You now get more bandwidth, for free!

JangoMail users sending mass emails with large attachments or otherwise bulky HTML content now get a higher bandwidth allotment, for free. Historically, we've only allowed 20 KB per email message you send before you were hit with bandwidth overage fees. We have now bumped that to 100 KB per email message.

For example, if you're on our 12,000 emails/month plan:

Before - you could send up to 12,000 emails and 240 MB of data
Now - you can send up to 12,000 emails, and 1.2 GB of data

This change will lower many users' monthly bill and will allow more flexibility in HTML design options and file attachment options.

All new accounts get the higher bandwidth allotment upon account creation.

All existing accounts will see the higher bandwidth allotment on their next monthly renewal.
