    i don't feel like dealing with email for my site, i have my old host handling it still now, but i would like better service since they bounce a lot of my outgoing mails.

    anyone have a good suggestion of who to use?

    why are they "bouncing" your outgoing.

    If the address is not valid, no one is gonna have any luck.

    Actually, I believe they have a hosted service now that will allow you to use your own domain. But, in any case, you could just forward email from your domain to your Gmail and setup Gmail to send mail from your domain address.

    Not saying it's necessarily the best option, but it is a viable option.

    i am sending to valid email address from valid email addresses, it just randomly bounces emails, sometimes denying whole blocks of emails (like one every 30 seconds)

    how many are you sending out?

    would you prefer I call it "bulk email" (same damn thing)

    I don't plan on sending that many out. When the user registers there will be the authenitication email, when the buy a sub there will be receipts, when certain events are triggered there will be system emails sent, ect. Like notifications you can get from threads on OT if you sign up for that option.

    I consider spam unwanted and unsolicited emails :hs:

    The volume depends on how many users use the service basically
