Which one you look for free or commercial ? You can use hhMailServer for free one, I've been using it for year, and always satisfy me. It also support SpamAssasin for additional spam engine checker. If you look for commercial, then nothing more powerful then Microsoft Exchange.


Windows Server 2003 has a built-in POP3/SMTP mail server: http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Windows_POP3_Service.html.

If you want something more powerful, the Microsoft solution is, of course, Exchange.

    But bear in mind that the POP3 component has been dropped from Windows 2008, which might be important if you plan on using it and then upgrading in future... – Roger Lipscombe Aug 30 '09 at 15:50
  • what open source tools ? – Sajad Bahmani Aug 30 '09 at 18:15
  • The POP3/SMTP components are built-in, there's no additional cost in using them if you already own a Windows Server 2003 license. – Massimo Aug 31 '09 at 2:15

What about http://james.apache.org/ ? It can store the messages in the database if you need to :)
