Rollernet.us as secondary mx

Post by ric melia » 2007-05-17 15:50

I stumbled across http://rollernet.us/ as a free secondary mx service today.

Just wondering if anyone's using / used it and if so, is it reliable?

I've used them for a couple of years now. Most of the mail that I get through my secondary MX is of the SPAM nature, however, Rollernet provides a decent service.

do you have their anti-spam features turned on?

I do have their anti-spam features turned on, yes.

I also have ASSP running on the front end of my hMailServer for my home mail server.

One slightly annoying thing with Rollernet, is that you have to load a usermap for their secondary SMTP. If your user list changes frequently, this could be a problem.

really, i got the impression that the usermap was an optional thing. wouldn't be an issue for me though luckily.

thanks for the feedback

I use the free Rollernet service, and as near as I can tell, the usermap is not an optional component.

if you purchase the service, maybe it's different.

I use the freebie service, and the usermap is completely optional. On some domains I leave it enabled, and others I leave it disabled.

I haven't had any problems as such with Spam coming from rollernet, but I have played around with the RBL settings, and seem to have an OK solution that prevents spam.

I've been using the paid service for about 2 months now and it's great. The only thing is that I am getting a few bounced messages a day back to rollernet because ASSP is rejecting the messages. You just have to configure ASSP so bounced messages don't get sent back because it is against their "backscatter" policy.
