How many emails can I send at a time?

I have an email list for 30,000 people and I'd like to send an invitation to my new site.

Can I send such a large number of emails at once?

And is Invite Plugin the right solution for that?

    Hi there @icndream

    I hope you are well today.

    I believe that e-newsletter would be better for this https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/e-newsletter/ as then you can add all the emails via a .csv file, the problem is your hosting most probably won't allow you to send that amount of emails at once, it would end up getting you put on a spam list.

    You'd need to either manually limit or use WP_CRON

    Thank you!

    Kind Regards
    Jack.

    This is a similar topic as mine, so I'll just post my question here :slight_smile:

    I haven't used e-newsletter yet, but I'd like to. I'm also worried about my web host not allowing me to send many emails at once, so what is a good solution for that? Would using gmail SMTP allow me to send as many emails at one time as I'd like? Or is there the same restriction with gmail?

    I understand this is one reason why using a third-party service like MailChimp is helpful. So how do all the users of e-newsletter get away with sending huge batches of emails to their subscribers on their own hosting server?

    If this is something I have to ask my host about, I can do that. But I'm hoping to hear from the staff and community here about how we can send high volume emails with this plugin on our own hosting and not get banned or put on a spam list.

    Thanks!
