AOL

You know that AMS software has a built-in SMTP server, but it’s not a good idea to send an email directly to the client’s mailbox; be ready that some of email messages can become undelivered. Therefore, it is recommended to configure an external SMTP.

Whatever you choose – SMTP server from your hosting provider or from a free email provider – our Atomic Mail Sender will support it anyway. Don’t forget to set up SMTP rotation for external servers. This help you to overcome a limitation if a website mailing ban exists.

  1. We are a Atomic Mail Studio owner and love the products. This is a great post.

    • Excellent site, keep up the good work. I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks

  3. Thanks for a good and simple compilation.

  4. All wonderful suggestions. We’re bookmarking this web site, certainly

  5. So if we are using atom mailing software we can only send to 100 email receipts per day using the gmail smtp?

    Is there an hourly limit or can we send all 100 at once then rotate to the next smtp?

    What about setting up a google apps account where we set up a domain name, doesn’t that increase the limits?

    “Gmail email send limit – no more than 500 recipients per message for the Gmail web interface, or max 100 recipients if you are using an email client software.”

    • You need to go to the settings – common settings – Mailer tab, here Attempts to send – paste 1.
      One gmail account allows you to send up to 500 emails per day. You can use any SMTP you want, the limit depends upon the SMTP only.
