An Open Discussion on Email Outsourcing

I’m going to start a post here discussing email outsourcing. In my particular case, I am a small agency with my own server currently hosting my own Web sites and development work. What I would like to do is begin hosting my client Web sites — I benefit here because I control the platform, have flexibility with what I can and can’t do on the server, and the billing would help offset the cost of the machine and it’s location at my colocation facility.

What I’m starting to realize is that I don’t want to be maintaining an email server. So, this is where this blog post comes in. I’m going to most likely look to outsource email, while still hosting my client’s and my own Web sites and Web applications. What I find and my evenual course of action; I will document here.
