In the Internet, an email server or MAO mail server is software which transits electronic mail messages between a user computer and another computer via SMTP. The term mail server is also sometimes used in other contexts.
A Mail Server is a software program which receives mail and sends it to mailboxes on user computers or other mail servers. Mail servers usually run on a separate computer than the users and sometimes on a network of computers that are physically separated from each other. The mail servers may be physically located in an office, at a data center, or even on a public network. The server software is a single piece of software which is often installed on a computer and can be accessed by a client on another computer.
There are several types of mail servers, which are available for purchase. The most common and commonly used type is called a Domain Name System (DNS) server which can provide mail access through mail forwarding. Mail forwarding is a service that allows an individual user to log on to the mail server using his own IP address rather than the address of the user’s email account. Mail forwarding also provides protection to the users’ email account and prevents them from receiving spam mails that they do not want.
A virtual private server (VPS) is another type of mail server. This type of server is usually used as a part of a larger network. It is similar to an ordinary dedicated web hosting server. A VPS offers a good choice of benefits such as a better control panel, better security and more disk space and RAM.
Email relay software is another kind of mail server. This software is responsible for sending, receiving, and organizing incoming and outgoing emails.
Email Relay software is a software which sends messages through a third party service such as a local phone number, or internet dial up. It is used to provide secure email service to clients. Usually, email servers are connected to other mail servers and sometimes to other Internet-based servers as well.
MX mail servers are mail servers that use an email proxy server to relay email. The proxy server forwards emails to the email account of the client. This type of mail server has many advantages including its portability, higher speed of transmission, and the ability to access other mail servers at the same time.
SMTP mail servers are mail servers that send emails via secure connections such as the TCP/IP networks. These are generally used for large businesses. Most large companies have multiple email accounts in different mail servers. These servers are more reliable and faster than ordinary mail servers, and often come with several features such as a database and mailing lists.
A Shared Hosting Mail Server is a mail server which contains the mail accounts of more than one customer and a few users. The user can choose a server based on the user’s needs such as price, availability of bandwidth, and the amount of storage space required for email databases.
Email archiving and recovery is a process in which all messages from an email account are stored in the same physical or logical location so that when it is recovered, all the messages from that were lost are still present. This allows users to retrieve old messages by scanning their corresponding physical file folders and retrieving the necessary information from the files.
Email Archiving and recovery can be done through the use of archiving software. A user does not need to have the technical knowledge to create or maintain an email archiving system. Most email archiving solutions offer the user a simple command line interface to perform archiving and recovery of deleted messages.
