Transactional In-App Email

Just had a great conversation with SendGrid – we’re already using their API for sending in-app messanging transactionally, at work. The API is easy to use, and you have great reporting on email deliverability through the web interface. Just chatted with two representatives at Women2.0′s Startup Weekend event- they’re sponsoring some prizes.

I’m also a fan of MailChimp- and have setup various clients on them. The Flash/UI interface is really great, and the reporting on the various email campaigns is also easy. They, like SendGrid, have a very communicative and readily available customer service – for engineering and design.

Most modern SMTP hosting solutions also include IMAP, POP3 and so forth. Such hosting is not expensive, relatively, but it is an additional expense, which can be a very important consideration for small businesses, especially small startups. [...]

  5. “…a fan of MailChimp”? I used to use them but moved to for better customer service and cheaper pricing. Like you say their customer service is readily available but no way near as helpful!
