We use Google for Business for our staff emails. But we also want to send out automated emails as part of a web-app. Gmail limits the number of emails you can send with a cap (a few hundred a day?), and the automated emails will exceed that.

Is it possible to have e.g. alice@mydomain.com handled by gmail, whilst automated@mydomain.com uses a different email server?

Or is the solution to use two different domains?

Thank you for your help!


You can send outgoing emails from any server you want. You should add that server's IP address to your SPF record, though. Most email services like sendgrid will have instructions on how to do this.
