Mail Server

Recommended Posts

I am developing an application that will, among other things, send email at the rate of several thousand per day. My application is on a virtual host during development, but will be moved to a dedicated box. My understanding is that sending too much mail from the virtual server will result in it being treated as a source of spam. I have been told that I need to use a mail server that will 'certify' that my application is not a source of spam.

 

My questions are:

 

1. Does TCH offer a mail server that will suit my needs described?

2. If I have a dedicated host, would the server be installed in the same box?

3. Are there any other considerations that I am missing?

4. Am I confused?

 

Thanks,

Jack

Looking at your volume of mailing, it can only be accommodated on a dedicated server which will have the entire server resources exclusive for your account. All servers have exim mailserver pre-installed and its configuration can be relaxed to allow the huge volume or emails that you plan to send, as our default server prep puts in limitations on the total number of emails that can be sent out per account. The restriction is in place to ensure that the server does not gets tagged as spam source.

Does this mean that if I change my hosting account from virtual to dedicated, then my dedicated box can have this relaxed configuration on its mailserver? If so, how do I prevent it from being tagged as a spam source?

Yes, you would have to move to a dedicated box to get the relaxed rules. How to prevent yourself from becoming flagged as a spammer would be not to send spam.

 

You become tagged as a spammer when someone reports you for sending unsolicited email. If you are running a mailing list each member should sign up to receive the email. There should also be ways for user to opt out of receiving mailings. And you MUST honor those requests.
