CiviSMTP eliminates the need for you to setup and maintain your own email infrastructure for sending bulk emails from your CiviMail and processing bounces and unsubscribes. The service also includes high deliverability rates and black list monitoring ensuring highest deliverability for your bulk emails.

CiviSMTP was founded by Shane Hill in 2006. After going through the process of setting up and maintaining all of the server email infrastructure for an installation of CiviCRM for one of his projects, he reached out to the CiviCRM community to see if there was an interest in making a service that would take care of this. The idea was to let users just enter some settings and start sending bulk emails from CiviMail. No need for tech knowledge on mail server setup, bounce processing setup or spending time on monitoring black lists and deliverability scores. The community loved the idea and that's how CiviSMTP came about.

Today our goal is the same - make it super easy for you to send bulk emails from your CiviMail and make sure they get delivered to your constituents' inboxes. We aim at providing excellent Customer Support and if you ever have anything you'd like to tell us don't hesitate to email us at - we welcome any and all feedback!
