Hi,

I wanted to share that I've been running the Linux BETA as an incoming gateway for one of our dedicated client environments. They are very supportive and have given us permission to test this new BETA product

Specifications:
- Ubuntu 24.04 LTS
- 4 Cores
- 8GB RAM

average 2k email per day

Thanks SmarterMail Team!

Glad to hear it's been working well for you. Linux will be nice for these scenarios too where you just need a simple gateway server but don't want to spend the windows money for a whole new box.

Tan, 

How has the Gateway been performing for you? If you are willing to share are you doing spam checks on the 2k messages per day?

Thank you

Hi Tony,
So far so good, no complains from client at all.

Hmmmm spam filter is enabled but the report has 0 spam filtered at all. Strange..... Do you want me to ticket in?

Our latest 8930 beta actually fixes up some of the stats not showing up right in reports. We had a bug in the beta that prevented a chunk of statistics from being recorded. Once you've applied that version you should start seeing stats again, no history from before the update though as the issue was with recording stats.

Linux Version: Ubuntu 24.04 LTS
Selected build: 100.0.8930.39839
Detected SmarterMail version 100.0.8902.37230 installed on this machine.

Ok performed an upgrade today as scheduled with client.

The upgrading is so much smoother than Windows. 3 command line and things are done. Loving it.

I will report back the stats next week.

We appreciate the feedback and we're glad to hear that things are going smoothly.


Although some of us have used Linux variants over the years for specific purposes (firewalls, PBX, game servers, etc.), most of us have been die-hard Windows users. But that is definitely changing!


Not only did we bring SmarterMail to Linux, but we also moved most of our infrastructure to Linux and Google Cloud. We are very focused on bringing the best experience to Linux, just as we did, and will continue to do, with Windows.


We have a ton of new features and releases planned for the remainder of the year. It's all pretty exciting, but it has been a lot to juggle. But, so far so good!
