    Bandwidth Issue, Need some explain

    Assume that I am host my own email and website either paid or free

    I know that receive email in our host will consume bandwidth and so to download it to our PC.

    Same to we send a 10MB attachment, it will cost 10MB(upload) + 10MB (Out from server) if we do it with our webmail

    How about if we using Outlook Express? the POP for sure, we set it to our server POP address, but the SMTP we set it to other such as TMnet one or TIMEnet one?

    Does it consume bandwidth while we send email using TMnet SMTP? does our attachment pass our server

    U min U rent an exchange server & run Urself? I think it is not an issue for da bandwidth, no need to worry much about tat y not just ask Ur hostin company about da terms & usage? Even for share hostin I din c any limitation on bandwidth for email usage unless they add into Ur web bandwidth then diff story.. but Im sure they wil limit d attachment size to 2MB or less anyway da best way is ask them directly

    err.. not sure what you mean by Host it on your own.
    Do it mean host it with your own server in your house with a dedicated ip from the isp ?
    or ;
    host it with a dedicated/co-lo server with a hosting provider?

    If you send the email using Outlook from your PC via your ISP SMTP server to a destinationother than your own hosting account, it will not consume any bandwidth of your hosting account.

    Yes, the email goes from your PC then to the destination server. It does not go to your hosting server so your hosting bandwidth is not used. Your ISP bandwidth is used.

    wingwp, if a hosting provide you 1G bandwidth and your email send and receive are exceed, and you would like to save cost instead of upgrade your hosting... then what should you do? will you think like what i think?

    I don't think calvynlee said the hosting company was charging for email bandwidth. Just that the hosting bandwidth is limited so trying to keep the usage low and within the limit

    yeah, u chop the right tree~ this is what i mean... mostly our hosting company will limit our usage of bandwidth, so now i guest using TMnet SMTP or TIMEnet SMTP is the only solution to save the bandwidth...

    For your enquiry, I think you should ask you service provider for further information. Guess they provide a supports center for their customer. Maybe ask them will give you a clearer information.

    But for my knowledge, I think it would not use any bandwitdh space of urs.

    uhuh.. U guys get me wrongly, I said usually hostin companies r not meter Ur "email" account's bandwidth usage, therefore U don't need to worry about saving any bandwidth

    da best solution is confirm tis wv Ur hostin company, if they do meter Ur email bandwidth pls let me know which company is tat

    I got the same opinion as wingwp.

    Reason:
    Although all the webmail are address with your domain name (e.g. webmail.domain.com), but it's actually a redirect to your web hosting services provider's company's mail servers.

    That's the reason all the service providers restricted about spamming. Although u send a mail with ur company domain name (e.g name@domain.com), but the email service hosting company like hotmail.com will detect the email is sent from your service provider's mail server and blacklisted it.

    Maybe my reason is kinda out of topic but what did i mean is the email actually not spending any bandwitdh from your hosting. I'm not really sure with the comment, but it's just my opinion.

    As I said earlier, better if you ask ur service provider about the enquiry as some service provider provides different services and features.
