Question

IIS is the name of Microsoft’s Web Server. It is now supplied as standard with Windows operating systems and provides standard web services. IIS is not available on Unix systems and is frequently the target of malicious attacks.

Answer

No, IIS is not required for users to use GMS or GMS Webmail via a browser.

All Gordano’s products include their own web server which is used for administration and by the user interface. This allows Gordano to provide a highly responsive and rich interface for users of GMS Webmail. By not using Microsoft’s IIS, Gordano can be sure that its products can provide a secure and consistent service on any operating system (e.g. Windows NT 3.51 thru XP, Solaris, Linux, etc.).
