Feature Enhancement: Microsoft Exchange / Corporate Mail Server Integration

Sending emails to respondents just got easier.

With Microsoft Exchange / Corporate Mail Server Integration on SurveyAnalytics, you now can send to thousand of respondents using your own email without having it go to junk mail.
What is SMTP Relay?

SurveyAnalytics SMTP Relay lets you send survey invitation emails using your existing email service. SMTP relay uses your corporate SMTP server settings for sending emails and providing authenticity and thereby avoiding being caught as SPAM/Junk mail.

Does my IT have to do anything?

It depends - but very likely yes. The way the SMTP Relay system works is that, your servers will be the initial receivers of the email - even if the email is not destined to your domain. This makes sure that your servers are the initial point of contact as they email out to the wider world.

Your IT staff may want to know the IP address from which we'll be sending emails (to be allowed to relay.) - Please see the references section below to get a list of the IP addresses for our ourbound servers.
How is this different than just whitelisting IP addresses in our mail servers?

By using the SMTP Relay, all emails that you send are routed through your servers. For example, if you are sending email invitations to gmail, hotmail etc. - and you would want to route all the emails through your servers - for corporate accountability, standards, archiving etc. - the SMTP Relay functionality will make sure this happens.

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Cyber Security

Earlier this week, we experienced a power outage with our data center at Internap. During this short period of time, our customers were unable to access the site. Luckily, it didn't last long and we are back up and running now thanks to our dedicated support team that responded quickly and worked diligently.

Cyber security is, and always has been, a very important issue for us as we continue to grow and meet the demands of a technology-driven society. Nothing is more paramount than the safety of your valuable data. And apparently we weren't the only ones affected, as LinkedIn was experiencing difficulties on the same day and Internap had 3 massive outages earlier this year. Check out these infographics with stats on the importance of cyber security and the impact it can have on small-medium sized businesses.
