Continuing the discussion from
Using a : secondary mail server only for smtp
Is it the compulsion in the newer version of phplist (able to use only one smtp)?
I was trying to google and found this post (link below) from the old forums.
(is there specific way we could achive this since the directions in the above link seems broken)
We have a list of more than 100000 subscribers and are planning to move to phplist.
Could i get more directions on ip or domain getting black listed by using from single ip or smtp.
I was thinking if we could use multiple ip’s or smtp to send out mails so to improve delivery rate and also not get blacklisted (couldent find anything specific in forums here).
Thank you for help and directions.
phplist doesn’t support cycling through a set of smtp servers nor sending concurrently to more than one server.
Any topics in the old forums are going to be out-of-date now.
It’s not my area of knowledge but I think that these functions are best implemented in the local mail server (postfix, exim, etc).
It shouldn’t be necessary to use more than one mail server.
If you do decide to go this route anyway, I highly suggest documenting every little step you take. A proper implementation of a round robin would require a hack that would be overwritten with the next PHPList update AND/OR server update.
When that happens, you’ll have to set it up all over again.
Thanks for setting up as a linked topic
@duncanc - good moding!
Thanks for your reply.
We will stick to simgle smtp to start wilth but in case we decide to try multiple then will make sure to document it in detail as
My only concern here is the delivery rate since the server is new, any suggetion?
