A basic and important knowledge about sending ability / limitation and whether the emails can be received by the receivers

Hello everyone,

The sending ability / limitation, and whether the emails can be received by the receivers are relied on your SMTP server and / or SMTP account, our email sender (Auto Mail Sender™ Birthday Edition, Auto Mail Sender™ File Edition and Auto Mail Sender™ Standard Edition) do not control these.

Auto Mail Sender Site

What is sending ability / limitation?
For instance:

  • AA eMail server only allows you to send to 100 recipients at most in an eMail.
  • BB eMail server only allows you to send up to 500 emails in one day.
  • CC eMail server only allows you to send to 200 recipients at most in one day.
  • DD eMail server does not allow you to send two or more emails within 2 minutes.
  • EE eMail server does not allow you to send 20 or more emails within 1 hour.

Why the emails cannot be received by the receivers?
There are some common reasons:

  • Delivered to the spam / junk folder.
  • Rejcected by the eMail server / account.
  • Your SMTP server cannot reach receiver’s email server (network reason, e.g. DNS error).
  • Receiver’s eMail account does not exist.
  • Receiver’s eMail account is disabled or discontinued.
  • Receiver’s mailbox is full.

When email card or send cards/ecard/messages by our emailers (Auto Mail Sender™ Birthday Edition, Auto Mail Sender™ File Edition and Auto Mail Sender™ Standard Edition), you may encounter above failed sendings, at that time, please check if your SMTP server / email account has these limitations, and above reason for receiver’s eMail server and / or eMail account.

Because our email senders 100% do not limit these, for above circumstances, you need to check your SMTP server/account first, and you may need to contact the email service provider or your system administrator.

P.S. the limitations for all licenses of our email senders have already listed on their order pages.

Why are Enterprise licenses more expensive than Commercial licenses in our automatic birthday email sender?

Hello everyone,

As you know, in our automatic birthday email sender – Auto Mail Sender Birthday Edition (AMSBE), compare with the same number of persons (for Enterprise licenses, persons = employees, for Commercial licenses, persons = contacts), Enterprise licenses (EL) are more expensive than Commercial licenses (CL).

For instance:
birthday email greeting price question
As above, in our email greeting software – AMSBE, Commercial license (1,000 contacts) with Lifetime upgrades sells for US $119.99, but Enterprise license (1,000 employees) with Lifetime upgrades sells for US $449.99!!

Why??

Because:
EL serves your internal employees, and all your employees will enjoy EL’s service (send free ecards/messages greetings) on their birthdays or some festivals. So, you need to pay EL fee for your company and every employee. As above example, it only costs you $0.45/employee, not expensive :)

For another situation – CL: it serves for your external contacts, such as friends, business, schoolmates, etc. They are not your company’s people, so you do not need to pay CL fee for them, so it only costs $0.12/contact in above example, also a reasonable price :)

Please note that: CL can also create the internal contacts (under Colleagues category), but it is only used for a few colleagues as usual for below reasons:

  • Calls “Colleagues” not “Employees”.
  • Only stands on the PC (which installed and running AMSBE) owner’s ground, not your company’s ground.
  • It’s hard to organize and manage the “Colleagues” without the “Enterprise structure”, in the EL, you can organize and manage all employees in “Enterprise structure” according to their departments.

Note:
1. This article is also applicable for comparing with the prices of Enterprise licenses and Personal licenses.
2. The sample prices are only applicable for current prices (post time), if they are different than you seen on the order page, please subject to the latter.
