I think this article should come with a disclaimer. :)

The reason people might wanna use MailChimp or other services is that their IP's are not blacklisted, known to email-providers, properly encrypted etc.

Without all of that, there's a really good chance the email's will end up blackholed or in the spam folder.

Not bashing on the article here, but just so everyone understands that this should not be used in a production environment with customers if you want them to get your emails.

For personal projects & prototypes then this approach is fine. :)

Thanks Sebastian. Is there a way to avoid my servers being black listed?

It's not something I have delved into personally. :)

I would probably look the other way around, and look to get whitelisted with the various larger email providers somehow.

It's also possible they have a common third-party one can get whitelisted with such as spamhaus.org/

There's bound to be some articles on how to not get spam'canned out there that would be worth looking up. :)

Yup. Makes sense not reinventing the wheel!
