kindly post the output of 'ipconfig /all' on your windows IIS server so that we can better identify which software would work best with your network. If your linux server is up-and-running, it might also be helpful to see the output of 'ifconfig -a | grep inet'

From all the benchmarks I've seen, qmail leads the way as the fastest MTA. For info on how to install it check If you need something a little easier to setup you may want to consider Postfix.

QMAIL mail Server in Linux

I am interested in using Qmail Mail server in Linux. I was satisfied with the Qmail features. I would like to send around 100k mails(birthday cards, Thanksgiving cards,etc... ) to our clients per day. Currently I am using Windows 2000 platform and running IIS Server and our mails are send from IMailer Server.
At present i would like to send mails from a linux OS using Qmail Mail Server and the applications are being runned in a Windows 2000 platform and runnning IIS Server.
I would like to know whether Qmail Mail Server in linux supports(compacts with) IIS Server runnning in Win 2000 for processing mails and sending?
If so i would like to know how could i configure my Win System and Linux System to send 100k mails per day?

I hope the above requirements mentioned are clear and kindky reply to me a soon as poosible.

I don't think there would be any problem doing what you're wanting. You can inject the 100k messages using a script in Linux.

In your case, I recommend using Life With Qmail, which is a link in my signature below. If you're going to host a bunch of domains or if you want more features on your mail server, you can use the other lnk I'm showing there, or you can try These howtos give you more utilities to work with. The ones I think you'd be interested in are the logging features like qmail-analog, IsoQlog, and MRTG for qmail.
