Sending Email in Windows Azure

An Easy Way to Email

Steve Marx has a blog post and an example on how to send email in Windows Azure. Sending email directly from Windows Azure presents some challenges, because you don’t have a dedicated IP address, and it’s quite likely that spammers will use Windows Azure to send spam. Once that happens, spam blacklists will quickly flag the IP range of Windows Azure data centers as sources of spam. That means your legitimate email will stop getting through.

The best solution to these challenges is to not send email directly from Windows Azure. Instead, relay all email through a third-party SMTP service with strict anti-spam rules and dedicated IP addresses.
