I would appreciate the inclusion of the following features in the upcoming SmarterMail release:
1. Email Forwarding Count: Have forwarded messages tally towards the hourly limit for outgoing emails. For instance, if a user receives 5,000 emails within an hour, and these are forwarded to their Gmail address, it should permit the forwarding of all 5,000 emails. Last month, due to MailChannels, our SmarterMail server incurred an overage charge of $749 from a single mailbox on an account that forwards emails.
2. Outgoing SMTP Gateway Limitations: Introduce the capability to impose restrictions, such as disallowing mail forwarding from utilizing an outgoing SMTP relay. This feature could have prevented the issue we encountered with MailChannels, as mentioned above.
