Any plans for Linux version?!
Idea shared by Alex Johnson - August 7, 2016 at 11:44 PM
I've been working with SmarterMail for a few years and I've always loved it.
It would be nice to see a linux version of this product.
Other products like Axigen, support both windows and linux.

Hi Alex,
Thanks for reaching out. We do have plans for a SmarterMail Linux version, and I know there are many other admins that will be excited when we implement this. It's not currently in the works but this is the direction we hope to take after our interface redesign in SmarterMail 16.x. 
Thank you,

Is a Linux version on the development roadmap or still just aspirational?
I use SmaterMail in my company for almost 5 years and it works pretty well, it's fast and reliable (if properly configured). However, I must say that the lack of Linux support is the only (and bigger) con of using SmarterMail nowadays. In the near future my company is planning to move its online infrastructure to Linux, which the benefits of this OS is well known. Then it would be nice, really nice, to have a SmarterMail for Linux.

It is something we are working on.  When we made SmarterMail 16.x we started moving native code in common areas so that we could build Windows and Linux side by side.  We may be able to complete that process with SmarterMail v17.x and then will be able to test Mono performance.  Based on how well Unity runs (Game Development Studio) and other tools using Mono we have high hopes!  Right now we are in the final few months of SmarterMail v17.x development.

Hoping the progress is going well...  Are you using a mono host env, or .Net Core for the porting?  Just curious on the ststus.  Haven't run smartermail for 8-9 years now but would like to return.
Also, hosting in docker with a mount or s3 support for backups would be nice.  no idea where the product is at now.
