Outsource SmarterMail?
Idea shared by Steve Guluk - September 9 at 1:22 PM
Proposed
Not sure if anyone here would relate to this question but what about outsourcing SmarterMail?

I run the Enterprise version and have ~250 accounts with maybe 25 domains. Rackspace (where I host my Dedicated Server) is now threatening to raise rates on longstanding customers unless we sign multi-year new contracts. I believe this to be somewhat insulting to those of us that have been with then for 10+ years.

So, I am considering other hosting solutions and most of the better options are not on Windows Servers. This leaves me to consider leasing a separate Windows server OR consider using another company to outsource email.

One many concern is that we don't want to lose any current clients due to low quality outsources services and also want to move prior emails to the new location.

Anyone else done this and had successful results?

Hi Linda,
Please post some pricing based on the noted account qtys.
Also what anti-spam is included or any additional costs that need be factored in.

I am still researching Linux dedicated servers as they seem to be significantly less costs then Windows servers which still being able to handle the core PHP and MySQL we use in our websites.

Hi Steve. We have a lot of different options and price ranges depending on certain factors. If you would like to provide me with your email address, I can work with you directly to quote you for what you are needing/wanting. Linux based servers are nice indeed, but depending on which mail server software you choose, they can be a bit difficult to manage if you are not very familar with Unix or the software in question. Also, most software for a Unix based system is open source and even though that is wonderful, you may not receive the level support that you may need. Just my 2 cents :)
