For years we use Communigate Pro on iSeries, it's amazingly better than the
native OS/400 SMTP server.
All our mail applications are based on it. On their website there's a free
version to try on different platforms.
Yesterday I've sent an e-mail to 6,000 adresses, in 10 minutes about 5,500
Some numbers to think about:
Speed: Up to 10 mails/second
Average Day: Some 15,000 mails: 5,000 in + 10,000 out
PS: Jim, any big difference between running it natively or on Linux? We've
did some experiments on small Windows Servers, but it did well only with
very small loads.

Some advice, please. I know this is off subject for this discussion group,
What e-mail servers can you recommend, and what are the hardware and
We have a System i application that creates e-mails and using the 'built-in'
System i e-mail server just isn't cutting it in response time. It can
sometimes takes 10 minutes to get it to forward an e-mail. The same
application running on a different System i with a separate e-mail server
(i.e. NOT using the System i e-mail server) SEEMS to just scream. IT takes
seconds for a created e-mail to arrive at its destination.
