Big boss wants to move our POP3 in house. I have 60-80 employees who like to send crazy huge files all the time and we use standard POP3 hosted by a 3rd party. We want more control and faster response time, so in house hosting seems like a good idea. What would you suggest? I don’t care about SMTP – we use IIS to forward all our shit to a smarthost. I don’t care about IMAP. What I do care is working POP and some sort of webmail solution.
What do you use for email at your work? What would you pitch to your boss?
I could implement something real quick with Win2k3 and the windows POP3 service. Or I could bring in a Linux box running postfix, sendmail or whatnot.
The catch is that I will have to install, configure and maintain it. So I want a robust solution, but one that that won’t drive me completely insane during config and maintenance tasks.
