    Hello! We're going to go LIVE with MailWiz soon for our large, established business.

    I want to make sure I understand what server requirements I will need for this exact level of email sending...

    1. We will send just 3 autoresponder campaigns to each new email address that subscribes into MailWizz.

    2. We get an average of 2,000 opt-ins every day.

    3. So, most days we will be sending 2,000 X 3 = 6,000 emails out of Mail Wiz before the leads are moved off to our backend email sending system. (We will use MailWiz only on the FRONT end - so SES can help cleanse the list as our delivery server)

    4. Currently MailWiz is installed on an Amazon Lightsail Cloud Server - resources:

    1 GB RAM, 1 vCPU, 40 GB SSD

    There are some other domains on this server, but they don't get much traffic at all - so these resources are all available to MailWiz.

    Given the above, is this enough if we use PNCTL to maximize sending speed, or should I upgrade my LightSail instance?

    Thank you!

    @twisted1919, no, the cheapest they have at 4 vCPUs is this option:

    $80
    16GB mem
    4 vCPUs
    320 GB SSD

    If that's what I need I'll get it...but keep in mind I can upgrade at any time if it's not enough...

    Would either of these be able to handle 6,000 emails a day for starters? Or do I need the $80 option right away?

    $20
    4 GB Memory
    1 vCPU
    60 GB SSD

    $40
    8 GB Memory
    2 vCPUs
    160 GB SSD

    this seems to be linode?

    go with:
    It should be okay for a longer period of time.
