Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"There is no need for me to set up security.""The best feature is that Amazon SES provides verified email messages.""We use the tool for transactional emails and marketing.""Amazon SES can handle a high volume of emails, making it suitable for organizations with large email lists or that need to send a large number of emails on a regular basis.""It is highly available and scalable. It is also highly reliable. I don't lose any of the messages or emails. If there is an issue where the email sent operation failed, Amazon as a platform ensures that the send operation is retried, and the email reaches its destination. This way, it is highly reliable.""The product is very user-friendly.""Amazon SES is very easy to configure.""The most valuable thing is that emails sent through SES have a delivery rate of greater than ninety percent."

"Running email campaigns is easy and straightforward.""MailChimp's most important functionality is its automation feature.""MailChimp has many capabilities.""I use Mailchimp for digital marketing purposes, such as creating and managing email campaigns, collecting data, and integrating with WordPress websites.""It allows for dragging and dropping, which is much faster than writing HTML and CSS.""The email scheduling has been quite useful."

Cons
"The product should improve technical support.""There is room for improvement in the support. It's just that customer support, though good, takes time to resolve issues.""When we first set up an email on Amazon SES, they had to verify it, which was not fast enough.""There is room for improvement in the scalability.""The only issue is the price, which is far too expensive.""It would be ideal to have detailed data and reporting on email opens, clicks, bounces, and other metrics, as well as integration with other business intelligence tools.""I would like to see detailed reports on email success and failure rates.""Email service is definitely a requirement from an enterprise standpoint. Many organizations have their own on-premise email services, which take a lot of memory, backup, and other resources. If we can have a completely managed backup solution where we have a tiered backup or a tiered archival to be able to retrieve emails, it would be great. I would like to be able to retrieve emails in real-time (hot retrieval), over the 90-days period (warm retrieval), and over the one-year period (cold retrieval). It would be useful to have tiered backup and retrieval. It would help us in managing emails better and have a better backup solution. So, backup is something that we require."

"The solution could be easier to use.""Mailchimp could be more user-friendly for setting up WordPress websites. Some of the complex settings can be time-consuming to configure. So, setting up Mailchimp for WordPress websites can be time-consuming for an average user.""It needs more formatting flexibility, such as the ability to wrap text around photos.""The solution should improve its reporting feature. There should be more transparency around API development. At the moment, the clients are pushing custom API into the mail, so we don't have too much visibility regarding what endpoints they're pushing the data into.""A standalone system for private servers would be ideal.""I don't have any issues with the service."
