I moved to MacOS mail several years ago when my network provider went out of business as it ended up being cheaper to run my own mail box than pay someone else.Hi everyone. I am considering moving my email to my OSX Server. Is anyone out there running a Mail server willing to share their thoughts? Is it stable? Any issues with updates?
One other point worth making is that it is also worth investing in a decent UPS, as if your server goes down your mail bounces. I have my broadband and server on a UPS that can run for over 2 hours.
If your server is unavailable, mail should be queued at the sender for a period of time and retried at intervals. If memory serves me correctly, it will be queued for one day.
That is correct, you get about 1 days worth queued up before you start to loose it, but I also run a WEB site from my server so the UPS is pretty much essential.
An for mail the UPS is more useful when I am on the road or overseas, I travel a lot for work, nice to know that when I am having an email conversation with someone that my server is up and running
