Bulk Email Server in South Africa
When sending bulk email to people from South Africa the best scenario is, of course, to also have your sending servers hosted in South Africa.
With years of testing, I got the best solution for all your e-marketing needs in South Africa. A system that will ensure best email deliverability and once setup is super easy to use.
A Bulk Email System on your dedicated server or VPS in South Africa with complete freedom about what kind of content you send and who you send it to. We want this kind of service where we aren’t limited by rules and policies. Freedom all the way straight to potential future customers inbox. Of course, there is a lot of technical work that needs to be done and it needs to be done right to ensure perfect email deliverability.
Email marketing is hard with writing all newsletters, autoresponders, doing A/B tests, making triggers and so on. Even if you do everything perfect and your system has not been configured the way it should be all your hard work will be for nothing. Your emails will end up in Spam or what is even worst they will bounce without ever being delivered.
Software use for Bulk Email in South Africa
Let's talk about the software we'll be using on our main server and on MTA servers. Believe me, in all these years I tried everything from Interspire Email Marketer, MailWizz, Mautic. Luckily the RIO in email marketing is so high I can afford all software licences for something I bought just to test and will actually never use. The Email Marketing Software I am using now is Mumara. And even tho I own not one but 4 licences, I am using a nulled version. Why? it's easier and cheaper for me as I have more than 4 installs of it and you can too.
On the Main server, we will use Mumara as an Email Marketing Application, but what exactly is Mumara? If you want to compare Mumara vs. Interspire Email Marketer lets say it like this. Mumara is Interspires younger, stronger and a lot more handsome (useful) brother. It's in active development and packed with so many features that will make your work easier and faster.
On MTA server we will, of course, use PowerMTA. PowerMTA provides unsurpassed reliability and delivery execution in a stable SMTP environment with granular connection controls. Superior message throughput simplified setup and configuration and real-time analysis.
The Best Long Run Bulk Emailing Solution in South Africa
Let me show you how my bulk email system looks and then I will tell you why I choose setup/configuration like this. Before we start I have to tell you the difference between two different types of servers that are in my Bulk Email System hosted in South Africa.
My whole system is made out of two different types of servers
The Main Server is the server where your Email Marketing Software (EMS) is installed. Since we are getting ready to set up a bulk email server with an option to scale it up if needed I recommend you pick a bit more powerful VPS for it. Since I am not from South Africa my main server is with a hosting provider that is closer to me.
MTA server is a server where PowerMTA is installed. These servers are doing all the sending. This is just one layer of protection to keep your MTA servers away from your Main server. In case there is ever a problem your main server will never be taken down since it's not doing any sending at all. MTA server can be any budget VPS with at least 1GB RAM. I am using cheap $2 servers for sending and currently have 32 in my network of sending servers. All are hosted with providers in South Africa.
I've been in this business for almost 15 years and saw every possible scenario. Since the lists, I sent to aren't actually mine it is normal that from time to time my sending servers are taken down due to spam complaints.
Let's take a look at what happens when you have:
Everything on one server
You bought a super expensive VPS with 128GB RAM and 256 IPs. In case there is a problem you will lose everything and if you don't have a backup and let's be honest, most don't, you will be forced to start from scratch. Can you imagine all those hours of work lost? And guess what, all emails you already sent out and links in them will become useless. Maybe it's better to buy a gun, eh?
Another bad thing with setups like this is that usually, your IPs will come in a range. Why is this bad? When blacklistings will start rolling in they will simply blacklist your whole IP range and you are done. Bye, bye inbox!
Now let's take a look what will happen in the same scenario, but this time with my setup. You got so many spam complaints that your VPS provider decides it's time to take you offline. Since all complaints are regarding one MTA only that server will be taken offline. Your Main server and other MTAs (which should be hosted on other account/providers) will keep working and continue sending emails.
You will have to setup a new sending server but by using my guide this shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes once you get used to the process.
Do you see the difference?
With single server setup, we were talking about buying a gun. With my setup, this is just a few clicks and a new sending server will be up and ready to start sending.
Of course, it is more work, but believe me, it is worth it. After your whole bulk email system is taken offline you will never sleep again. For me, meh, doesn't really affect me, a few clicks and it's back.
