Mail::Toaster Installation
or Upgrades - $100hr

Typical upgrade or install takes two hours ($200)


This takes a pristine FreeBSD server and transforms it into a full featured mail server including SMTP, POP3, IMAP, Webmail, Account Management, Virus & Spam filtering, extensive log processing, pretty graphs, and more!

All installations include a 30 day warranty. If something that should work doesn't (and you didn't cause it), we'll fix it at no charge.

Upgrade pricing assumes a speedy internet connection, the OS is no more than 2 major revisions old, and . For example, FreeBSD 4.9 is currently released, typical upgrade pricing assumes at least 4.7. OS upgrades are separate (if required).



FreeBSD Upgrades

Upgrade FreeBSD 4.4+ to latest FreeBSD stable release. If your OS is more than two releases behind, this may be required. OS upgrades can be done in place with only a couple minutes of down time.
