For my website, velobase.com, I have been sending out periodic (semi-monthly) update emails to all members to let them know what is new on the site, what changes have been made, etc etc. I'm doing this through the SMTP sever through my webhost, godaddy.com. My website's code (asp.net 2.0) has the server and my account info, and sends off the emails through SMTP relay.
All in good, except that godaddy imposes a limit of 250 emails per day. My website opened in June, and in less than 6 months I have 220 users currently. You see then, the problem I will soon face. As it is I can not send a correction to a update email if for some reason I send a wrong bit of information or something (like I accidentally did today )
Right now I'm looking at using gmail's smtp for the bulk emails only, but their limit only goes to 500, and I hear a rumor it might limit to 100 per hour?
Anyone else have any other better options? Thanks!
