    This is a great idea! We use this with Articles in IP.Content. I hope this feature is standard for forum posts at some point.

    I'm not positive I'd wait. IPB will release the public beta in a few weeks? How long will it take for a truly stable release? 6-9 months - at a minimum ? Guess it really depends on your budget and launch timeline.

    w00t!!!

    I'm really psyched about this feature! It'll save tons of time and make things so much easier to update.

    Very nifty!

    That was a joke.
     
    I meant to say.....You could "technically" run a mail server on any computer that has an IP. I don't suggest you do this since your IP will be blocked in no time.....regardless if you're spamming or sending legit emails.

    We send 250,000 emails via Mandrill in about 10-20 minutes.

    About $50.
     
     
    Install the mail server on your spare laptop and use your cable IP while you're at it  :thumbsup:
     
     
     
    It's not about sending, it's about deliverability = (total sent - (total soft bounces + total hard bounces)) % by total sent)

    Headaches ?! It should take you 5 minutes to set up Mandrill. We send 1+ million emails per month and have tried many solutions. We moved from SenGrid a few months ago and we're really really satisfied with Mandrill. The pricing and feature set is better than anything else out there.

    I've mistakenly posted and sent PM's logged in as a member countless times.  This was one of those little annoyances that bugged the %^#$ out of me! Glad it's resolved in 4.
