|Re: [PLUG] Corporate email and webpage hosting provider?|
There is a new issue with many providers of email servers, in that many large sites will block a sender by IP address, and a hosting service's shared server may not be able to help getting blocked, because all it takes is one spammer signing up for the hosting service to get everyone on the IP tarnished and blocked. This DID happen to me with phpwebhosting.com through no fault of theirs. They have a workaround they say will work, but rather than implement it I took the easier route and redirected my email through comcast.net instead of phpwebhosting.com.

We have hosted our IMAP email and webpage in-house many years without a problem, but that means these disappear when the power to the building goes out. The recent ice storm took the company off the internet for nearly 5 days, which the owners have decided is unacceptable and they're willing to pay to guarantee that never happens again.The web page is a very simple html information sheet, nothing interactive. If that matters, it's designed/updated with Wordpress. We would have about 20 email boxes. We'd also be interested in calendaring.If anyone has any recommendations, positive or negative, about providers, please send them my way. Realistically, name recognition will be a factor, because of the "big = reliable" assumption.Thanks,
