    Default Dedicaded link for email... how much?

    Hello,
    we have a mail server with 400 users and 128GB monthly traffic and traveling 8k mails per day, we have a dedicated link from 4MB to e-mail, Internet, FTP.

    We would like to put a link dedicated just for e-mail, someone had a suggestion on how this would link?

    Thanks

    What do you mean by how it would link ? Or are you asking what size of pipe you should be purchasing ? If my understanding is correct then you need to analyse not just the number of emails per day, but what total bandwidth they consume. You can then extrapolate that information across a month and include sufficient headroom aswell in-case of a spike.

    It's going to be difficult to answer your question in detail or with accuracy because your question is not very clear.

    So, you are considering a 1MB line. I am going to think that this means an internet connection with a guarenteed bandwidth of 10mbps (mega bits per second, roughly one megabyte per second.)

    If you use this line to it's full capacity, you could consume 128Gigabytes in around 36 hours.

    There are around 5,040 hours in a month, so these numbers tell me that the line could be used at 1/140th of it's capacity 24/7.

    I've no idea if that helps you any though?
