7 - Method

7.1 - Third party

Using a dedicated email service provider is the most easy and secure way to send email

7.2 - Host Provider

7.3 - SMTP

7.4 - Dedicated Server

On a dedicated server, you may use your own website rather than using an SMTP connection to send email.

  • The IP address of your server should not be blacklisted. See spam score

7.5 - Personal Email provider

You cannot send emails using your personal Yahoo, Gmail, Outlook, AOL, etc. in the FROM address. The emails might:

  • not be delivered at all, like on Yahoo,
  • or display a warning, like “Be careful with this message” on Gmail which warns about the recipient that he might be spoofed.
