- Unlimited Accounts — Add as many email accounts as you need. No limits, no restrictions.
- Unlimited Alternate Addresses — Each user can have unlimited alternate addresses, catch common misspellings or use alternate forms of the user’s name.

- Secure IMAP — Your email remains on your server, sorted into folders of your choosing. Access your email from any device.
- Trusted SMTP — Your outgoing mail server has SPF and DKIM signatures so your mail doesn’t get classified as SPAM.
- SPAM Filtering — A high-performance filter screens your incoming email for SPAM. Known SPAM never hits your server, suspected SPAM goes into the “Junk” folder for you to review. The filter learns over time, simply move mail in to or out of the “Junk” folder to teach the filter.
- Server-Side Filtering — Create filter rules to automatically sort your incoming email.

Central Account Management – LDAP
Just like large enterprises use, all your user accounts are managed via a central LDAP server. Managers can create and edit user accounts in one location, and all of your servers share the same account information.
Your LDAP server provides:
- Unlimited Users — No limits on the number of users in your organization.
- Unlimited Groups — Organize your users into whatever groups fit your organization.
- Self-Service Portal — Users can manage their own personal information, or update their passwords by themselves.
Single Sign-On – SAML
A single-sign-on server gives all of your users a common login experience. Logging in to one server logs automatically logs them in to other services*.
Your Single Sign-On server provides:
- Two-Factor Authentication — Supports TOTP two-factor authentication (2FA) for extra security, using authenticators like Google Authenticator or Enpass.
- Industry Standard SAML — The most common form of secure Single Sign-On for maximum compatibility.
(* Most, but not all, services support Single Sign-On.)
DNS is the foundation of your presence on the Internet. Without DNS no one can find your servers. Having your own DNS server gives you complete control over how the rest of the world connects to you. Your DNS server is powered by BIND 9, the de facto standard for the Internet.
Your DNS server provides:
- Unlimited Domain Names — Host as many domain names as you want. Web traffic and emails sent to alternate domains get redirected to your primary domain. Great for capturing common misspellings.
- No Record Type Restrictions — Put any valid information in DNS that you need.
- DNSSEC Support — Ensures other DNS resolvers that your DNS information is genuine. Prevents DNS attacks.
- Global-Scale Reliability — Your primary DNS server is backed up by multiple servers from Cloudflare.
- DNS-over-HTTPS and DNS-over-TLS Servers — Provides secure connections to your DNS server for increased privacy when using the Internet. Requires client support.
(* Domain names must be purchased separately from a registrar of your choice.)
