  • authorised smtp server

    Hi ,

    My client has 5 different companies..and wants to send thousands of mails on daily basis. For this i search and found that i need to configure the ip of third party smtp service providers.

    Now , If i want to make that server in my own office , is it possible or can i host that server at data center or anyone can suggest me , how to authorize a new ip as authorize smtp server , so that i can use my own server and provide it in my all exchange server smtp connector...

    Thanks..

    Exchange is not designed for bulk mailshots and if you use it, you are likely to get blacklisted very quickly.

    Sign up for a bulk mailer service ( will probably help) and they will advise you how to configure it properly

      Sending mailshots from your own server you will get blacklisted straight away as Ossian said.
      I can recommend using a 3rd party company called mailchimp.

          You can send as many emails as you want from Exchange, but unless you implement proper mailing list management features (unsubscribe etc) you WILL be blacklisted, so other emails will not get to people and your staff (and managers) will be annoyed with you.

          It is far better to subscribe to a service that manages the lists for you, and reduces the risk to you.

            Kathy,

            Ossian and UK_Network have the right idea here. I side with them on their assertion that you should avoid producing mass mailings in-house. Your client would no doubt be very displeased with the potentially disastrous results of attempting such a thing.

            I highly suggest that you abandon the idea of producing these mass mailings in-house and instead choose to use one of the many low-cost professional services available that can provide you and your client with exactly what you need without any potential for causing a catastrophe. Consider these reputable services (although there are many others):

            http://mailchimp.com
            http://mandrill.com
            http://constantcontact.com

            Services such as these help ensure that you remain in compliance with all of the laws and regulations regarding mass mailings, as well as helping your mass mailings be more productive, more traceable, better designed, etc. etc....

            In short, there is a reason these services exist - what they provide is well worth the reasonable cost that they charge for their services.

            Hope this helps,
