I'm running a forum with 5,000+ users and I'd love to keep them updated by e-mailing them.
I'm running XAMPP Lite and I don't know how to setup e-mail on it. Is there a guide somewhere? Does everyone use someone else's SMTP server? My friend set it up so we were using Google's SMTP, but this only allows like 100 e-mails per day which just isn't enough as we get 100+ new users sign up every day alone.
What to do? I have very little experience in e-mail side of things.
