Dear since 2 years, i migrate from Windows to ubuntu and now i want to participate to the community and especially on Ubuntu/Debian.
For this i had created an Opensource Product called Artica

n several cases, Linux products are :stable, powerfull,have better performances, free of charge... more and more...

But installing, managing and maintaining these products require some linux knowledge...

People who start Linux do not have necessarily time and knowledge to quickly provide a complete SMTP/IMAP server for their company.
Artica For Postfix is a free product designed to reduce the cost in order to create and manage a full linux mail server. Especially the free Web consoles for postfix available did not provide all the available features in a "sexy way".
Artica For Postfix is designed to answer for free

You are not a Linux expert, Artica for Postfix allows you to install a full solution by one single command line:

* Postfix: Main MTA
* Bogofilter : Bayesian anti-spam
* OpenLDAP: Database for main configuration and user management
* emailrelay: little SMTP server (used as a content-filter)
* SQLite library: zeroconf sql database engine with high perfomances.
* Cyrus-imap: powerfull MDA System
* Procmail: MDA Filter
* Fetchmail: Email retreival
* DnsMasq:DNS forwarder and DHCP server
* Mailman:Mailing List manager
* Sieve: End-user mail filters
* Yorel script: Statistics of yorel
* QueueGraph: Statistics for postfix
* MailGraph: Statistics for postfix
* AWSTats and geoip plugin: Statistics set for postfix
* renattach: attachments filter
* pure-ftpd : FTP server using LDAP.
* Squid : The main proxy server.
* DansGuardian : URL filtering...

"All these products are joined together in only one interface in order to lay down logical mail rules in ergonomic way."

You can find the deb package on sourceforge

And screenshots on http://www.artica.fr

Have fun !!

Hi David,
You did a great job. I love Arctica in first instance. Will give you some feedback after using it.
