Hello,

I'm looking for setting up an smtp for my own mail server in order to send out 100k emails per day.

What could you recommend me as an efficient solution for an affordable price?
Is it PowerMTA, Postfix or others?

Thank you very much!

    The thing with own mail servers are that it's very hard to avoid spam folder. Especially when you want to send 100k emails. It works for personal mailboxes. But takes a lot of work setting up DNS records and such.

    I suggest Sendy. It's dead cheap when installed on an unmanaged VPS and configured with Amazon SES. It's fairly easy to setup too. Here's a tutorial,

    Even with that, you have to compile with Amazon SES terms. Which can be a nightmare sometimes.

    Amazon SES is good server to sending a lot of emails, but it's risky too because it's not easy to compile all requirements from Amazon SES when you're sending 100k emails/day.

      I've been using mailchimp for a while but unfortunately it doesn't allow to send emails to a purchased list.

    PostUp does allow sending of emails to a purchased list but regardless of what platform you do choose, deliverability can of course suffer depending how the list is cleansed etc.

    100k daily is a small volume, you could use PowerMTA it have an amazing features to control the sending and deliverability. few IPs and couple domain name and you could achieve that.

    Most importantly! you need to have good data and follow good sending practice to maintain good delivery late.

    I always suggest Mailchimp for you, because this is the best bulk mailing service.

      Below are there features

      Low Cost

      Compare us with any other SMTP relay service, we challenge our prices are still be 1/3rd of cheapest competitor, YET, quality of email delivery is equally good. We are able to offer cheap smtp relay because we do not over charge our customers for same amount of emails.

      Over 95% email delivery rates

      We have been maintaining a steady email delivery rate of 95% across all major ISPs including Yahoo, AOL, hotmail and gmail.

      Instant Account Creation & Setup

      As soon as you make payment, your account will be created instantly. No delays, no waiting. You can get started in less than 5 minutes.

      Dedicated IP address for each account

      We provide dedicated IP addresses for each account. It means an IP used by one member will never be used by any other user of BulkResponse. This ensures that mail stream of each member is separate, hence if one member is causing problems for email delivery, it will not affect other users using the same service.

      Comprehensive Tracking and Reporting

      You will be provided a members area where you can track your SMTP relay history. You will be provided comprehensive reporting on mail deliveries and bounces. You can see graphs and also download your relay history as an excel file.
      Hi man, I think you didn't read carefully what I'm looking for. Anyway Thank's!
