Emailing from a separate server
Hi,

My server is in a shared environment and the host has strict outgoing email limits intended to protect all users from spammers signing up and abusing the system. I can send no more than 20 emails a minute, or 1000 per day from my account. If my forum is successful, I gather I would exceed the per minute restriction and eventually the daily limit. I don't want to switch hosts though, they are really good with support and maintaining their servers.

I notice that the Forum will allow smtp emailing. I'm not completely educated on this, but does it mean I could have a separate email server and use that server to handle all outgoing mail from my forum?

I hope I explained and asked this right.

Steve
