PowerMTA™ v4.5

PowerMTA™ v4.5 includes new advanced functionalities that permit greater flexibility and delivery control to maximize performance and deliverability.

The new PowerMTA Management Console (PMC) v1.5 supports all new PowerMTA™ v4.5 features, including IP-based reporting, saved reports, configurable session timeouts and advanced reporting filters (including sets and regular expressions).

PowerMTA™ now supports the ability to schedule deliveries through an easy-to-use header. This comes in handy for those times when you have spent a long time building a campaign or if you need to adhere to strict delivery windows.

IP rate limiting permits controlling the number of attempted recipients on a per-hour, per-minute and per-second basis for each IP address for each domain/VirtualMTA. This is primarily used by sites that define multiple IPs in a single VirtualMTA, and want to limit the attempted delivery rate for each IP address in the VirtualMTA to the respective domains.

PowerMTA™ now supports the ability to auto-increase cold VirtualMTA mail volumes with a list of daily limits.This makes it easy to have a “set it and forget it” configuration for warming new IP addresses.

To help optimize DNS usage during peak sending times,PowerMTA™ now offers the ability to precache predefined domain names to ensure the DNS name is always available.

Top-level features for v4.5 include

  • Custom retry intervals
  • Backoff reason insight
  • Enhanced job control (pause & resume)
  • Precached domains support ensures DNS info always available
  • Recipient events listing to aid in real-time queue diagnostics
  • Reverse DNS check on inbound connections
  • Address suppression lists defined with global tag allow senders to use multiple suppression lists

PowerMTA™ also easily integrates with CRM packages such as SalesForce. You can transfer messages to PowerMTA™ for delivery through a standard interface based on SMTP, or through APIs available in common programming languages.

PowerMTA™ Process


TLS Encryption over SMTP

As the sending industry moves to a more secure and encrypted sending model, you will be increasingly required to track whether a message was delivered over a secure socket and, if so, what protocol and cipher were used. PowerMTA™ solves this problem by utilizing the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol over SMTP for certificate-based authentication that provides security-enhanced data transfers using symmetric encryption keys.

Advanced TLS handshake performance optimizations benefit high-volume senders by allowing you to use opportunistic TLS globally while having thousands of simultaneous outbound connections active. This feature is available with the Enterprise license.
