Our shared hosting servers do not support bulk mailing. Although we do allow a large number of mails to be sent per hour, if these mails are identified to be bulk mail then they could be blocked. Also, the mails must conform with anti-spam regulations and templates not to be flagged as spam, which is a violation of our AUP.

It's important to remember that other ISPs also have their own bulk mailing regaulations. For example, when Google notes a large number of mails considered bulk mailing routing through their system, they can block or slow down the delivery of mails.

It's general best to use a recognised bulk mailing system like Touchstream or MailChimp in order to make sure your mails arrive where they're supposed to.

Hi Frik

AfriMan is correct. We offer Touchstream as a bulk mailing system. Here's a bit more info on Touchstream.

Touchstream is a powerful, all-in-one email marketing tool that's incredibly easy to use.

From building a mailing list and creating personalized newsletters, to measuring campaign results and sending automated follow up emails, you can manage it all using only your web browser!

This is how it works:

Setup Cost R299.00 (once off);

For Only R230p/m: You can send up to 20 000 emails per month; Additional blocks of emails are sold at 10 000 / 1gig* blocks for R100 per month.

Thus if you would like to send 22 000 emails you will be billed:

Touchstream Basic Rate R230.00 p/m
Touchstream Plus Rate R200.00 p/m

*SPAM or unsolicited mail is not tolerated and accounts will be terminated immediately without refund.
