    Default [SOLVED] POP and SMTP separated

    Hi there. Forgive me if this has been asked before, but some brief searching came up with nothing.

    I'll be moving our e-mail services from an external host to my internal ZCS server in the near future and I've got a question on setup. Right now, our external host has separate incoming and outgoing servers: pop.duratechindustries.net and mail.duratechindustries.net. That makes sense to me considering number of clients. Is there any reason why I should do the same thing for my internal ZCS server, with my measly 60 users? For that matter, I've already installed ZCS and use a singular URL for both POP and SMTP; what would it take to split them up?

    Thanks in advance!

    Why ? If your hardware is coping then leave them together. Unless you are going to really scale then it is not necessary.

    Question

    Again, I see my current host split up POP and MAIL (SMTP) and I can't help but wonder if I should. That's all. And if you'd split them up for scaling purposes, then I certainly don't need to.

    Then again, I was thinking to completely avoid the headache of running around to each workstation to change e-mail server settings. Some of my people are Territory Managers who don't call the central office "home," too.

    Still, that's what www.logmein.com is for, right?

    Thanks for the reply uxbod!
