My self-hosted inboxing went to hell ... now what?

by OTrap
7 replies
I have spent a couple years with a self-hosted mailing solution that has worked fairly well for the cost. However, recently my inboxing took a complete dump, and I'm interested in seeing what services are out there these days. I haven't used a service in several years, and I feel like I've missed out on the changes in that time.


What services these days are inboxing IM-related emails well, and do any of them allow importing without insisting on re-opting them in?


Thanks!

    I use self-hosted mailing system for cold email. To be frank, result not good too.

    meanwhile, I am using service like mailingboss to opt in those leads from my cold email.

    Broken promises don't upset me. I just think, why did they believe me?

      Huh. No kidding. I used them years ago, and I really didn't discount the fact that they'd still be relevant. I guess I just didn't anticipate them still being the two ahead of the rest.

      Good to know.

        Actually, they both are still strong and ongoing popular because one they both were the first EMS SaaS available for YEARS before some more came on the market, hence they were largely used AND PROMOTED (for large commissions check, as a matter of fact both are among pioneers in affiliates marketing as well because this was all starting online at that time also) by all names you can count in the Internet Marketing field and thus spread like wildfire in no time and two, good for them as well, they have adapted their technology with the changing trends in marketing online.

        That is to say that the whole market has evolved as well and has become HUGE, so huge you can't even count the amount of available email marketing solutions available out there, extremely powerful and innovative ones. So, not only the 2 original providers are not the only ones anymore but one should look a little bit outside of here now in 2019 to check what's going on out there. One thing one should discover is that both original are still good, but are the MOST EXPENSIVE services in the like though. And no, it's not because they are the bests...

    Thanks!
    I've always used a self-hosted solution for 20 years and I would certainly not go to a SaaS as EMS solution ever, let alone nowadays with so many "horrors" acts I've seen in this industry with "clients' lists" for example, to name only that...

    So, you can imagine I cannot imagine one going from self-hosted to giving away one's cash and lists to a third party provider... :/

    Cheers!

    You can keep using your SelfHosted Setup. and link it with a 3rd Party SMTP Provider.

    MailGun, SendGrid, AWS SES are good.
