Nginx is open source software for web serving, reverse proxying, caching, load balancing, media streaming, and more. In addition to its HTTP server capabilities, NGINX can also function as a proxy server for email IMAP, POP3, and SMTP and a reverse proxy and load balancer for HTTP, TCP, and UDP servers.

Nginx is known for being the fastest web server. The softwares structure is asynchronous and event-driven. Which enables the processing of many requests at the same time. NGINX is highly scalable as well, meaning that its service grows along with its clients traffic.

Distributing the load among mail servers
