Hi,

I got VPS with SSH/SFTP access only, unfortunately their basic plans doesn't offer any email server which will cover my needs. What do you recommend to install to be able using email server for free? I expect to use over 50 000 mails monthly.

Nobody's going to give you 50K/emails a month for free.  Mailchimp will give you 6K.

You can user gmail as your SMTP server for your site's normal emails.  But they'll shut you down if you try to shove 50K through them.

It's confusing, share hosting doesn't have any limits for email sending. What do you recommend to use?

Number 1, using shared hosting for an ecommerce site is a setup for failure.

Number 2, if you are doing email marketing, use an email marketing system.

They say they don't have limits but the moment you try to send out 50k emails, they'll block you when you reach 1% of that.

 

Get an email marketing system (see my tip about sendfox) or use a service like Mailgun, sendgrid, etc.
