E-mail Provider

Sending mass emails from a web mail account

 

You may send your emails via a webmail provider like Microsoft (hotmail) or Google (gmail). Most of these webmailers provide access via a web interface (using your web browser) or via email client applications (e.g. Outlook). In any case your webmail provider offers you an incoming- and outgoing email server.

Because they are often used for spam emails, most webmail providers have set sending limits.
