System Requirements

The minimum system requirements to run Mailtraq are very light, and Mailtraq will run on all current Microsoft Windows operating systems: older versions of Windows -  Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012 - are also supported

Mailtraq can take advantage of multiple CPU's if they are available.  Mailtraq works well in a 64-bit environment** like Windows 7, Windows 8, Server 2008, 2012 or even XP 64-bit, or on virtual machines such as VMWare

It is not possible to give a firm recommendation as machine sizing needs to reflect your email requirements - a large installation using IMAP and holding a large amount of mail on the server needs a more powerful machine than a small installation using just POP3 with no mail storage.

As guidance only, a notional installation in a webmail or IMAP environment would be:

For SOHO and small sized business
Windows 7, installed on a current PC with a suggested profile of:
Intel i5-2400 processor or equal, 8GB RAM, 500GB* fast access Hard Drive
For a medium sized organization or SMB/SME:
Windows Server 2008, installed on a current server grade PC with a suggested profile of: Intel quad-core ~3GHz processor, 16GB RAM, 2x1TB* fast access Hard Drives RAID

Plus additional space for Archiving.

Mail servers should be dedicated machines.


Pay attention to the message storage, archiving and backup requirements of your installation. Long retention periods of live email, large local archives or large email flow will all consume large amounts of storage. Storage must be scaled to suit your own requirements. Archive storage space needs to be in proportion to the volume of email messages and their size. If you are in an environment that commonly has large attachments to emails you must size accordingly.

Larger installations would benefit from a more powerful system and smaller installations would manage with a less powerful system.

It is a simple matter to move Mailtraq from one machine to another as your requirements change
