Deployment Guides

SmarterTools deployment recommendations fall into three categories: Individual and micro-business architectures, Small to medium-sized business architectures, and High-volume architectures.

For the purposes of these recommendations:

  • Individuals and micro-businesses shall be defined as mail environments with average email volumes of up to 25,000 messages per day (12,500 In / 12,500 Out). This infers a maximum of 100 employees/users. Information regarding these architectures is available in the SmarterMail in Individual and Micro-Business Deployments document.
  • Small to medium-sized businesses shall be defined as mail environments with average email volumes of up to 400,000 messages per day (200,000 In / 200,000 Out). This infers a maximum of 1600 employees/users. Information regarding these architectures can be found in the SmarterMail in Small to Medium-sized Business Deployments document.
  • High-volume deployments shall include ISPs, Hosting Companies, Large Businesses, and Enterprise organizations with average email volumes numbering in the millions. This infers organizations with many thousands of employees/users. Information regarding these architectures can be found in the SmarterMail in High Volume Deployments document.
