?

Younger people seem to need their hands holding all the time nowadays.

Where is your sense of adventure ?

I for one love iRedmail it's the one I use, though I probably don't have as much system resources it does it's job for me perfectly, but one thing I will say is the Policy daemon, to try and avoid any backscatter, when I was running a mail server from howtoforge their courier one and all that installation I was getting a whole lot of backscatter, when someone spoofs your email address but it goes to a failed recipient so it comes back saying mail can't be sent but I never sent that mail in the first place.

The Perl I think it's an SPF policy? What iRedmail does is send back the email saying it can't be sent to the server until they try again later, usually spammers won't try again, but the legit emailers will send again, so new senders tend to take up to about 2 hours (usually allot less) to send the mail back and then the next time they send mail (as long as it's within the policy time scales) will receive again immediately.

It also checks to make sure the sender comes from the same network as the email domain they come from aswell, it's a really good service I think easier to install and maintain, I really like it all in all.
