New dead simple process to upgrade your JangoSMTP account

We've now made it dead simple to upgrade your account.  We always email the account manager alerts when your account is nearing your quota.

In the past, if you were a trusted user with a sending history with JangoSMTP, you had the ability to upgrade your account by yourself through the UI.  If you didn't have an established sending history, however, you had to contact Support, type out a message to request an account upgrade, and then wait for your support ticket to be answered. This was a frustrating process for users that relied on JangoSMTP sending transactional email for their apps seamlessly and transparently.

Now, all users, regardless of sending history, can upgrade their account on their own through the UI.  If you're a trusted user, then your account upgrade will take effect instantly.  If you're not a trusted user, then you can still use the upgrade process in the UI, but your upgrade request will be reviewed by a support team member before taking effect. The review process will only take a few minutes, requests are monitored 24x7.

Microsoft provides classes for sending SMTP emails using the .Net Framework. This example uses System.Net.Mail to assemble then send an email using JangoSMTP.

Download the source code for this example, insert your own JangoSMTP username/password/etc and start sending tracked transactional emails in your application.

MailMessage mailMsg = new MailMessage();

// set the from address
// this must be stored in your from addresses
mailMsg.From = new MailAddress(
    "", "Your Name");

// recipient
mailMsg.To.Add(new MailAddress(
    "", "Recipient Name"));

// set the subject and message portions of the email
mailMsg.Subject = "Test Email Subject";
string text = 
    "This plain text email was sent from an ASP.Net script.";
string html = 
    "<p>This html email was sent from an ASP.Net script.</p>";
        text, null, MediaTypeNames.Text.Plain));
        html, null, MediaTypeNames.Text.Html));

// set up the SMTP client with
SmtpClient smtpClient 
    = new SmtpClient("", 25);
System.Net.NetworkCredential credentials = 
    new System.Net.NetworkCredential(
         "Your JangoSMTP Username", "Your JangoSMTP Password");
smtpClient.Credentials = credentials;

It's easy to send SMTP emails using PHP and JangoSMTP. Just upload the Swift Mailer library to your server, then set up an SMTP email using swift.

This example demonstrates how to set up and send an email from a PHP script using JangoSMTP. Download the source code for this example, insert your own JangoSMTP username/password/etc and you're ready to rock!

// include the Swift Mailer code
include_once "Swift/lib/swift_required.php";

$text = "A plain text message sent from a PHP script!\n";
// set up the HTML portion of the email
$html = <<<EOM
    <p>This is an HTML message sent from a PHP script!
// set the from address
// this must be an address stored in your JangoSMTP settings
$from = array('' => 'Your Name');
// add recipients
$to = array(
  ''=>'Recipient Name'
// set the subject of the email
$subject = 'JangoSMTP Transactional Email from PHP';
// your JangoSMTP login credentials
$username = 'Your JangoSMTP Username';
$password = 'Your JangoSMTP Password';
// setup Swift mailer parameters
$transport = 
    Swift_SmtpTransport::newInstance('', 25);
$swift = Swift_Mailer::newInstance($transport);
// set up the email message in swift
$message = new Swift_Message($subject);
// set the body of the email
$message->setBody($html, 'text/html');
$message->addPart($text, 'text/plain');
// send the message through jangosmtp
if ($recipients = $swift->send($message, $failures))
 // inform the user if sending succeeds
