I'm building a web app from which I need to send out email notifications to the users who subscribe for them. Say my domain name is
mywebapp.com. I'm using Google Apps to host my email service currently. Ideally I would like to send all my notifications using Google Apps itself and that's what I've been doing all this while using
msmtp. But then Google Apps has a limit to the number of emails that can be sent per day which is around 4000 emails.
So is it possible to use Google Apps to host my primary email service for mywebapp.com and then run my own email server to just send email from say
This way, I can still use google apps for checking my regular email and also eliminate the upper limit on the number of emails I can send out per day, since I'll be running my own server.
Also, what packages do I need to install on Ubuntu?
I've looked at postfix, but as far as my understanding goes it is a package that can fetch email. Can I use it to send email using a cron job for example?
Links to useful resources would be helpful.
