Does port speed effect how much mail can be pushed out?

    I was looking at the server at my host and I was wondering if the port speeds would help pump out mail at a higher rate. My current server is this.

    - CPU: 1.5GHZ, RAM: 1GB, DISKSPACE: 50GB, BANDWIDTH: 1000GB/MONTH

    ( I know, weak but it's a start)


    The "premium" version of the same server has these stats

    - CPU: 2.5GHZ, RAM: 1GB, BURST RAM: 2GB, DISKSPACE: 50GB, BANDWIDTH: 2000GB/MONTH, PORT SPEED: 1000M/1G

    My question is how much more worth is it to upgrade the port speed?

    No if you are already at 100M no need to go any higher. Email does not use up a lot of bandwidth 1000GB/MONTH more than enough. The only part that really will have an impact is the cpu speed depending on the mailing software used.

    Port speed is just part of the story...

    Your ISP/upstream can screw you in more ways than you can imagine by throttling your traffic.

    There is no way to know how your network will perform till you are actually trying it out.
