We require someone to perform some research and deliver a report with solution and costs for the following.

Here is the situation:

We have a website with 100K members. When member signs up to the website they have unique email address which we can contact, but their email is not 'public' - other members cannot see email.

So instead, we want to give each member an email 'alias' at our domain. (for eg. An email alias is basically a forwarder. it means when people send email to that address the email server will 'forward' it directly to their real address.

So... we need to know how to do this.

We already setup function for members to create alias, and this alias is saved in our members database next to their real address. Now we need answers how to send this information to email server to create the forwarder.

You job will be to write a document explaining the following:

- do we need a new server? if so what kind of email server do we require? internal or external? which is cheaper and most effective? please list some places where we can get them...
- will the mail server be windows or linux (we prefer linux because website is coded in PHP/MySQL)
- what additional mail software will the mail server need to have?
- how do we setup the email alias for each user on the server:
-- i.e. how do we automatically send the members 'real' address and 'alias' to the mail server which will create a forwarder.
- how much will it cost: hardware costs? software costs? development costs?

- currently the website is built with php symfony framework
- we currently use PHP mail to send out all emails from the server

We will need the document in Word Doc form, formatted so it is understandable with appropriate headings for each section. the document must be written in english and fully understandable by english speaker.

Once the research document is completed, the selected coder may be asked to help implement the project.

English speakers only
