      smtp please help :-/

      I was with tiscali for 5 years. Each week i sent out 40 thousand + emails to people on my email newsletter list for my business (not spam) and i sent these using smtp.tiscali.co.uk which worked fine and no problems. I swapped to sky today as the costs were better and i now discover that sky dont give me an smtp to use unless its through my new sky email address which is no good as i am a business and need to use the domain which ive always used to send emails out. I contacted the people that i got my domain from but they tell me that i am restricted to 1000 email send out per day through their servers so thats not an option. I took a look at online companys offering smtp but they all want 100's pounds per month for the amount im sending out

      Does anyone have any suggestions please as this very badly is affecting my business. thank you for your time

      Sky don't support business users. In fact the Sky T&C's specifically say domestic users only. So you will need to find another route to running your business. Perhaps your last supplier was the best option?

      Even a Skyuser SMTP account would be no use to you as it is restricted to 50 per day. With 40,000 customers you should really have a business account, as pointed out Sky Broadband is a domestic service.
