MagicMail Email Server

The new website for the commercial version of the MagicMail Server is located at

Because of the power of the anti-spam tools we have (had) developed an OpenSource version of the Magic SMTPD server, which is a drop-in replacement for the qmail-smtpd daemon, developed by Dan Bernstein which we have released under the LinuxMagic Free Source License. However, now that Qmail has been released under new licenses, the need for our SMTPD daemon to the opensource community is not as great as before. Although we still have many requests for it because of the built-in Anti-Spam components, we cannot justify maintaining this tree anymore. We can however on a custom basis make your Qmail installation work with our 'MagicSpam' technology. Otherwise, if you are looking for a supported replacement you can look at the notes below for the commercial version. Our regrets to all those currently using magic-smtpd, however if you are using this product, we will still try to help you out if you email our support department or sales department.

If you really need access to the deprecated information, it is still available for a while at
