Transactional Email Service

I was in an email conversation with someone this morning and mentioned Elastic Email. I was on their website and noticed that the free emails per month has now gone to 150,000 from 25,000. This even beats Sparkpost and it's pay as you go afterwards.

Probably useful for a lot of people and if you're using @jarland's MXRoute for transactional you could maybe save him some money on MailChannels. shrug Thought I'd post about it anyway and share.

    I'm currently using SendGrid which allows 12,000 per month for free, good experience so far but may have a play with Elastic Email!

    We stopped using SendGrid after complaints from customers, they have quite few IPs blacklisted.

    Currently using Amazon SES, it's really good whilst no free plan it works out cheaper than other services.

  • Sparkpost!
    If you can keep yourself within the free tier, this is the best!
    Free tier = 100.000 / month
    (Daily limit 20.000 )

    Sparkpost aprooved more strict rules. You need you have active website with content. Сertain registration ip etc. Cant even attach sending domain.

    What are you hashtags?

  • Why are there free plans with that many messages? Are they capturing your address lists for their own evil purposes?

    Only downside for elastic email is that there is no included attachment allowance, you have to pay for all attachment MB usage but still works out much cheaper than utilising most providers that include attachments if you stay within the free limit.

    You never know ;)

    India SEO spammers are regularly spamming from SendGrid after switching from Gmail with their (randomname)[email protected] accounts and Yahoo. I report 3-4 a week for the past 2 months.

    They spam on email because they cant get their sites high enough in the google search results.

    I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
    Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

    Been offloading some to @mailcheap with much success. Pavin has worked really hard to help me achieve a near-MailChannels-like experience for some of our big senders. There have been some imperfections along the way but he's been amazing in taking the input and adjusting to make it work.

    All this to ensure that I can continue to work with high volume senders at low cost :)

  • Echoing that SendGrid is not very good. It does seem as though their IPs are getting blacklisted very rapidly lately and it's rather expensive because you're paying for the front-end user interface.

    I'm looking into migrating to Amazon SES, can anyone comment on their deliverability and blacklist situation?

  • This is legalized spammer hosts? which purposes of these deals?

  • @jenkki what? Are you asking if transactional email is different from spam email (Yes)? Or why post deals? (To save money, hence this forum). Or what?

    It's really hard to understand what you say when you are not joking. I'm not sure if it's step forward or back, though.
