The ability to use a remote server for all e-mail purposes, while still allowing the cPanel accounts to manage their mailboxes. In otherwords, complete seperation of e-mail and web servers, with still all of the same functionallity as if the e-mail server was still local.
Mail Only version of cPanel & WHM
As a Server Administrator, I want a WHM/cPanel Mail Only version of cPanel & WHM, so that I can ease the load on my main server.
As a servers and datacenter administrator, I'd like to separate email servers from hosting servers, so that I can have a hosting farm and an email farm.
I see many advantages here:
- less hosting server load
- less bandwidth usage in web servers
- faster web rendering
- change/move hosting not affecting email service
- more specific firewall and security policies for each cluster
