WordPress mailing list with GoDaddy SMTP limit

Postby Saman » Fri Dec 10, 2010 5:15 pm

I have installed Subscribe2 plugin to Wordpress and working fine with it for 100s of members for a long time until some users complained me that they don't receive any email from us at all. I investigated the problems and found out that it was due to my hosting with GoDaddy that  limits SMTP to 1000 email recipients per day.

GoDaddy even doesn't support external SMTPs. They have completely blocked SSL/TLS ports so great email services like Gmail isn't possible with them (Gmail is also having a limit of 500 emails per day with each email supporting up to 100 recipients. i.e.: 500x100 = 50000 which is more than enough for any user). The GoDaddy support guy called Adma Gomez confirmed that. He is really a great support guy. He explained all these very clearly. He said it is a GoDaddy policy to control spam with such limitations.

I was totally upset and decided to change the hosting to another server. But every hosting company I contacted had such limitations. Most of the people are giving 250 relays (recipients per day). There were some hosting companies who support external SMTPs including some free hosting companies (I have bad expereince with free hosting so I didn't want to even think about it). When you buy a hosting account, consider external SMTP support as well.

There wasn't any built in way to throttle emails with WordPress unless we write something by our own.

Luckily, thankful to the author of Subscribe2, I found his email queue solution that we can control the number of emails per day. Though it is not free, it is a very nice job by him. Have a look at http://wpplugins.com/plugin/76/wordpress-mail-queue-wpmq/.

You are correct. It has become a worst problem to the world now.
However mass emailing is necessary for people who subscribed to a newsletter using a double opt-in system.

Mailing list is important because you get to keep the people who raised their hand, you can know that they are interested and want to buy what you offer them. You should buy one now because the company plays an important role in the creation of a series of business ties. Do not waste your money on the wrong mailing list and get the correct list of trusted providers. List must be detailed and categorized to provide ease and convenience, while the information is intended to be used. Throughout the year, or even a single day, especially for business contact information of those changes. It is important to take advantage of these steps because of an error can prevent direct contact with sales opportunities. The accuracy is higher if you are targeting the leadership of other organizations.
