The challenge: an on-premises, time saving email solution
Before using Halon, bhosted had a spamfilter on each server, all manually installed and maintained. As this was not kept up-to-date, they ran into issues with too much spam getting through. Their IP address were also blacklisted from time to time. As this could happen on any of the servers, it was always time consuming to fix it and route mail using another IP address.
”The new solution had to be able to route mail to different mailservers and be flexible to change that routing on the fly when domains are moved from one server to another server”, says Marc van de Geijn.
The goal was to save time and have the solution kept up to date automatically and a big plus would be to keep the solution on premises.
The solution: Halon email software
”We at bHosted.nl like to build our own solutions for situations like this. But after evaluating Halon we noticed that Halon had created the solution that would fit our needs perfectly. We could never have built a solution like this on our own.”
Marc and his colleagues considered and evaluated other solutions before finally choosing Halon. But it was the flexibility of HSL, the Halon Scripting Language, and the fact that it’s a scalable on premises solution that made all the difference.
”E-mail is very important for many of our customers. Even more important than their website. If there is a problem with our e-mail solution, we want to be able to directly see what the problem is. We don’t want to depend on some external helpdesk to fix easy problems” says Marc van de Geijn.
