The qmail code has undergone drastic change within IndiMail and is
being continuously changed and support. Almost all features in
IndiMail have been achieved by changing/adding code in the existing
qmail. In fact the code base has grown from 16617 lines to 96444
lines. Let me assure you that IndiMail is being continuously developed
for the past 11 years and was released on 15 Aug 2008. You can see the
latest code commits since the last few years


IndiMail supports out of the box features like Spam Filter,
greylisting, BATV, SMTP Router, IMAP/POP3 Proxy, high scalability
email server, ESMTP, STARTTLS, SSL, accesslist, multiple queues,
DKIM/Domainkeys, QMQP, QMTP, MXPS, SOX HIPAA, Abuse Report Format and
many more. Once You install IndiMail, you don't need any other
software (IMAP, POP3, Spam Filtering, Firewall, etc). If you are a
developer or a user, you are welcome to join and contribute to

scale-ability using commodity linux servers.


IndiMail provides RPM and debian packages for almost all distros along
with Yum Repository at
