I am dealing with problems with SparkPost because they offered 15000 emails in the first month and now they lowered to 500.
Unless you have any interest in SparkPost you have to create a free alternative to SparkPost. I have free unlimited emails from my hosting and it does not make sense be paying to send emails. This situation creates a big limitation for your InboundNow solution.
To overcome the problem i though to upgrade SparkPost to 15000 emails per month which costs $14 per month.
The next problem is. We need to have a SparkPost user for each InboundNow site. I have two right now and i am thinking to have more. You see the exponential increase in costs?
You need to provide a solution for this?
May be using one SparkPost user for all sites or use my hosting email provider.
I think the time has come to bunker down and introduce wp_mail as a service provider. This will allow the host to send emails. We’ll lose some stats like rejection tracking and bounce tracking, but it will be worth it.
I have my reasons for putting this off, but I agree that the way SparkPost has progressed with their free tier — it has continuously drained value from my offering.
Good news. I’m pushing 188.8.131.52 which includes wp_mail as a service.
I’ve tested most everything I could think of and all my tests are showing positive. I don’t have a beta team for this venture. So I’m releasing this feature in beta mode. Please be sure to pre-test all your activity when using wp_mail as your service.
Very excited for Inbound PRO to finally have this capability. Imo it ramps the value of our offering up and will restore lost value.
Thanks for your help, encouragement, and patients along the way.
Kind regards & ttys,
