    Default Postini

    Sounds great Andrew but how does it work in practice? Do we need to change the MX record or our domains to point to a different server or do users have to change the pop3 settings on their accounts?

    Thanks,
    Ben

    The MX records for the domains are changed (we do this for you).

    Is the $2/month, per email account / per domain / or per reseller account?

    One Postini account can be used to filter a single e-mail address with 5 e-mail aliases.

    It can be setup however you like. Each Postini account only has one set of filtering settings, etc. All spam and virus infected e-mails that are caught by the Postini account are only viewable by the single Postini user. So if you have all of your domains filtered through Postini, only you would be able to view the spam and virus infected e-mails for these domains in the Message Center and they would all be jumbled together.
    Would this be something we could offer our reseller account customers and they could pay the $2/month for their own domain(s)? This way they can administer their own filters?

    If we sign up for a postini account do we choose which domains to filter, and if so can we add additional domains at a later date. Or for that matter remove domains at a later date? Just trying to figure out how this thing will be administered.

    Or are we limited to how many postini accounts we can have on one reseller account?

    You can choose which domains to filter, but you have to let us know as only we have access to change these in the Postini system.

    You can purchase as many as you like. We give administrative access to one Postini account per customer which has the ability to manage settings for all other Postini accounts you may have.

    How does this work? The email is routed through Postini servers, filtered and then pushed back to dathorn?

    Do we need to contact you each time as we add or remove hosted domains in order to have the domains added or removed from the Postini account? I am asking about the option of having all domains included in one Postini account.
