  • Mail Server

Internet Technology is essential in today’s modern society, especially for firm’s conducting their day-to-day business. The internet has brought with it various forms of communication such as e-mailing. Unlike previous traditional forms of communication, e-mailing means the sender can send their information to the receiver quickly, receive a rapid response, and it does not matter what part of the world either of them reside in.

E-mailing involves the sending of text files, digital photos, audio and video files over the internet or intranet. Companies today take advantage over e-mailing systems which they employ within their organization, therefore employees and management are able to send important documents, memos, schedule meetings and other vital business information via the company intranet.

Since e-mailing has been incorporated in most businesses, it means that staff would need access to their own email account, and specifically, their own professional, company e-mail addresses. Linux Now provides companies with mail servers that will allow for company e-mail addresses such as yourname@yourcompany.com.au for individual users or sales@yourcompany.com.au for general usage. This is much better than a simple gmail.com or hotmail.com account, given that with a mail server you could do advanced e-mail handling. For instance if an email is sent to sales@yourcompany.com.au, you can automatically forward it to more people within the organization.

With Linux Now's mail servers, a company can benefit from the ability to create as many email addresses as they would like, plus use as much disk space as they require. Our Linux based mail servers include an easy to use web interface, and users can access their emails from anywhere around the world as long as they have access to a web browser. Also, mail servers are physically controlled strictly by the said company, thereby ensuring that third parties do not gain access to confidential information.

Linux Now offers a first-rate customer support service for clients that require assistance in operating their new systems or for maintenance after installation to ensure the system is operating at peak efficiency. Contact us for more information on the benefits Linux Now’s mail servers.
