Hello everyone,

I have open ticket with Support on this, but I also wanted to get some feedback from the PGM Community.

We have a customer that is considering using Proxmox Mail Gateway's for their monthly invoice batching. This is mission critical email that needs to go out without fail in and in a timely manner. They are concerned about resiliency, queues, tracking, etc and plan to setup a HA configuration.

Here the key numbers:

Internet Bandwidth = 400Mb/sec but bursts up to 1Gb if traffic hits 85% of the 400Mb
Number of Mails = 5,000 to 6,000 Mails per Hour at its peak
Size of Mails = Average about 30KB to 100KB

They will be purchasing at least a Basic or Standard subscription and would like guidance / recommendation on hardware requirements that will easily and smoothly address the mail flow referenced above. Can you assist? Specifically, we would like to get an idea of minimum CPU(s), RAM, Disk, etc. in an HA configuration.

Essentially, we are looking for something a bit more granular (beyond Recommended SysReqs) for the load referenced above.

Please let me know if you have had any experiences in this type of setup and provide additional insight.

Thanks and regards,

Stefan

Hey @stefanzman

did you ever get an answer to your question?

can only vouch for PMG being able to handle a lot of emails at a time, just last week we had seen over 6k emails hit our clients PMG with 5k of those being spam and viruses, all remaining emails quickly and cleanly filtered.

the remaining emails delivered to users mailboxes.

only running a small single PMG 2core 4 GB Ram.

would be interested in what support replied with if you add ok with sharing :) ?

””Cheers
G
