I have the ability to send email newsletters from the admin area of my site--well kind of... The system kind of works. The problem is that my email list is growing and when i send emails the system times out and I have no idea who got the newsletter (I know that some people get it and some don't). However I really need the ability to be able to send my newsletter without this glitch and I'd also like the ability to see who's opened what link, clicked through on what link etc (so a reporting system). I think the problem with the emailing is that my hosting company only allows:
- 25 mails per a single SMTP session (our server will not let you send more at a time);
- 300 mails of the same content per day or 5000 mails of the same content per month (all mails above the limit will be dropped by the server).
I think this is to prevent spammers (understandably) but my email list is all opt in. So i am not sure what to do here. I really need a reliable way to send my newsletter. If you can help me find a solution there will be more programming work n the future but I really need a competent person--thanks.
