Sending Tons of emails from your Ruby on Rails Application

A correct way to send tons of massive emails from your website is queuing the emails and send them one by one. If you send all at once directly from your site some hosting servers may allows only some amount of emails per hour. Shared hosting servers allow you send only 25 emails from your site per hour. Fortunately there is one plugin available for Rails which can store the outgoing emails in database as a queue and send them eventually. That plugin is called ar_mailer you can install it and send tons of emails happlily. See the process of how to install and more at
