Hello. I am setuping up an email service and was wondering if anyone knew of any hosts that have servers with high storage? I was wondering for an email service what do you think I need the most of? Like RAM, CPU Speed, ect...? I will obvisouly need alot of bandwidth, and storage of course to hold email. Also a high speed connection. What do you think I need? Anyone know of any good email servers? Also, I will need backups of some sort. What types of backups are the best? Also, what are the fastest type of harddrives? Please post your offers. Do any host offer external storage? Thanks Kyle
I can give you all that for cheaper than anyone else, with 6 months free, no setup fees, a money back guarantee, 24/7 dedicated support... oh yeah, by the end of the day!
Seriously, for email you need lots of ram and disk space, processor is important too, but a dual Xeon 1.8 would be more than enough. Bandwidth is cheap enough (see your cogent post) and backups are usually included on managed servers.
My prognosis, web server, mail server, storage area network. If you get to be as big as hotmail, you can scale to multiple web or mail servers, all connected to the SAN.
Or, you could just forget it because there are 321,243,529,354 free mail services and unless you have some earth shattering marketing skills/plan, your $.0000005 per impression advertising won’t really pay off!
Unless you are going to charge for email... wait, people can use the 321,243,529,354 other free mail services...
