I work at a small website design company, with no knowledge of servers.
We are planning on getting a web server running Apache. This needs to accommodate all our client websites, currently about 500MB but we would like a lot more than this with space for backups of these sites and other non-web client projects.
We also want to have a mail server, to offer clients numerous personal email addresses on numerous different domains via a webmail interface.
For our mail server we need:
- space for several thousands of mailboxes,
- perhaps 100MB space per mailbox,
- HTTP support
- built in virus/spam scanning
- email marketing functionality; sending out ecards etc to lists
Can anyone recommend any web and/or mail servers to suit this spec, or tell me what else I need to look out for/make sure of while I'm trying to choose someone to go with?
Thanks so much!
