Hello,
I had 4 dedicated server, and i wanna ask some question for the experts here.
I have dating website, and i have a lot of activities, this activities send mails to the members:
- A send to B messages, B get message to his mail.
- A like B, B get message to his email.
- A visit B page, B get message to his email.
- Sending massive mails to the members (More than 80,000 members) every 2 days
- And more...

So, i but a service from some of email markiting (http://www.madmimi.com), and it's cost a lot.
I am thinking to setup a dedicated server that can sending those emails.

- Can i setup one of my dedicated server (I can buy new one) that can send those massive emails and reach the inbox (Not the spam)??
- If yes, can you please explain ?

Best regards,
Sam

Setting up your own email server for the first time can be pretty tricky. Personally I like to use a Linux server and qmail with the addition of SPAMDYKE. There are some excellent scripts to setup the server for you and include anti-spam and anti-relay settings at the following web site:

The documentation is excellent and there are scripts for various versions of Linux.
