What is Mail Bagging aka MX Backup? Webservio Mail Bagging (MX Backup) Services

Have you ever gone out of town and forwarded your mail to the post office until you return? Webservio's Mail Bagging (MX Backup) solution acts in the same way for your email messages without filling out a form each time your mail server is unavailable!

When your email server is unavailable, Webservio Mail Bagging (MX Backup) captures the emails sent to your MX server and sends them to you when your system is back online. What's more, our SpamWeeder gateway system filters any incoming blatant spam and viruses from all bagged messages!

Consider this scenario: An email message is sent to a valid email address. The mail server associated with that email address is down. The email message bounces back to the sender as undeliverable.

Webservio's Mail Bagging (MX Backup) solution prevents emails from bouncing back!

Messages sent to valid email addresses within your company during the server downtime will be stored until your mail server is brought back online. The mail bagging solution works in the following way: Webservio provides you with redundant backup MX records to add to your DNS. These additional MX records will have a lower priority so that they act as your backup MX records, which allows you to continue to accept messages even when your mail server is busy or down.

 What sets Webservio's Mail Bagging service apart from our competitors' is our ability to apply anti-spam/virus filtering to all messages bagged for your domain(s). As a result, your network resources are not consumed with spam processing when your primary mail server becomes available!


The benefits you and your company gain from using Webservio's Mail Bagging Shared, VPS and Dedicated plans include:

Retention of incoming emails that are delivered when your server is back on-line.

No bounced or undeliverable messages sent to your customers.

Webservio Mail Bagging (MX Backup) packages with email continuity offer the ability to view your rescued emails and even send and receive new messages using a Web-based program. This program can be integrated with a POP3 client such as Microsoft Outlook.
