I have a list of about 50,000 and I'm adding about 1500/day. I'm wanting to start emailing with SMTP but don't know how. Can anyone point me to some good resources to learn SMTP...or to an email coach I can hire to teach me SMTP? Thanks!

    How are you getting the data?

      Yes, I'm mailing 25k right now, but it's through an ESP - E-Goi. In the process of learning good emailing practices, I've been banned by Aweber, GetResponse, and others.
      I'm running PPC ads on Google and Bing, capturing the emails, and crosspromoting offers in the same niche through email.
      So I guess it's Business to Consumer...
      Thanks.

        Have you ever considered that you generating a lot of fraudulent leads or traffic.
        If your getting the leads from PPC, and pushing them to an opt in squeeze page, your accounts should not be getting banned.

    Hi Kw9375,

    I recommend that you stick with an ESP and learn best practices for sending bulk email.

    While it might be tempting to just send it through your own SMTP server it will likely end up being more expensive than using an ESP in most cases.

    Sending email in bulk requires a lot of intensive server management and a network of servers to keep things running smoothly. ESPs do this at a scale that makes it more affordable, going it alone will likely cost you a lot more money and turn out to be a lot less reliable.

    Personal and business class ISPs along website hosting do not permit bulk email (spamming), it is against their terms of service. You are likely to get kicked off of your hosting and/or lose your ISP service, and then there is the blacklist management issues that you are going to have to deal with on a constant basis.

    It's a whole lot easier to learn and stick to best practices while using an ESP, It is also more affordable unless you have the resources to run your own email service and the volume to make it work at large scale.

    why don't you go for self hosted service? Using that you can send emails without any problem.

      Self hosted is only a good solution if you know what you are doing.
      There are plenty of people who are selling Interspire and PowerMTA installs for a few hundred dollars a most.
      Most of them use cracked software, leak all kinds of data, and have terrible delivery.
      Proceed with caution.

          However, Interspire is listed on your website.

          Anyone in the business for any reasonable amount of time, know that those providing interspire and powermta are doing so using hacked versions.

          Telling users that they can send emails with no problems using a self-hosted solution is misleading. What ProducerK said is spot on.

            well, DIABLO, you are right Interspire is mentioned on my website. I never asked to use Interspire though.
            Moreover, there are so many frontend tools are available in the market to use. I setup custom servers as user's requirement. To use Interspire is not compulsion.
            lastly, i never misguide anyone. simply provide clear information.

    this can be tricky

    if your domain has no reputation then ISPs will send you to spam by default

    if you wanna go this way, consider sendgrid
