Hi,


I'm still new to Alibaba Cloud and still don't understand the Direct Mail function.
What mail transport did you guys use? Postfix, sendmail, qmail, exim?
Can Direct Mail work similar to postfix/sendmail/qmail/exim/etc?
Or do you guys have other solution?

DirectMail has three interfaces: REST, SDK and SMTP. DirectMail is not an email server in that it does not support receiving email only sending email. DirectMail is a send transport.

You would use DirectMail to send emails, for example, from your website. You can also send batch emails using a template to a large number of addresses, for example as a mailing list send function. You can integrate DirectMail into products such as WordPress.

I have written a technical article on how to use DirectMail from a developers perspective.
