Mailborder Overview


What is Mailborder?

Mailborder is a clusterable email gateway solution and a MailScanner frontend built on open source technology. It allows for the configuration and maintenance of multiple email gateways through a single graphical user interface. Mailborder can be deployed as a single standalone server or as a cluster.


How does it work?

Mailborder works in a Master-Child relationship role. Each Mailborder configuration has one Mailborder Master server. This Master server functions as both an email gateway and a central configuration point. Child servers do not require individual configuration as they pull their settings from the Mailborder Master server. A typical email gateway cluster consists of one Master and two Child servers, but many more Child servers can be implemented if required. A solution can also consist of a single Master server if desired.


What's required to start?

The Mailborder installation requires a base install of Red Hat v6.x (or variants such as CentOS), Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, Debian 6, or Debian 7. The servers can be either physical or virtual utilizing technologies such as VMware. See the Install Guide for detailed information. You will also need to get a license from the Mailborder website.


How much does it cost?

The Mailborder Community Edition is free. Extended capability and advanced options are available in the extended editions of Mailborder. See the Mailborder Store for prices.
