So we're not particularly proud of this, but some email services do throttle the amount of emails you can send out.
Google specifically imposes the following limits:
- For @gmail.com accounts: 500 emails within a rolling 24 hour period
- For G Suite accounts: 2,000 emails within a rolling 24 hour period
Gmail also imposes a couple of other rules which may affect your limits too, such as:
- If you use BCC, this counts against your total recipients count which is a limit of 10,000 recipients per 24 hours.
- G Suite accounts require that you have cumulatively paid them $30 in order to be taken out of the "trial limit". We recommend making a manual payment to change your limits.
If you do send more than the specified amount, our system will automatically halt sending emails out until that period has lapsed. If you are planning on sending more than 50,000 emails in any given month, please let us know and we'll be happy to help out!
