Question about using SMTP Mail vs PHP Mail w/ SpeakUp! plugin
First, want to thank you for a great plugin. It is doing absolutely everything I need it to.
Here’s my question: My host provider is limiting me to 750 mails/hour. I’m live w/ my petition and it’s going better than I thought and I’m worried that I’m going to hit that limit. I’ve been reading up on SMTP and how it could use gmail as a mail service. I’m still not very familiar w/ how this would work. So couple of questions I’m hoping you can help me with:
1) would using gmail as a mail service, bypass the 750 mail/hour set via my host? if so,
2) if I use gmail as a mail service, does that mean that all of the “from” addresses being sent by the plugin will be @gmail.com? If so, that’s no good for me, as I’m sending e-mails to elected officials, and I want them to come from actual constituent addresses.
I know these aren’t really questions about the plugin itself, but any help would be appreciated.
