    The fact that they store outgoing emails is huge.

    Actually, screw my previous comment. I take it back. They require business verification, and you have to jump through all these hoops for them to allow you to use their service, then beg them "oh pretty please" let me use your service oh wise Rackspace gods. Sod that, no time for that.

    This is definitely my favourite of the lot. Very good service, as to be expected from Rackspace. But also pretty cheap, which isn't so much to be expected from them!

    SendGrid's event API webhooks are fantastic. Now I get notification of unsubscribe, bounce and spam complaint events in real time.

    These guys had the best delivery rate. Their receiving option also seems to be the most advanced.
