What are the risk of having a mail server?
Posted on 2006-07-19
My management would like to monitor our staff's email content and traffic, thus one of my suppliers proposed to setup a mail server in our office to cater for such purposes. His proposal is to use Merak Mail Server. Being a management team member, i would like to know what are the potential risks and dangers or hassles of accepting such proposal. Our comapny currently has about 40+ internet users, mainly using internet for emails, VOIP, and net surfing. We do not have IT personnel in our company and the email solution we are using currently is webmail. At the moment, we only control our internet traffic using router software. We are running on broadband and fixed IP.
