Each email provider has a set of sending limits users should be aware of to avoid issues in a given workflow.
Google's email limit is 2000 per account per day. If your Gmail account is new or flagged, the limit is decreased to 500. For more information, refer to the Gmail sending limits in G Suite.
Microsoft Exchange Server (2010, 2013)
Limits are set by the organization's IT department as the server is hosted by the organization. Contact the network or system admin as applicable for additional information.
- Personal / Home (i.e. Outlook.com)
- 300 emails per day, 30 per minute, and up to 100 recipients per email. New or flagged accounts receive a much stricter limitation. For more information refer to the Limits for Outlook.com mailboxes and messages.
- Business / Enterprise
- 10,000 per day, 30 per minute, and 500 recipients per email. For more information refer to the Exchange Online Limits.
When a mailbox gets disabled and Outreach is unable to connect, a banner appears across the top of the Outreach Platform notifying users that the mailbox is no longer syncing with Outreach.
To continue using the mailbox connection, users need to reconnect the applicable email account with Outreach.
For more information regarding re-connecting an email account, refer to the How To Connect a Primary Email to Outreach.
When copying and pasting content from one source into Outreach, some of the formatting will also be copied. To ensure text is consistent, Outreach recommends removing the formatting or reformatting the content by using the text and formatting options within the email, template, or snippet.
Adding Images to an Email
Adding images to your emails can help catch the attention of your prospects and illustrate the message in your email.
To ensure your images are the correct size when received, they should be resized prior to inserting them in your email templates. There are several free and easy to use image resizing websites and your computer likely has basic image editing tools built-in.
Note: The body of a template has to be ~65KB or less. This means your GIF/image has to be small enough so that the images plus the body's text is under 65KB.
