Choosing the right SMTP server is a very important step for anyone who needs to send a newsletter to her customers or subscribers. Unfortunately many people – and alas, many “experienced” marketer as well – still don’t understand the vital importance of a professional outgoing mail server when it comes to newsletters and email marketing.
Let’s put it very straight: you must not send a newsletter with Gmail or Yahoo or any other SMTP server related to a normal free email provider. Of course you can try, but the result will be a complete failure. For two reasons:
- You cannot handle more than a certain number of emails and recipients with these outgoing mail servers. For instance, Gmail has a limitation of 500 recipients per email. It’s a cautionary measure to block spammers.
- Even if you split your list in smaller chunks to avoid these limits and proceed with separate mailing, again it won’t work: non-professional servers cannot guarantee a full deliverability. That is, a part of your messages will get lost no matter what: filtered out by antispam shields, rejected by ISPs restrictions, and you won’t even know it.
So if you need to send a bulk email like a newsletter, it’s imperative to choose a professional SMTP service that can ensure a proper delivery rate – and provide other useful tools to analyze your campaign.
