Can anyone recommend a good SmartHosting service.

We have an Exchange 2010 server, SPF and rDNS is all setup, but we still get a few things we send blocked as spam.

Can anyone recommend a good reputable smart hosting service we could use to solve this issue?

We have clients using SMTP2GO successfully.  They happen to be a local company.  Cheap/free to give it a try.

yeah we just use Microsoft as an outbound smarthost and inbound spam filter. All our mailboxes are still hosted internally. Its called Exchange Online Protection, EOP, and is really very good.

If you want a local option check out - Not sure if they still bundle outbound-protection-only but that's effectively what that is.

Or use your ISP SMTP server as a smarthost, assuming they offer one.

If your emails are being categorised as spam, changing your relay is unlikely to fix the problem as the source IP is only a small piece of the puzzle these days.
