Earlier this month, I needed to be able to send automated email in order to send daily roundups of stuff produced by my bots. Most of the APIs I saw for sending lots of email was for mass marketing (with the kind of pricing and data policies you’d expect to come along with that). So, I thought, email is well-established*, so it must be in reach of the common developer! I’ll just set up my own email server and mailing list.
Well, you know how this is going to go.
