    Hello :)

    A reasonably good server configuration will be sufficient if you intent it only for email marketing. But the major concern will be the possibility of RBL listing and IP reputation damages as there is a high possibility for spam markings. Do talk with your host and check whether they support regular delivery of such volume of emails. Some hosts tend to deny but there are DCs which permit email marketing. Once the host is selected, you can check them about the HW configuration.

    Hello Fred

    yes i plan to use it only for marketing, email are direct marketing for Summits and Conferences though existing cliestn DB so there shold be no Problem with RBL and host, the only question is with HW requirements for the server so it can handle such a load

    Hello
    Unfortunately I can't provide you an exact configuration. Normally there won't be much requirements for high computing power due to the static nature of the content and hence a basic or standard dedicated server would be fine for CPU and RAM requirements . However if you are sending images as attachments, there needs to be good bw and the HD size depends on your data.

    Hello,

    It's difficult to estimate the server hardware requirements for this type of scenario, as mentioned in the previous response. You may want to setup a test run on the server first, to see how much email traffic it can handle.

    Thank you.
