Mmailer Jump to Story

Daniel Szmulewicz emailed us this weekend to let us know about Mmailer, a Ruby gem for sending personalized bulk email, like a newsletter, through regular SMTP providers like Gmail. Although Gmail and similar providers use various throttling strategies, Mmailer provides you the functionality you need to stay within those limits. You can set things like the amount of time between sending emails, or how long it should wait after sending a bunch of emails.
