Secondary MX Services
The backup for your mail server: reliable reception even when offline!
The service allows you to receive email messages even if your mail server (hosted by us or others) is down due to failure or maintenance. Once the main server is restored, messages will be delivered from the secondary MX server to the primary mail server.
The service is ideal for those who need to receive their emails with a high level of certainty. In fact, the secondary MX server begins to work when the mail server of your domain is off-line or is slow to respond. In these cases, the secondary MX server receives the emails in place of the primary server and, when the primary server comes back on-line, it delivers them to it. In this way, even if the primary server is unavailable for a long time, no messages are lost.
Another important feature of our secondary MX service is the geographical redundancy with respect to the primary mail server (the mail server and the mx server are located in geographically different locations), therefore reducing the chance of service interruption due to external agents. The secondary MX services, in fact, are provided by our data center in Rome, while the Mail Server services are provided by our data center in Florence.
