SMTP Sending Limits

It’s important to know that once you’ve sent an email, it reaches its intended destination as quickly and securely as possible. To ensure that everyone on our shared hosting is using our email service fairly and in a way that it will not affect other users, we have the following SMTP sending limits:

  • 100 recipients per email.
  • 100 emails sent per mailbox per hour.
  • 500 emails sent per domain per hour.

If you’re sending large amounts of emails we’d recommend using a dedicated bulk email service like MailChimp. This allows you to manage and track your mailing campaigns in an easier and more efficient way.


MailChimp is a third-party company and we’d advise you to research them to ensure they’ll meet your needs. LCN has no affiliation with MailChimp but do use their services for our own marketing campaigns.

MailChimp’s Forever Free Plan gives you access to most MailChimp features, but limits your total subscribers, as well as your daily and weekly sends. Keep up to 2,000 subscribers across all lists in your account, and send up to 12,000 emails per month. In any 24-hour period, you can send up to 2,000 emails.

Build Your List and Design Email Campaigns

The Forever Free Plan comes with built-in, customizable signup forms, so you can start collecting subscribers right away. You’ll also have access to great-looking email templates and MailChimp’s drag-and-drop editor to help you design custom campaigns.

Manage Contacts, Test Campaigns, and View Reports

MailChimp’s Forever Free Plan gives you access to all their standard list management and campaign tracking tools. This includes list groups, campaign segmentation, A/B Testing, reports, subscriber profiles, and more.

More details on MailChimp can be found on their website:
