Hi all,

We are a small business in the UK using Kerio as our mail server. All has been working well, but recently we have been having trouble with our SMTP relay.

Can anyone recommend a decent no frills relay that works well with Kerio? We are just sending company mail and not any bulk or mailing lists.

I have tried Mailjet so far but it just seems a bit finicky and I am getting some weird problems that I didnt have before.

Thanks

Please forgive me if the answer is obvious, but why not just relay through your ISP?

Hi,

I currently am using the ISPs relay but recently there has been some major trouble so I have been tasked with finding a decent alternative.

I can't recommend any relay as we don't use one. Is there anything that prevents you from sending directly, without any relay at all?

The only time I relay indirectly (ie through our ISP) is when the destination wants to see rDNS entries (which we have) and ours aren't good enough for some reason. In this case it's verizon.net and a small firm that insists our info isn't correct.

I just relay through Comcast's server which doesn't require authentication and all is well.

If I had to relay through a server requiring authentication, I'd route my messages through a local SMTP server that supported it and on to my ISP.

But, 99+% of the time, we relay directly.

Cheers,
Jon

We relay through Symantec Cloud (messagelabs) in the UK. It's a few pounds per user but is very reliable. You could look at a few other anti-virus/spam services which would also do the job.

Hope that helps

Just the fact that it seems that our IP although static, appears as dynamic to some blacklists. I cannot afford to have mail go missing or returned. I would rather send through someone larger who have it all setup already.
