# Email Servers
Email servers are specialized servers that facilitate the sending, receiving, and storage of email messages. They handle the behind-the-scenes tasks involved in email communication, ensuring that emails are reliably delivered and stored until recipients access them.
PanelAlpha currently supports two types of email servers, these are: Zimbra and Mailcow. Here you will only find a quick overview of the email servers configuration section. Specific details on these two server types can be found in the dedicated sections under Email Server Connections.
