Yukthi provides services relating to email and implementing solutions based on GNU Linux/FOSS.
Cloud (Hosted) Email
TotalOffice Cloud Email is provided
out of dedicated services, fully operated by Yukthi, in high quality,
reputed data centers. Email for the customer comes (for which the MX
records, in the DNS, for the customer's domains should point to our
servers) to our “MX hosts” , i.e. Servers which receive and process the
email, including security checks, spam & virus filtering, Blacklist
checks, etc. The processed email then goes to user mailboxes, from
where users can access it using the IMAP/POP3 protocol, or use webmail.
Outgoing email is sent by the user using SMTP.
Customers can get email for multiple domains; create group email id lists with restrictions; and get reports on email traffic. Email archival is also supported, with a copy of all incoming & outgoing email being sent to another mailbox, from where it can be downloaded; or a Yahoo/Gmail id.
All the usual email clients like Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Evolution on desktops and standard clients on smartphones (Android e.g. K-9, iPhone) are supported. (Note that we do not re-sell space from other service providers.)

In this service, the customer points the MX records for their domains to Yukthi's servers, which results in email arriving there directly from the sending servers. At Yukthi's servers, the email is processed and filtered (including spam/virus filtering, Blacklist checks, header checks, etc.) and then delivered to the customer's email server, which will usually be in the customer's office.
files are uploaded using the
web interface. There is a provision for attaching files to the email
message, apart from inline images (which don't show as attachments.)
The “From” line and “Subject” line also need to be specified. The
message is then “merged” and sent out to all the recipients listed in
the merge file, one message per recipient. The recipient therefore
feels that he/she has received an individual/personal email, which
leads to a better impression and higher chances of a response.
There is also an option to attach individual files to each recipient's email. It could be used to send individual letters (e.g. offer letters), invoices, etc.
It is a web based hosted service (SaaS) and customers only need to pay based on the number of emails they will be sending out. It can also be implemented on a system in the customer's office.
If the customer has an application which needs to send out email, an SMTP based relay service can be provided.
Note that this service is available for bona fide businesses and not spammers. It is ideal for alerts/notifications; sending periodical statements; sending company reports to shareholders (by company secretaries); business/industry/alumni associations; professional and trade bodies.
