What is a jangolope?
To start, a jackalope is a mythical creature known as a jackrabbit with antelope horns. Over time the jackalope continued to change into what we, at JangoSMTP and JangoMail, call the jangolope.

Long, long, long ago a curious jackrabbit stumbled upon an old computer. He grew tired of receiving and sending plain, ineffective emails. The jackrabbit thought long and hard. He knew there had to be a way to incorporate tracking capabilities into transactional messages. As his idea grew, so did his antlers.

Through the wild countryside of North America, the jackalope soon became known as the jangolope because of his savvy computer skills. James is a direct descendant of the original jangolope. Half jackrabbit, half antelope, 100% email professional.
