is it okay to use gmail to send automated emails for your website via SMTP? i know there are services like Amazons SES, but i don't know if i need it.
I want to only send the following types of automated emails:
- Payment receipts
- Password reset codes
- Anything related to the user's money or security
I do not want to send newsletters or any types of mass emails. I have no idea how many emails i'm potentially going to send.
- Is this reliable?
- Is it allowed by google's TOS? i am using a free google apps account
anything else i should know? thanks
