    Can Sendy be used to mail off of the local hosting mail server?

    (I'm aware of the advantages of mailing off of Amazon SES, but that's actually not actually my question.)

    Hi @AskKim,

    Can Sendy be used to mail off of the local hosting mail server?

    Yes you can. But links in your email that were all converted to trackable links will be broken when your recipients click on them because your server aren't online.

    Thanks.

    Best regards,
    Ben

    Hey Ben, think I mangled my wording...

    I meant local as in the mail server that is local to the hosting account. ie: my dedicated server on Hostgator

    Rather than meaning from my local PC which doesn't sport a spiffy always-online status LOL

    Okay so I've gotten a little closer. But it looks like there is zero bounce handling if I skip SES and use SMTP? Is that right? If so, then that's kinda game-over for me and this particular projects needs. I've got arpreach licenses but was hoping to swap it out for Sendy :-\

    Yes that is correct. Sendy is designed for Amazon SES, so if you using other SMTP services, bounces and complaints needs to be manually processed.
