Ziff Davis Inc
It works great as an onsite relay to provide email sending functionality without having to pass through the firewall in order to reach the Office 365 gateway. This is particularly evident when using older programs. A lot of the older, no longer developed, programs will only allow a hard coded port to send email. Office 365 uses a non-standard SMTP port for security. This does not allow the hard coded SMTP ports to use this service. Exchange gives you the control to change those ports and securely use the standards without compromise.

I use it for sending promos and to present new products to existing and new customers. I'd say it's best for fields such as marketing, cosmetics, online courses, forums, meetings, and other types of businesses. Actually, any type of business can use such software to keep in touch with its' audience.

Cons
Ziff Davis Inc
  • As with any technology on a server, we sometimes see issues with downtime related to network changes or firewall updates.
  • It can be a challenge to work with some of our older applications when the TLS feature is used.
  • I wish there was a more direct way to reliably use SMTP for mass email sends without the fear of being blacklisted.

Office 365 does use secure non-standard ports for SMTP connectivity causing a problem with older programs. SMTP Email Delivery from Exchange solves this problem by giving the network admin full control over ports and specific program connections. While we do use both Office 365 and the SMTP Email Delivery we find that a mix is needed in order to meet all expectations for our end users. The majority of our SMTP communications, for users, go through Office 365 while the majority of our applications and servers do go through the SMTP Email Delivery service.

Unisender is cheaper than other softwares like this. It starts at $12 per month for everything. It has more features. The UX is less complex, responsive. It's cloud based, I can access Unisender from any device, anywhere. Overally I like it more than Mailchimp. Unisender's tech support is rapid - they help you right away.

Return on Investment
Ziff Davis Inc
  • It's the easiest way to send mail out. No worries about complex configurations.
  • It can be finicky when used in a hybrid Office 365 environment to get the proper pathways secured and working.
  • I wish there were a better way to send out mass emails, on-site, without our domain or server IP being blacklisted.
