FAQ of the Week
Question: I set up the SMTP virtual server on my web hosting server. I can send from other boxes, but not from websites hosted on the box that has the SMTP Virtual Server. Any ideas?

Answer:

Check the IP address of the SMTP Virtual Server. If you want to serve ALL IP's on that box, then set it to All Unassigned IPs.

Definition of the Week
MbPS:  Megabits (mb) per second. A bit is either a 0 or 1 (a digit) and a byte is a string of 8 bits. 8 mbps (megabits per second) equals 1 MB/sec (megabytes per second). Therefore 54 mbps is equal to a max of 6.75 MB/second.

Megabits per second (note the lowercase b). A bit is either a 0 or 1 (a digit) and a byte is a string of 8 bits. Don't confuse mbps (megabits per second) with MBPS (MegaBytes per second). A megabyte is just over one million bytes of data (1,048,576) and is abbreviated as MB/sec. It takes eight megabits (mb) to equal one megabyte (MB):

8 mbps (megabits per second) = 1 MB/sec (megabytes per second)

Therefore...

  • 11 mbps = a max of 1.375 MB/second (i.e. wireless B NIC)
  • 54 mbps = a max of 6.75 MB/second (i.e. wireless G NIC)
  • 100 mbps = a max of 12.5 MB/second (i.e. typical NIC)
