    I want to send email to my mailing list using an SMTP.

    I plan to use sendgrid.

    Which email address should I use?

    I have 4 websites set up on hostgator, do I need to set up a separate domain so that I don't get "blacklisted" or will I be ok since I am using an SMTP relay?

    Cheers

    Yes, you'll be fine, your sending via sendgrid servers so it will be their ips that are at risk - but obviously if you have high bounce rates then they will probably stop your account before their ips get blacklisted.

    Thanks for the response David.

    So if I hear you correctly, I can use my normal domain name, and relay it through SendGrid.

    How can I avoid high bounce rates?

    If it's an opt-in list of yours, you should be ok. Otherwise, another host is best for security. The reason is even people who subscribed a week ago will be so darn stupid they won't remember it and complain to the ISP (your relay) and your host.

    i can build you a smtp server for a very low price.
    Vps cost $30 + service fee for setting up.

    you can simply install cpanel trial version in vps and make smtp from there and send emails. I think sendrid will suspend your account if they see bounce and spam complaints.
