I need someone with extensive knowledge of Mail Transfer
Agents (MTA), who's had experience with configuring servers
to send out massive amounts of personalized bulk email.
Also, you must know how to increase and maintain email
I estimate that I will be sending about 250,000 emails per
day. It is 100% double opt in and not spam.
Currently I am using Exim, and the php mail() function which
sends email at a rate of 3000 personalized emails per hour.
This obviously has to be imrpoved!
I was using qmail, but I had major deliverability problems,
and not that much increase in speed.
To summarize, your job is to
a) install or configure a solution that sends out at least
20,000 *personalized* bulk emails per hour, which is easily
accessible via php. 30,000/hour would be ideal, or even more
would be better! I have a dedicated server and can upgrade
it if needed.
b) install a script which will allow me to see how the
mailer is doing. That means I would like to know:
-how much email is being delivered and to which domains
-time in queue
-bounced emails (accessible via php script so I can prevent
bounced emails from being sent more mail)
In short, I need you to configure my server to send out tons
of personalized bulk mail.
I *will not* accept anyone who does not already have a lot
of experience with this, no exceptions!
Willing to pay for your expertise.
