Email Providers

I’m curious if anyone has any recommendation for email service
providers. I’m currently using AuthSMTP and it’s working out okay. I’m
looking for a little more flexibility in which headers are available to
set, and of course deliverability is always key.

To give you an idea of scale, we’ll probably send 10-20k emails a month.
Long term it’s looking like we’ll need to maintain our own mail servers,
but it would be nice to outsource sending emails to a third party early
on.

What’s your budget? You should be able to send 10-20k messages
through a small VPS or a dedicated server. This would give you the
ultimate control and you’d know going in that your IP wasn’t being
blocked globally.

Most people seem to recommend rolling our own mail server too. The
budget isn’t really the deciding factor - I’m more concerned about
ensuring deliverability and I don’t have any experience setting up a
mail server. I figured a third party would do a better job at handling
best practices stuff.

You should be able to find a provider who can help you get your
initial setup configured the way you need it. I know that’s something
Blue Box Group will do… I’m sure there are others out there as
well. And the end of the day, that’s likely the most cost effective
and most reliable method.
