Failed Email Deliveries : LUSENET : discussions : One Thread

I've experienced times when a sender advises me by phone of a submitted mail but I have not received it. They get 2 or 3 notifications of failure and then their ISP gives up. I found I had comms problems between my NT server and my ISP.

Thats resolved now but is there no ISP who will hold onto emails (even at a price) for me if they can't be delivered to my server?

This would be real neat.

It sounds like you might want someone to host your email for you, or provide email secondarying so that if a mail for your domain can't get through to your server, it goes somewhere else. Is this the sort of answer you wanted?

I think the answer is to look for email hosting companies. For example offer a "Secondary DNS and Mail Relay" service: cfid=25659&cftoken=93653413 which allows incoming "mail relay for upto 100 domains" for 20 (ex VAT per year).

There are probably other email hosting companies that do this. You might find a few with a search on Google like:

Yes, Michael, I think secondary-ing is the answer. My problem is don't know any UK ISPs or ASPs who are advertising that they support it or how much they would charge me.

Any ideas?
