    Hello. This is my first time doing e-mail marketing but I guess that's what I need to grow up my company for now. So...I'm planning to start doing some kind of small marketing campaign. I need to send less than 400 e-mails a day and I would like to use Gmail to avoid going to spam with other email service provider. This way, hopefully, I will be able to send the amount I need and hit the inbox.

    I'm looking for a service/software paid or free that could help me with:
    * Tracking e-mails opened and urls clicked.
    * Sending automated e-mails through SMTP (gmail).
    * Integration with other languages / cmd (optional).
    * Manage templates / different campaigns / lists (optional).

    I bet there's a lot of softwares that will do what I need, but I couldn't actually choose one as I don't have experience on this field. So guys, your advices will be highly appreciated.

    Thank you !

    Hi, what you need is a ESP (email service provider) there are 100s to choose from - do you have your own data?

    I'm not completely sure about what that means. I've got some e-mail addresses I want to send to, and also the e-mail templates. I need an automated tool, to do some kind of "basic/small -email marketing" through SMTP using gmail.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Any ideas? I'm still looking for a SMTP Provider. I need to send no more than 250 emails a day, but i would like to send through my domain, or maybe looks like they were sent from my domain name, to look more professional.


    What about Mandrill (Mailchimp)?

    Thank you.

    I have a service which is the best there is in my opinion. You can send thousands of emails a day from your domain without having to worry about getting banned. Send me a message here or Skype if you want to know more about it.

    I just need an SMTP provider / service. I already have a software developed by me to get leads and process a queue to send e-mails.

    Thank you-

    Oh ok that's cool. I used to use software like that a few years ago until they started making it harder to send bulk emails and not get them sent to the spam folder or in some cases they block the messages all together. I'm guessing you have a nice system that keeps your delivery rate up? Do you sell this software or is it just for yourself?

    I did it myself to scrape business from yahoo local, bbb, manta and dexknows and get e-mails to do b2b. I'm using Mandrill (Mailchimp) and it's working really good up to now.
