I am looking for a mailing solution for a couple of domains I am managing.
Most domains have 1 or more email accounts that is used (by humans) to send and receive email. This would be no problem for MiaB I guess and to have the DNS configured such that everything except mail.domain.com is redirected to the ‘main’ web server. This is mostly friends-and-family stuff
However, I am also running 1 fairly big Ruby on Rails site in production, which sends around ~2k-5k emails with attachments a month (invoice pdfs). I am currently using a paid SMTP service for this.
Would MiaB be suited for this? What would be a good way to allow my users to send newsletter style bulk emails? Cycle through the recipients and fire off a single email per address? Is there anything I need to be concerned about regarding spam and blacklists with sending through MiaB compared to my current SMTP payserver?
EDIT: The rest of the email accounts on that domain are all managed by GMail. Is it possible to keep it that way? So firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com will still be able to send and receive through GMail while firstname.lastname@example.org is used by my webserver to send emails through MiaB.
Might be beyond your scope, but on the webserver end, is there a preference to have Rails send directly through MiaB’s SMTP port, or to have Rails relay to the system’s sendmail, and have that configured for use with MiaB on a remote address?
Finally, the FAQ mentions to avoid .nl domains since they required 2 NS. Most my domains are .nl though, but I think it is no problem to enter the same NS twice. Are there any other concerns?
