  • ISP locks mass mailing to 99 emails?

    Hey all,

    I'm in a bit of a pickle with something and I'd love some help to resolve the problem.

    I've bought and installed 'asp nmanagerpro' (newsletter tool) as I find it to be a very nice tool to create html newsletters/un-subscribe/and link watch all from my site. However the tool requires that I put in our smtp and user auth and in our case (we run our site from a ms hosting package from oneandone.co.uk) so the smtp is their one - auth.smtp.1and1.co.uk but... on the first attempt at sending out a newsletter to our 2,000 subscribers, we discovered that oneandone limit the number of emails u can send out on auth.smtp.1and1.co.uk to 99 emails every 3 minutes! This is just not good enough for us - and we're on the professional package! - I contacted them and they told me to use their built in newsletter tool - which isn't up to the standards I need.

    So, what I want to know is, is there a way around this?

    P.S. - Luckily the newsletter tool has a batch feature so we currently are sending 99 emails every 3 minutes - but as you can imagine this is taking a ridiculously long time! 1 hr.

    P.S.S - If you have a suggestion that doesn't make use of nmanagerpro please still mention it here.

    As this revolves around an asp tool - I couldn't think where else to put this thread.

    Thanks!

    If your current hosting doesn't meet your requirements then maybe you should look for alternative hosting that does. Most will have some sort of limiter on sending of emails though so as to stop spammers from being able to use their service. You can blame the people who buy from spammers for causing this problem for you.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

      Yeah - changing porviders isn't really an option.

      Can't I run my own mail server and send the newsletters through that?

        this one is very simple to use:
        http://www.softfolder.com/easy_smtp_server.html
        ($49)

        this one has tons of features and is more on enterprise level:

        (from $130 to $2850 depending on version)
        I know that I know nothing

          Check with your ISP as to which port you should use when sending mail from your own mailserver. Most now block port 25 and either only open it for those customers who specifically request it because they are running their own mailserver or they use a different port instead so as to make it more difficult for spammers to hijack their system to send spam.
