MailChimp: avoiding the 2,000 email limit

I see there is a $10/month fee

I do see "499 subscribers remaining until your plan requires an upgrade."

I see the Pro version costs $200/month

I need this to be able to send out thousands of email, way more than 2,000. But I can not spend $200/month.

I was told there's a $20/month service for unlimited emails, but I can not find that.

Am I in a pickle?

Thanks

I would check with whomever told you there was a $20/month service.

If you need/want to send thousands of emails, then, yes, you will have to pay for the service.

If you didn't have to pay or pay much for the service, it would only encourage the spammers.

So, it's $200/month is the cheapest I can get?

You can switch to SendGrid.  They have a plan for 12,000 emails/month free.

Oh, I have used MailGun in the past. Don't they have unlimited emails and charge for other services? This sends the email from my server, which may be a huge savings for them.

I even have an active account with MailGun.

thanks. It's cheaper, depending on many factor, and could easily end up costing much more.

And you need to manage the mailing and sending from your own server.
