    I'm sure a bunch of ppl on here have already had to fill out this damn thing, and probably didn't put down the most "accurate" justifications, haha, being that this is bhw and all...

    I'm looking to bulk mail from my new dedi, and I ordered some additional ip's. The company is requiring I fill out a justification form to receive the ip's.

    While I don't intend to just write "bulk mailing" on the form (haha) I'm looking for some others who have successfully filled out their form and received their ip's who share my same intent for usage.

    thanks in advance bhatters

    Hi,

    I get these all the time as each of my boxes needs 10 IP addresses - we run 10 IPS, 10 domains, 10 Postfix, 10 SendStudio - for up to 200K email per hour per dedicated box.

    When they ask for justification on the IPs I tell them our company uses subcontract coders and designers in India and the Philippines and we need to construct SSH / VPN tunnels and isolated workspaces for each of the teams with a separate IP address on the main server.

    I haven't a clue if that's a valid reason or even makes sense - but I get approved every time so...

    :)

    Cheers

    Ronin

    I just say I'm going to need to put secure certificates on the sites (each SSL cert needs a seperate IP).

    You can also tell them you are setting up your own hosting server and each account has a free IP and will offer SSL.
