I’m researching software for my company and I have a few questions.
I work for a campground. We do reservations over the phone that get entered into our computer system. We have 6 computers that do reservations, all connected to a single server. Our system is not connected to the internet except once a day when we dial up to do various end-of-day processes. We are looking into changing the way our email confirmations work.
What we’d like to do is have a mail server that queues messages (send by standard email clients on the 6 reservation computers) and sends them in one batch at the end of the day over our dial-up. Is this a difficult or problematic setup? Do you have a better idea on how we should implement this?
Any recommendations for mail server software for the local network?
Keep in mind that the dial-up is dynamic-IP and is intermittent (once daily). The mail server does not need to handle incoming mail at all, just sending email confirmations.
We look forward to having an always on high(er) speed connection but it’s likely that it’ll be about 3 years before that’s possible.
