Heavy-Duty Email Requirements

My client is a financial services firm with very large email requirements.
Hundreds of messages per day both in and out, with attachments in the 1MB to
10MB range. Can anyone suggest a US-based hosting service that would be
appropriate and cost effective? HTTP activity is nominal.

Thanks,
Ray

That really isn't large. The company I work for has inbound of between
56,000 to 65,000 a day. Almost any of the more established providers should
be able to handle several hundred a day. I, for instance, have an account at
Lunarpages.com and they are very good about delivering all 800 or so inbound
messages I get if I turn off the spam filtering.

If you're going for a virtual host, I can recommend BlueVirtual.com from
personal experience, I've been with them since 1998, when the owners
worked for a different company. I go through tens of thousands of emails
per day (mostly spam, they offer SpamAssassin on all POP3 accounts). Not
making a dime for the referral. Just a very satisfied customer who still
pays them for virtual hosting despite having unrestricted free access to
4 dedicated servers at work.

If you're looking for a dedicated server solution - which a "financial
services firm" can probably more than afford, especially if you're
reselling it to them at a profit like you should be, right ;) - I suggest
phatservers.com. Their fees are reasonable, they have a phat pipe, and
something that's important when it comes to email, they aren't in any
RBLs/DNSBSLs like the "cheapie" dedicated providers (e.g. RackS[\w+])
often are. Nonprofit mention from a satisfied customer here, too.
