comment Emails Sent From My Site Do Not Get Delivered to Gmail
@Greg: I tried. But it is not being delivered to any gmail account. Is there some way I could track what is happening to the email and where it is going?

comment Emails Sent From My Site Do Not Get Delivered to Gmail
@Ramhound: I'm not sending many emails per day, we're still testing the site so it's nothing more than 3-5 emails per day. And what do you mean by masking the sender? I have the same address set in the smtp configurations and in the FROM field of the email.

@Robert Moir: Alright, thanks a lot! I actually use Kaspersky on my personal computer and I'm really happy with it as well. I guess that's what I should be going for the server too.

@Robert Moir: Hmmm... I see. I thought that was the responsibility of the web hosting company and not mine. Could you please elaborate on the software security aspect? What software would I need? Antivirus, Firewall, setting permissions...? And are there any specific software you would recommend for a Windows based environment? Again, I really appreciate your answers, definitely helpful!

@John Gardeniers: I do understand that the job of a system admin is much more complex than being summarized by a few questions. I was just hoping to get some headlines in the answers on which I could concentrate my research.

@Robert Moir: I wish I could vote you up on this one because that was some really good answer! BUT, I'm not really sure we're talking about the same thing? lol. My job will be restricted to taking care of a small server and keeping the website running, that's it. There aren't no server rooms or any "physical security" measures I should be taking because there machine will be at a web hosting company. Security is actually of high priority, so is data loss prevention. The website I'm working on is an online auction so you get the picture. Thanks again! :)

@SLY: I am a freelance web developer. I am currently working on a client's project and we're considering a dedicated (or VPS) self-managed server as our hosting choice, but in this case she'll need a system admin and she is thinking of assigning this task to me and my partner. Accordingly, I'm doing some research on the subject. I live in Lebanon (Middle East).
