The Mail Bagging system receives your company's emails and filters out any junk mail.

Your primary mail server receives a full message history when it comes back online.

Benefits of Mail Bagging Safeguard against email server failures or loss of internet service and protect your organization's reputation with Webservio's Mail Bagging service.

Never Miss Another Important Email

Research indicates most small and midsize organizations experience more than 40 hours of unplanned email downtime every year.

Some of these outages last more than 24 hours. Having MX backup ensures server downtime will not result in the loss of critical messages.

Webservio’s Mail Bagging starts receiving messages automatically as soon as your primary email server becomes unavailable. Plan options include failover for 4 days, 20 days, or unlimited spooling.

Safeguard the Good Reputation of Your Business

If having email failover seems like an unnecessary expense, consider the cost of missing messages from stakeholders, customers, and vendors.

Without an email failover service, all emails sent to your organization would bounce back, leaving the senders confused and potentially causing you to lose important business opportunities.

Webservio can provide you with scalable Mail Bagging, allowing you to satisfy a critical component of your organization’s disaster recovery plan for an affordable cost. With the Mail Bagging service, your business correspondents will be unaware of any trouble with your mail server. Your business continuity and good reputation is maintained!

Ensure a Speedy Resolution of Downtime Problems

Having an email failover plan in place allows your IT team to focus on the real cause of the outage instead of scrambling to implement temporary failover measures, like MX repoints.

This saves your organization time and money. Disaster recovery planning minimizes confusion and keeps your tech team from being reactive at a time when they need to be able to work toward restoring the primary mail service.

Mail Bagging kicks in automatically no matter what time of day or night your mail server outage occurs. Once service to the primary mail server is restored, inbound messages are automatically routed to your email server.

How Mail Bagging Works

Downtime Uptime
  1. When your network or email server fails, your company's emails are redirected to the Webservio Mail Bagging system.
  2. The messages first pass through the SpamWeeder Premium filtering, which gets rid of any blatant spam or viruses.
  3. Then the clean emails go to Mail Bagging system.
  4. An administrator can log in to the service interface (available with most plans) to ensure messages are being held. The message subject and content can also be viewed, allowing the administrator to find and view important messages as needed.

Mail Bagging Highlights

Compatible With Your Current Configuration

Webservio's Mail Bagging is compatible with any type of mail server and most network configurations, including multiple domains, locations, or mail servers. Whether you are using Microsoft Exchange, Sendmail, Postfix, Lotus, or some other mail server platform, messages will be seamlessly forwarded to your mail server from Webservio's Mail Bagging system.

Mail Bagging also works with your existing spam filtering service or on-premise firewall, such as Barraccuda, Sonicwall, or Ironport.

Helps Maintain Email Security

Webservio's Mail Bagging service includes SpamWeeder Premium filtering to ensure that blatant spam and emails with viruses do not make it to your mail server. In addition to providing a layer of security, filtering messages reduces the amount of space needed to store bagged messages and ensures your primary mail server or gateway device is not flooded with an excessively large volume of email upon regaining connectivity.

If you are already using a hosted SaaS solution, you can continue using it in place of or in addition to SpamWeeder Premium. Mail Bagging also works with your existing on-premise anti-spam device, such as Barraccuda, Sonicwall, or Ironport.

Therefore, even if there was a temporary problem with the Mail Bagging server, your emails would still be held by the spam filtering system. This dual-layer system ensures that your emails are safe no matter what!

For clients that require 99.999% uptime of their Mail Bagging system, Webservio offers custom server configurations and SLAs along with support plan upgrade options.

Easy Management

Optional monitoring notifications let you know when Mail Bagging is in use. In addition, most Mail Bagging plans include access to the web-based administrative control panel. This interface allows you to view the messages in the email backup system. You can even see details like subject, sender, and message body. When your server comes back online, delivery attempts will happen on an automated cycle. Control panel access gives you the option to override the retry cycle and send the bagged messages to the mail server immediately.
