List of Hybrid Email SMTP Services

I'm looking to find a list of as many different companies that will do a very specific thing.

I want to be able to mail with multiple SMTP servers and or even my own email server. I don't want to be limited to Aweber or GetResponse servers only.

Examples of SMTP email servers would be like the below.

Amazon SES
Mandrill
Sendgrid
SMTP.com
ElasticEmail

If one server starts getting bad deliverability I can just quickly switch to another SMTP provider and never have to go through the MAJOR hassle of switching email companies.

I know some examples of these kinds of companies but I'm looking for more options.

Here are some of the ones I know about.

Extremely expensive starting at 1K a month. (Looks like an enterprise solution.)

MailGet : Email Marketing Via Amazon SES To Create, Send, Track Email Campaign

https://easysendy.com/

I don't want to be just limited to Amazon SES but I want to easily be able to use multiple SMTP's even within the same mailing. The company must look solid and provide good and quick customer support in clear USA English.

I need to have good contact segmentation abilities based on the actions they take like opening or clicking a link etc.

I'd prefer a contact based system to a list based system. For instance, ConvertKit is a contact based system but they do NOT provide the ability to use multiple SMTP's but their own servers which have a fairly crappy reputation when it comes to Sender Scores. I was using them but when I saw the poor scores it scared me away. Otherwise their software is pretty amazing. But useless unless you can get the email delivered.

Aweber on the other hand would be a list based system. And trust me a list based system is ancient technology and limits you in so many ways.

So if you can help me find more of these kinds of hybrid email SAS companies I'd appreciate it.

Also I was going to use arpReach to do this. I had my own hosted account set up. And yet I never ended up using it because it seemed a bit difficult to understand and the support and development where not really there. They had support but it was slow and I don't think they're doing much to develop or improve it anymore.

OK that's it and thank you for any leads,

Roger

    SendX is one of the provider that has Hybrid Email Marketing (+ Automation). It is called Custom ESP in their pricing

    Have been using them over Amazon SES and it's been working really well

      Thanks but I didn't want a list of the SMTP companies but companies that give you the broadcast and autoresponder software and that let's you then choose any of these SMTP companies to mail your broadcasts with.

      Thank you Mike.

      I've looked into Sendy.

      But they don't have built in segmentation. Nor do I believe that it will be very easy to use other SMTP services besides Amazon SES. I think at one point you were able to integrate with Mandrill but now Mandrill has made it clear their service is for transactional emails only.

    Don't forget Mailwizz! One time cost $37 or something, get a VPS to host it,
    send via any smtp, or integrate mandrill, mailgun, amazon ses, elastic email and lots of others via API
    user forum for support is excellent

    I have never used it but I think Interspire can also do all this

    why don't you go for your own smtp relay service all you need to do is use a an email software and integrate your smtp in the software setting you can get plenty of smtp relay service provider just google it....

    The best advantage of using an smtp relay service is that is less costly as compared web services and you can send high volume emails in bulk up to millions per month without worrying about the costs.......

      OP already said he is looking for an email software ... he seems to HAVE an smtp relay ... just saying

      Regarding the cost: Your own service charge for 1 to 2 million emails is almost ten times as high as aweber, (I know because I send 1.2 Million emails a month from there)

        Sorry for the confusion... in that case my suggestion will be the same for him he should hire some expert to create multiple smtp servers for him as a backup... going for off sure companies will cost him alot....

        By the way we do not provide smtp relay services... the packages you are refering to are web packages... we may provide smtp relays services on special request buct the packages and volume are gonna differ a lot interms of cost as i already mentioned above that relay services are much cheaper as compared to web.

          Thank you for pointing that out ... sorry if I got it wrong,

          Still, what I said holds true, afaik ... smtp relays charge per email sent. So if you are sending Millions of emails the cost will be quite something. Look at mailgun pricing for instance, a million emails will cost you over 400 bucks.
          The only cheap ones I found so far are amazon ses and elastic email.

          If you know of any more cheap ones I am eager to hear :-)

            Can you please help me understand every email service providers use for eg

            Aweber says $19/Month for 500 subscribers.Unlimited emails.

            Does it mean for 500 people only you can send unlimited emails (To list) or can I add any number of email address (like putting in Bcc) ..

            Please let me know.
