Rackspace email hosting


IMAP Tools
Ray, are you asking about Rackspace hosting individual accounts or as a provider of a hosted e-mail service for a company?


IMAP Tools
Earlier this year I attended a presentation by Rackspace on their hosted Email service.

The technical part of their offering, the architecture --- MTAs, LDAP, IMAP/POP/Webmail, anti-spam/anti-virus, migration tools,etc -- looked good. I did not see any problems with that.

However, their per-user pricing was very high, much higher than other companies which we looked at.

What other companies were you looking at?

I have a client interested in great uptime and support that doesn't want to pay the Google Apps for Business pricing.

Email within their BlueHost VPS is down too much and they want to move it somewhere else.
