How to send unlimited email to someone for free and without authentication or SSL

Friday, September 14th, 2012

We field questions daily from customers who need to configure some special software or piece of equipment to send them email, but can’t because their SMTP logins require authentication (e.g. a username and password), or their software/hardware cannot be configured to connect to specific SMTP ports, or maybe because their logins require SSL/TLS for transmission security but their device doesn’t support that (and isn’t sending anything sensitive anyway).

Of course, software can be updated; there are always newer or more expensive devices that have more robust email sending capabilities.  However, additional time and/or cost is rarely the ideal solution.

If you are planning on letting an employee go, you should make sure well ahead of time to check the following things:
