Outbound email campaigns are easily throttled by messages per hour and help keep you compliant with your service provider.Alternate server port support
- The software offers support for servers that require a different port (other than the standard port 25). This allows Email Marketing Director to account for any increased protection your ISP may impose in the future to protect against unauthorized mail sending, email hijacking and IP spoofing.
It is extremely important to know what kind of restrictions your ISP has on bulk email sending. There may be either a size limit, a batch size limit or a complete ban on sending bulk email. In general, the larger the ISP, the more
restrictive they are.
