MXRoute 1 Year Review
I've been a MXRoute customer for just about a year now. Yes I know this is 10 days early, but I couldn't wait to post this, lol.
I use it for managing multiple email addresses my various online businesses/websites, and sending ~200-300 emails a day via SMTP and all that jazz.
I snagged a $15/year BlackFriday special which is more than enough for my needs, and let me tell you, it is well worth it.
Prior to this I was using Google Apps (Free) for receiving mail and MailJet for sending mail out, but after GoogleApps made it so you can't add more domains to it, I started looking for alternatives.
I decided to give MXRoute a shot since it was cheap and everyone always says good things about it.
During the last 12 months I only had 2 issues with MXRoute.
MailChannels (MXroute uses MailChannels to deliver mail) stopped sending mails for one of my domains, this was out of Jarlands control but he contacted them very quickly and sorted it out. Have not had that issue since.
The entire Ghost Server (The server I'm on) went offline for a couple of hours in September.
Both issues were solved very promptly and professionally.
And considering I'm paying $15/year it is well worth the money, the value you get from MXRoute is way more than your paying for so it's a damn good investment.
Only thing I miss about MailJet is that they have a "Real-Time Mail Feed" in their panel which lets you see all the emails that are being sent out, in real-time. This is a very powerful and useful tool for many reasons.
I hope MXRoute will implement something like that some day, or at least give customers a way to see mail that was sent out, as the only way to get that information right now is to open a ticket and Jarland has to manually check.
Overall, I would rate this service a 10/10.
Great value, great product, great support.
I'd call MXRoute the "RamNode" of mail sending. :P as I only use RamNode for all my production websites.
Good job @Jarland
