New features and updates

Besides the incremental (and thus unique) ID SMTPeter gives to your templates, API endpoint now also accepts the template name as an identifier. Peter will initially search for a matching template ID. If he fails to find one, he will look for a matching template name and send out the mail based on that template.

Pure HTML templates

You probably already know that SMTPeter is not only an email gateway, but also a centralized template store. The editor for the templates has recently been enhanced. It now is possible to write the HTML code of the templates yourself, and you are no longer forced to use a drag-and-drop editor (although if you like the drag-and-drop editor, you can of course still use it).

Gmail is accepting emails up to 50MB

The likelihood of a bounced email "because of a big attachment" has dropped tremendously if you are using Gmail. Although sending emails over 25MB with this client is still impossible.

New: automatic webversion hosting

We've added a new feature to SMTPeter. If you use the SMTPeter cloud service to send email, you can now simply add a "click here for the webversion" link to your messages, without hosting the webversion yourself! SMTPeter recognizes the webversion link in your email, and hosts the webversion for you. This means that you no longer have to host your own webversions, and that you can easily have a personalized webversion for all your receivers.

Seven tricks to boost your open-rate

In SMTPeter, it is possible to see if your emails are opened or clicked. If you notice that your open-rate is low, it might be because your emails do not get delivered to the recipient's inbox, but rather to their spam folder. Or your readers get so much mail they don't even make it to yours. Maybe you're sending mail to people who don't want it? To overcome (or prevent) this, we've collected some tricks to one-up your inbox placement.
