How our Universal SMTP Servers work

The picture at the left is one of our many modern rackmount servers that provides the SMTP services to thousands of our customers.

We own and operate about 350 of those servers located in our multiple data centers spread throughout the globe. Our servers run 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in a controlled and secure environment.

It's what we call our Universal SMTP Servers and that's exactly what they do. Their unique job is to send emails. That's it.

But they will send emails from *ANY* internet connection and from anywhere in the world. Now why is our service called Port 587, you may ask? It's very simple-- we use port 587 to send emails through our network.

Most ISPs today use port 25 which happens to be the most abused port by email spammers. It's so abused in fact that some ISPs have blocked port 25 from their network, further compounding the issue.

In contrast to that, port 587 requires SMTP authentication with a secure user ID and password. Once you've signed up for our service, we provide you with a unique user ID and password that will authorize you to send emails anywhere in the world, REGARDLESS of the ISP's connection or in what country you happen to be in. It's as simple as that.

And here's another issue that people on the road face all the time, and you're probably aware of it already. The great majority of ISPs today won't allow you to send email attachments more than a mere 4 or 5 megs in size. Our Universal SMTP Servers will allow you to send attachments up to 60 megs in size! On a typical WiFi or broadband connection, it will take you about 2 minutes to send an attachment that is up to 60 megs in size.

That's how fast and reliable our SMTP service is. But there's even more features that our service will provide you with, and you need to read about them.
