How I sent 7000 emails for 0.7$

    You're using shared hosting, they can ban you for sending too much emails thru their server. Why? Sending bulk email campaigns will affect their servers and other clients on this machine, they don't want to get banned from Google/Yahoo or whatever.

    From their TOS:

    We take a zero tolerance stance against sending of unsolicited e-mail, bulk emailing, and spam. "Safe lists" and purchased lists will be treated as spam. Any user who sends out spam will have their account terminated with or without notice.

    Sorry for being that guy, but it's a big thing for hosting companies and your account not going to last long.

      Hey Mac, Sendy doesn't send the emails, it use Amazon SES to send the emails that's the trick. My shared hosting doesn't send a single email, everything is handled by Amazon. Here's more info: Brands like HTC and Vodaphone also use Amazon SES so it's really scalable... Not breaking any of the Stablehost TOS :)
