Free when it comes to the price, and free when it comes to how you can use or distribute it. hMailServer supports the open email standards POP3, SMTP and IMAP4.

Installation & Configuration
Tired of manually editing .conf and .ini files? Installing and configuring hMailServer is easy and takes only a few minutes. The server comes with an easy-to-use MMC-like administration called hMailAdmin. hMailAdmin lets you add domains & accounts, specify settings, enable virus scanning and so on. The documentation describes the features in detail. If you have any questions, there's a great user forum full of helping users to turn to. The hMailServer developers answers question in this forum as well. When you seek support at the forum, the average reply time is less than two hours!
hMailServer supports both MySQL and Microsoft SQL Server. MySQL is free software and is the recommended choice. The hMailServer installation includes a minimal, built-in installation of the MySQL database server. It is offered as an option. If you select it, the built-in server will be installed and configured automatically during the hMailServer installation. The built-in server saves you the hassle of having to set up and configure a separate database server for hMailServer.
SquirrelMail hMailServer is compatible with any email client which supports SMTP, POP3 and IMAP. This is true also when it comes to web mail clients. hMailServer can use any web mail system which supports these protocols (normally SMTP and IMAP is used, not POP3). Depending on what server you are running, different web mail systems may suit your needs. For example, some webmail systems relies on the PHP scripting engine (which typically runs under Apache) while other relies on ASP (which normally runs under Microsoft Internet Information servers). If you choose to use SquirrelMail under Windows, you can let your users change their own passwords and out-of-office messages using a hMailServer plug-in for SquirrelMail.
hMailServer is pre-configured to have high security when it comes to relaying and authentication so that no one can use your server to send spam messages. It also supports the very popular open source virus scanner ClamAV. Configuring hMailServer to use ClamAV only takes a single click! The server also supports black list servers and other spam-stopping mechanisms such as SPF and MX lookups.
Source code hMailServer comes with a COM library that can be used for integration with other software. Using the COM library, it's possible to write scripts and full applications that utilize the features in hMailServer. For example, you can integrate hMailServer into your current IT-systems so that new employees automatically get email accounts. Both hMailServer Administrator and the PHP web-based frontend uses the COM API to manage the server.
