  1. Yes Kane. I recall, while I was trying out Wrike, with few people in team, they were very quick to understand the whole concept behind Project Management. And for Marketing team it turned out to be the best tool.

  2. Rinku, unfortunately, Email marketing never works on non-opt-in email list. So, please don’t waste time and money on sending emails to non-opt-in emails. You will never get any return or reply.

    Good post Drazen πŸ™‚

  27. Matt, as far as I know, some shared hosting providers do not support sending emails through external SMTP servers, like Amazon SES / Mandrill. You may get Sendy installed properly on your shared server setup, but they will block you from using external SMTP. So, the most preferred is to use cloud based hosting which can also provide you dedicated ip.

  28. Configuring SMTP relay with Sendy on server requires quite of technical skill and when everything is correct, emails donot land up in spam. With any email to land in inbox, your technical setup should be correct and upto mark, along with this, your domain name and email content play very important role.
    If you suspect that Gmail is marking you emails sent through Amazon SES as spam, then you can test, sending emails through Mandrill replay. Also, not getting email inside inbox, is quite personalized experience, it may be possible for you emails are landing in spam but, for others your email may not land in spam.

    Hope, these points will help in making right decision.


  29. Hello Doug,

    Regarding this, I have written an email to SumoMe team, hopefully, they will come with some solution.
    Other solution can be using Pro subscription of SumoMe and adding Sendy form HTML code to it. This should work.

  30. Hey Molly,

    Thanks for the update and really appreciate your compliment.
    I have made the required updates in post. You can have a look through.

    Hey Patricia,

    You can manually compare the email lists with in csv excel file and remove the duplicates.
    MailerLite should be compatible with Mandrill. But can you please explain me little more, so, that I can analyse the scenario, what kind of integration are you planning to have?

  32. You can map Sendy to host on subdomain and then use LAMP / LEMP server. Its quite simple, or, you can service from EasySendy.

  33. Ankit Prakash May 16, 2015 at 4:41 AM

    Thanks for the update Mia.
    I will look into this tool πŸ™‚

  34. Hey Adam,

    Off-late we have been doing a lot of research on this. And, we have measured everything with open rate of the email campaigns. Text emails sent from Amazon SES has very high open rate compared to the html/ multi variate emails.
    Recently, I tried to answer this issue on Quora, request you to have a look through the answer here:

    Hope these points will help you.

    Hey Nick,

    Thanks for your reply. And, great to see that you are planning to go ahead with Mailchimp.
    Nick, I must say, Mailchimp has great email automation facility and worth going for a paid plan. But before that, I would say, you must design your email trigger rules. This will help you analyse the requirement and inturn will help in selecting proper application for drip email marketing application.
    Hope my advice will help you in taking right decision.

  36. If you are getting started with DigitalOcean then you can use prebuilt image of Ubuntu which has apache, mysql and php preinstalled.
    On that image you can install Sendy.
    Sendy Get started guide is available here:, this was quite helpful for me during installation.
    If you have any issue, you can refer to Sendy Troubleshoot page:
    The other post where I said it took 2 months, that post is probably 1-2 old than this post, if you will notice.
    You can also refer this guide:

    Hello Erik,

    Mailerlite has awesome list segmentation feature, using which you can filter your subscribers easily. You can also use “Check All” button which appear above the the email list.

  38. Hey Miguel,

    Sendy uses Amazon SNS notification service which integrates with Amazon Api to provide bounce and spam notification into your Sendy dashboard. So, you need to configure Amazon SES with SNS and then allow Amazon api through IAM to communicate with Sendy.

    Hope, this comment will help you. πŸ™‚

  39. Thanks for the comment Himali.
    I will definitely give it a try, and I can see, brightpod is specially for managing marketing projects. This will definitely interest me.

  40. Jena, can you please tell the name of software which you are using as your own setup? Might be helpful for other readers.

  41. I have check Elasticemail, upon your recommendation. It looks interesting, prices are good option for good reputed email senders.

  42. Definitely Kane. Mailerlite can be a great try, beside Mailchimp, Contant Contact, Campaignmonitor and Getresponse. Give a try and let me know how do you feel about this?

  43. Thanks for reply David.
    Yes overtime, I have seen many people testing Sendy with Interspire side by side. And some of them have started to shifting to Sendy too. Along with Sendy you can use GetDrip, which is great drip marketing automation tool.

  44. Hello Juan,

    Thanks for the compliments. Hope my detailed post helped you.

    Now coming to your question:

    So now, The Big question. In your post, you mention additional installation for the following services
    β€œPowerMTA, with DMARC, ADSP, EHLO” in other to send out β€œ1,500,000 emails per month”.

    β€œPowerMTA, with DMARC, ADSP, EHLO” are required when you want to setup your own SMTP server. But in your case, you are already using Amazon SES, which takes care of all these. So, you need not to worry about anything like these. But, dont forge to verify DMIK and SPF records on your domian name.

    Regarding email limits, first start sending emails to the users with small limit at Amazon SES then gradually ask them for increasing the limit, they would be happy to help you out.

    Hope these answer would help you in making decision.

    Let me know if you have more doubt.

  45. Yes Roger Philips, you can easily create auto-responder through Sendy.
    It’s a wonder feature of Sendy.

  46. That’s awesome Jack, let me check this.
    I’m coming across this for the first time. So, can configure this AuthMailer with Sendy or any other E-mail marketing software?
    Thanks for sharing it πŸ™‚
