    MXroute - Email Hosting - $40/2years

    jarjar Provider
    edited September 2016 in Offers

    Hey everyone!

    This last spring I ran a special of $40 for 2 years service (recurring) with 40GB of email storage, unlimited domains, unlimited email accounts. It was incredibly popular and, when it ran out of stock, people continually asked me to bring it back. For the time being, it has no stock limit and I have no idea when this plan is going to be cut off. It's massive popularity makes it a bit difficult to tune the stock to zero, despite planning to do so multiple times.

    So here's a few of the features of MXroute:

    • IMAP/SMTP/POP3
    • Plus address aliasing ([email protected])
    • Spammy neighbor doesn't impact you at all
    • cPanel control panel (Why cPanel? How are you unique?)
    • Support... we offer it
    • MailChannels for incredibly consistent delivery
    • Daily off-site backups
    • Servers physically overseen in local datacenter
    • RAID10 on all servers for protection against drive failure

    Here's what I'm offering:

    • 40GB Storage
    • Unlimited Domains
    • Unlimited Email Accounts
    • $40 for two years (recurring)

    Click here to order.

      As a side note, to reference recent downtime: Tested fire drill today that resulted in 1m21s downtime corrected fully by automation. The manual half-assed recovery that took place this last Sunday was based on a plan that was clearly flawed and has now been taken out of the playbook.

      Do you actually have enough disk space for all the email accounts ("dedicated disk space") as of this moment, or do you gradually add it over time as more and more email gets stockpiled?

      I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
      Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

      I oversell disk space massively. It's incredibly successful and helps me keep the prices down. It works though. Take this server, for example, that I already consider fully sold to capacity (capacity meaning I've oversold it to the point I'm comfortable stopping):

      Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
                            3.6T  1.7T  1.8T  50% /
      tmpfs                  16G     0   16G   0% /dev/shm
      /dev/md0              477M   84M  368M  19% /boot

      But if you ever need it, you know it'll be there without any issue :)

      Worst case scenario I do a live migrate of half that data with no downtime and no one even notices. I just migrated Ocean the other day and not one person noticed ;)

      Exactly, I have the 20GB / year plan from BlackFriday and if the control panel is correct I use 22MB...

      The way Jarland does his "overselling" (still 50% free disk) it's absolutely freaking fine :p

      Wasn't judging anything by asking the question, just curious in general.

      Always happy to answer :)

      New server, by the way:

      Filesystem               Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
      /dev/mapper/openvz-vz    3.6T  238G  3.2T   7% /vz

    • Any chance of a personal plan? I've got a single domain and 1GB would do? Anything like $5/yr?

      Honestly it's just not worth the connection to dovecot/exim. That was a problem I had with the $5/year promo before. Too much overall strain on physical resources due to the connections themselves to justify it.

      Having been using MXroute for both business and personal use for almost one year, would vote 10/10 for both the service and support. Jarland is so helpful even if there was an issue on our side, highly recommend them!

      May I ask a question about spf records here?

      Sure :)

    • Thanks!

      If I use different mechanism in different part of spf record.

      For example:

      My domain is using v=spf1 include:spf.example.com ip4:1.1.1.1 ~all

      spf.example.com is using v=spf1 ip4:2.2.2.2 -all

      or

      My domain is using v=spf1 include:spf.example.com ip4:1.1.1.1 -all

      spf.example.com is using v=spf1 ip4:2.2.2.2 ~all

      Which one would work, - or ~?

    • jarjar Provider

      hiphiphip0 said: Which one would work, - or ~?

      All of these examples should work. The difference between - and ~ I will explain:

      The "-all" means "My email should come from one of the previously stated locations. If it does not you should not accept this email."

      The "~all" means "My email should come from one of the previously stated locations. If it does not, do whatever you want."

      I didn't make it clear. spf.example.com is included in my domain's spf record, would spf.example.com's "~all" override my domain's "-all" ?

    • I def plan to use MXRoute in the future :)

    • xaitmixaitmi Member
      edited September 2016

      MXRoute is awesome.

      However, it would be AMAZING if there was an option where I could just forward all this junk to a certain email address and it would automatically get added to the spam filters so they never get through ever again. Like [email protected] or something.

      http://i.imgur.com/BOTE2T0.png

      Right now I just login to the cPanel thing and add each sender domain to the spam filter so it discards them in the future, it's very time consuming, and a pain in the ass.

      What do you think @jarland ?

      Before I used MXRoute I used to use GoogleApps and this kinda stuff would NEVER get through and make it to my inbox. :(

      Thanked by 1tr1cky
    • xaitmixaitmi Member

      Also I can imagine a script being made to handle the request above.

      For example

      cpanel username xaitmi

      my email [email protected]

      spam email [email protected]

      When [email protected] receives the forwarded email, it finds the account the email address is associated by looking up the email address the email was forwarded from ([email protected]), and locating the account, which in this case would be "xaitmi".

      It adds the email address of the spam ([email protected]) to the blocklist for all of the domains associated with xaitmi's account so xaitmi never receives emails from the junk sender again.

      Of course, it can be made much more advanced in the future and give users the option of what to do when the mail is received, by default just discard but other options can be added as well.

      You can move to the Junk folder and it does somewhat learn from it. The problem is, bayesian learning with SpamAssassin is not as effective as it used to be. The latest spam trends are simply too human-like for many algorithms that worked for years.

      I'll be the first to say that Google has the best filters around. I'm not as good as they are at filtering, but I'll keep working on it.

      Make sure you don't use a catchall address, the lack of a catchall address is where 99% of spam is eliminated.

    • I've a zero experience in email marketing

      So i have only a few questions :
      Can i use this service as a smtp for my web hosting companies ?
      Can i send emails as an " Email Marketing " ?

      Good luck with your offer @jarland : )

      I guess, while you could technically, you shouldn't do so. Depending on the volume, this would just cost him money in the long term. :P
      Maybe you should go directly with a service like MailChannels, Mailgun, you-name-it...

      Absolutely, you can just use our mail servers in the configuration for it. We support IMAP/POP3/SMTP which should be all that your webmail client needs :)

    • @jarland said:

      Great, any particular webmail client you recommend? roundcube, squirelmail, etc? I want to my user to be able to manage his own password, mail filtering, etc through the webmail client.

      Also regarding plus addressing, if i understand correctly, you have already setup this feature so the email will be dropped to a folder specific to that alias being used, is it configurable? I want all email for user+anything will arrive to user's inbox instead. I will using it for gitlab replay by email feature.
