Email system for an educational institution

By thefornax ·
Hello, i need to setup an email system for an educational institution, so that the end users can use this email service. The website of this institution is hosted @ hostmonster.com . Now is there any service that can be installed at hostmonster? Something like microsoft excahnge server? But i guess exchange server is very expensive, so i am looking for an open source or low cost solution. I dont have any kind of hosting hardware. So please help me out. Thanks.

Why not use Gmail with Google?

Get Gmail:
https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin?service=mail&passive=true&rm=false&continue=http%3A%2F%2Fmail.google.com%2Fmail%2F%3Fui%3Dhtml%26zy%3Dl&bsv=1k96igf4806cy&ltmpl=default&ltmplcache=2
through Google and see if that helps you. Though you will be limited unless you have your own webmail server.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

Are you talking about the using free Google Apps?

by thefornax In reply to Why not use Gmail with Go ...

I can use google apps, but the problem is i wont have any control over the spam filtering options. I dont want the students who signup to misuse the mail service. I want to add some kind of spam filtering. I am thinking of postini.
