Membuat mailserver dengan Merak Mail Server

| Posted in Linux Server, Merak Email Server, Project

Perusahaan di tempat aku menjadi konsultan Linux Engineer di India (IKON Ltd) baru saja membeli software Mail Server dengan produk Windows dan Linux. Software ini adalah Merak Mailserver yang sangat tangguh dan oke punya. Untuk Merak Mailserver versi Windows diinstall oleh staff nya di India. Sementara untuk yang Merak Mailserver versi Linux diserahkan ke saya untuk menginstall di salah satu servernya di Data Centre Calpop. Proses installnya dengan remote dari Jakarta. Server untuk Merak ini merupakan server ke 11 yang aku pegang sebagai Linux konsultannya. Merak mailserver yang dibeli merupakan IceWarp Professional Suite dengan komponen didalamnya Mailserver, WebMail, Anti-Spam Module, Anti-Virus Module, Web Server Module, Migration Tool. Ini software sudah mahal memang canggih dibanding software-software gratisan lainnya dengan Linux Based. Merak tidak hanya software untuk email system tetapi juga untuk business communications platform.

Berikut proses instalasi dan konfigurasi Merak Mailserver versi Linux :

Sistem operasi menggunakan Linux CentOS 5.2 :

[root@mail gtoms]# tar zxvf merak-9.3.2_RHEL5.2.tar.gz
[root@mail gtoms]# cd merak-9.3.2_RHEL5.2
[root@mail merak-9.3.2_RHEL5.2]# ls
INSTALL install.sh LICENSE Makefile Makefile.README merak-image-9.3.2_RHEL5.2.tar
[root@mail merak-9.3.2_RHEL5.2]#

Saya edit dahulu file install.sh untuk menyesuaikan path : /sbin/service dan /sbin/chkconfig

Kemudian memulai instalasi :

[root@mail merak-9.3.2_RHEL5.2]# ./install.sh——EULA ——

Untuk administrasi Merak Mailserver melalui website :
http://mail.qotexxx.info:32000/admin

Untuk administrasi melalui linuxnya :
Starting Merak server and/or services:
[linux]# ./merakd—start
Start merakd and automatically starts all services, except PHP, which
is started when first HTTP request arrives.
[linux]# ./merakd—start control|gw|im|pop3|smtp|all
Start selected service or all services. This command will not start merakd if it is not already running. If control
was started, it will start PHP on first HTTP request.
Stopping Merak server and/or services:
[linux]# ./merakd—stop
Stops all running services, stops merakd and also PHP. This is command for complete shutdown of Merak
server.
[linux]# ./merakd—stop control|gw|im|pop3|smtp|all
Stops selected service or all services. This command will cause to stop PHP together with control and will not
stop merakd.

Selesai. Ternyata semakin mahal softwarenya, semakin cepat pula instalasinya….

WOW,

Jangan2 yang ng-design merak nih orang indonesia yang kerja di IceWarp Ltd. Tuh namanya diambil dari burung yang ada di indonesia.

Keliatannya merak di buat atas dasar Red Hat Enterprise, tuh ada tulisan RHEL. CMIIW.

Salam,

mas gultom,
sayangnya tidak dijelaskan kelebihan merak mail secara lebih spesifik. apa dengan postfix saja belum cukup tangguh mas ?

Postfix kan fungsinya sebagai MTA saja. Kalau Merak didalamnya sudah di isi macem2 seperti :
Secure email service
-Integrated antivirus and antispam
-Web access to email
Collaboration features with Outlook plugin
-Synchronization of wireless devices and web calendars
Realtime messaging
-IP telephony with PSTN gateway
Builtin web server
-File exchange
-dsb…

wah.. kalau merak dengan kemampuan seperti itu sih emang bener canggih mas.. seperti yang nyetting ..

harganya brp ya mas

untuk masalah harga bisa melalui email mas ke henry@gultom.or.id
