SMTP2GO is headquartered in Christchurch, New Zealand and, every once in a while, we like to offer a shout out to other awesome NZ-based companies! We hear from Hesham Jones, who’s the IT Team Lead for Rocket Languages, a company that falls under the larger librosmedia.com umbrella.
Rocket Languages was borne out of frustration at what was available in the language learning space. Starting with Rocket Spanish, Rocket Languages now have more than 14 different language courses. All of the courses use the Rocket Express Learning System, which uses proven scientific principles to get the user speaking and understanding a new language fast.

If you were to recommend us to a friend, what would you say?
SMTP2GO is simple, easy to use and has all the essentials needed for an SMTP service provider. The important information such as send rates and logs are displayed clearly and usefully. We’ve used Mailgun as well, but found that we don’t use 90% of the features and it is clunky and hard to navigate, especially the logging.
