Project Description


We are looking to set up our own STMP relay for sending bulk marketing emails.

We will be sending a serious amount of emails (at least 3 million emails/month) using a desktop email client. Therefore, the server needs to configured accordingly. At this point, we will be choosing the hosting (hosting provider, dedicated or semi-dedicated server, cPanel, WHM, etc.) and any other properties (MTA, MDA, softwares, etc.) based on the recommendation of the freelancer hired.

In addition to this; DKIM, SPF, Sender ID and Domainkey settings are required for properly authenticating the emails sent. SMTP authentication (with username/password) is also a must in order to keep the SMTP as a closed relay.

On top of these, we will also need the below properties:
- Open/click tracking and rates
- Unsubscription management
- Bounce management
- Multiple IPs against being blacklisted

If you are an expert in Bulk Email marketing and can set up an email server with the properties listed above, please make your mid.
