What are Email Sending Limits of Email Service Providers?

Table of Contents

Every email service provider has its own email sending limits. These limits are based on a daily, hourly or per-minute basis. Your email account may get blocked if you aren’t aware of your email provider’s limits.

As big marketing campaigns will have numerous emails with their follow-ups, so always know about the email sending limits before your email campaign goes into the risk of not getting delivered leading to account block. 

Let’s go through various email service providers with their sending limits. 

Amazon SES

To most people, Amazon SES seems quite complicated, but what they don’t know is that they can send over 10,000 emails for just 1$ and that makes it the cheapest SMTP sender among all other providers.

Here’s an easy and step by step guide to set up Amazon SES for sending emails.
