Do I really need third party email server?
Posted on 2012-04-10
I have a technician performing a configuration on a windows 2008 server with Plesk panel and Im wondering wheter I really need to license third party application, like MailEnable.
The server wont host any mailboxes at all, neither will it relay incoming messages from external servers. All it does mail related is to capture users comments, registration data, etc, saves it to db and sends a copy to the administrator's mailbox and confirmation messages to the visitor.
Do I really need an expensive application for that purpose or windows 2008 server can handle the task keeping relayer and spammers out?
