We’re strong believers in the power of education – all SMTP2GO staff are encouraged to be lifelong learners – and this is why we offer a special discount for non-profit schools, colleges and educational institutions.
We appreciate that a college’s sending requirements change throughout the academic year and our plans are flexible to accommodate this. We understand that the beginning of term might require more quota than the quieter summer months. We also offer real-time reporting, with open rates and click tracking, to see who’s received what and when. It makes keeping track easy because there’s enough else going on, right?!
Many educational institutions, from all over the world, use our service and we enjoy discovering how SMTP2GO helps improve email deliverability for their institution.
Here we speak to the Senior Systems Engineer at Berry College, Georgia, USA.
Can you please tell us a little more about what your institution does?
Berry College is the world’s largest contiguous campus, and we offer students a high quality, private college experience and education that connects students with opportunities and work experience that they would not otherwise have available to them. Our student work program is far and above other schools!
What made you look for an SMTP service provider?
We needed additional abilities and capabilities for services outside of our own network to relay mail for us. We also found that our SPF record was growing uncontrollably large and needed a single mail relay that allowed quite a bit of flexibility in spoofing mail headers and such.
Do you use us to handle delivery for your school management system?
Yes/No. We utilize SMTP2GO for parts of our document imaging and forms management systems alongside one of our LMS and our ERP systems (both Jenzabar). We deliver mail into Office 365 mailboxes for students, faculty and staff from these systems through SMTP2Go. We also have an on-site, full service post office that relays through this service. There are a number of other services, too.
If you can recall, how did you find the sign up/onboarding process?
Simple and quick! We found the service just via Reddit and online searches.
If you were to recommend us to another college, what would you say?
This is the best, most affordable third-party mail relaying service that we have ever used!
