Bad idea: Sending from the Cloud
MailChimp's Ben Chestnut talks about why it's a really bad idea to send emails from the cloud. He highlights Reddit's own public statements of frustration over being blacklisted by Trend Micro and struggling to get confirmation mails delivered. I couldn't agree more with Ben's take on things. The cloud is a neat place to compute, but for a multitude of reasons, it's not a great place from which to serve email.
