Notes: ISP DNS server IP Address has nothing to do with the process of email message delivery. It merely serves to turn the IP address--a series of four 8 bit numbers, ie: 151.196.75.10 into a domain name www.memydomain.com

Therefore, sending emails via your PCs mail server will not jeopardize your ISPs DNS server in any way when you enter its address--ie: 151.196.75.10 into your PCs mail server program. The DNS server is used by all Internet program or web browsers to access the Internet.

Benefits of using a PCs mail server?

Benefits of using a PCs mail server

By using your PCs as a mail server, you can send unlimited email messages without restrictions--because most ISPs limit user access to their mail server by time or the quantity of emails that can be sent.

When you are using your PCs as a mail server, the email will be sent directly to your recipient's mailbox via their ISP mail server and bypass your ISPs mail server delivery queue.

Single thread mail server can send between 500 to 5,000 or more text emails per hour with a 56Kbps V92 or ISDN modem--depending on your Internet connection bandwidth or throughput and the mail server.

*single-thread, means that emails are sent-out one after another--after the recipient mail server have accepted each email sent--the program will then proceed to send the next email (if it is not accepted, it will be kept in queue to be resend later).

**Multiple thread mail server programs (send multiple emails simultaneously to recipients ISPs mail server). They can send very large volume of emails (250,000 text mails) through Broadband system like: DSL 256/516kbps, ADSL 12/480 Mbps, or Network/Cable T1 (1.544Mbps) Internet connection using powerful high performance dedicated mail server.

Note:
Different ISPs provide different up-load and download speed--meaning that having a 256/512Kbps DSL or 480Mbps USB 2.0 High Speed or Full Speed 12 Mbps 2.0 USB ADSL download does not mean that you can up-load at the same speed, check it up with your ISPs.

It also depends on whether your motherboard support USB 2.0 (1.1 device) Full Speed device or the USB 2.0 High Speed--meaning that if you have a ADSL 2.0 USB Full Speed Modem running on USB 1.1 then you only get 12 Mbps

Emailing speed can be as slow as 500 or 5,000 text message per hour (depending on message size) using a 56K or ISDN, DSL at the lower end and for ADSL

A Network/Cable T1 (1.544Mbps) connection, may even send up-to 250,000 emails per hour--depending on the Internet connection throughput and computer mail server system capability.
