O’Brien Media: New Email Hosting Platform Powered by iRedMail

In the realm of digital communications, email remains a cornerstone. Recognizing its critical role, O’Brien Media has strategically established a new, independent email hosting platform, distinct from our website hosting services.

This platform is powered by our servers and iRedMail, a leading open-source mail server solution. This move not only highlights our commitment to providing specialized services but also positions us as a tech leader in the industry. Here’s an insight into why this decision is a game-changer.

iRedMail: A Robust and Versatile Email Solution

At the heart of our email hosting platform is iRedMail. This open-source software is known for its robustness, flexibility, and security, making it an ideal choice for professional email hosting. Here’s why iRedMail stands out:

  • Security and Privacy: iRedMail comes with built-in security features that are essential for protecting sensitive email communications. This includes anti-spam and anti-virus measures, ensuring that our clients’ email communications are safeguarded against common threats.
  • Open Source and Customizable: As an open-source platform, iRedMail offers unparalleled customizability. This allows us to tailor our email services to the specific needs of our clients, providing a personalized email experience.
  • Ease of Administration: iRedMail is known for its user-friendly administration. This simplicity in management allows us to efficiently handle email operations, ensuring smooth and uninterrupted email services for our clients.

Independence from Website Hosting: A Strategic Move

Separating our email hosting from website hosting is a deliberate strategy. This separation offers several advantages:

  • Enhanced Security: By isolating email services from website hosting, we reduce the risk of cross-contamination. If a website is compromised, the email system remains unaffected, and vice versa.
  • Optimized Performance: Dedicated resources for email hosting mean that both website and email services can operate at peak efficiency without competing for resources.
  • Customized Solutions: Independent platforms allow us to optimize each service according to its specific needs. Email hosting has different requirements and challenges compared to website hosting, and this separation allows us to address these effectively.

iRedMail and Its Complementary Technologies

To maximize the potential of iRedMail, we integrate it with other leading technologies:

  • Database Systems: Integrating robust database systems ensures efficient handling of email data, enhancing performance and reliability.
  • Advanced Backup Solutions: Regular backups are crucial for email systems. We employ advanced solutions to ensure that our clients’ email data is regularly and securely backed up.
  • Spam and Virus Protection: We leverage top-tier spam filtering and virus protection tools that integrate seamlessly with iRedMail, providing an additional layer of security.

Our email hosting platform, powered by iRedMail, gives us a competitive edge:

  • Reliability: Our clients enjoy a highly reliable email service, crucial for business communications.
  • Security and Compliance: We adhere to the highest security standards, ensuring that our email hosting is compliant with industry regulations.
  • Customizability: Each client has unique needs, and our platform’s flexibility allows us to meet these diverse requirements.


The launch of a dedicated email hosting platform based on iRedMail is a testament to O’Brien Media’s commitment to delivering specialized, high-quality digital services. This strategic move not only enhances our service offerings but also cements our position as a technological leader in the digital solutions sphere. With this development, we are poised to offer our clients a more secure, reliable, and efficient email experience, tailored to their specific business needs.
