Topic: Bulk Mail Send...

Hey,

I'd like to provide some mailboxes to a customer of my company using iRedMail.

The customer is a middle-range marketing agency whose needs involve a bulk mail send service: they often send about 5000+ mail for contest/lottery/promotion communications. They currently use a marketing software which directly connect to the smtp server (iRedMail in this scenario) to send communications to the selected users.

Will iRedMail be annoyed by a 5000+ mail send sequence? Can I adapt its settings to grant best performances?

Thanks in advance

Thanks!
So the 3 tips are:
[setup a local DNS server to speed up DNS lookup]: it's ok.
[reduce MySQL queries]: I'm using LDAP, should I do something else?
[bypass anti-spam, anti-virus for outgoing mails]: Can I apply the policy to specific user only? I really don't want to disable controls on normal user accounts...

I didn't try it before, you need to do some research. Sorry.

LOL... I guess I have to look for the same options into LDAP settings... Sorry, I've been using MySQL backend for years and I'm not used to LDAP...
