I really want to know how many emails can I send 1 day in my shared hosting or a VPS, i.e 100 emails, 1000 emails, 5000 emails, 10000 emails or unlimited emails? How can I calculate the amount of emails sending out per day on my hosting?

Shared Hosting servers generally have limitations on the number of emails you can send per hour. For example, our company allows 500 emails per hour per domain which means you can send out 12000 emails per day from the domain. All hosting providers have their own limitations. You should ask your hosting provider how many emails they allow to send from shared hosting.

In cPanel, you can set 500 emails/hour limit on domains under Tweak Settings. This is irrespective of the limit that you set in each plan. You can set a lower limit in individual plans, but not a higher limit than that is set server wide.

This is determined by your host and how they have the package set up. You really just need to ask your host.

On shared hosting I agree with you.
But if i use an unmanaged VPS from a web hosting provider, I can set how many emails to send a day by myself?

If you have a VPS or a dedicated server, it is up to you how much limit you want to set. The hosting company will never interfere with your settings. You only need to make sure there is no spamming from the VPS which is where the Hosting company will take action.

In short, the answer is going to vary from web host to web host. Generally speaking though, you will have more control when using VPS and Dedicated Boxes (assuming you are not spamming).

As a customer who has leased a dedicated box, you have complete control on the limits. You can set no limits for outgoing emails. However, just imagine you have hosted a website with a custom email script in the server. Now that script has some security loophole and is exploited by some spammer to send out spam emails. Imagine, he is sending out over a million spam emails from the server. What will happen in this case?

1. The cpu and memory resources will be hogged.
2. There will be a huge I/O.
3. There will be lots of emails in the queue waiting to be delivered which means the legitimate emails will have to wait.
4. Huge load on the server will result in the websites slowing down.
5. The IP will get blacklisted in RBLs.

Of above points, the IP blacklisting will happen even if there is a single spam email sent. However, putting a limit on the number of emails that can be sent, you are actually preventing lots of issues. I remember one of my customers had made a mistake and his email queue was filled up with 7.5 million emails. We had to reboot the box and upon reboot, we had to stop the email service till we deleted every single email from the spool. It was only after the emails were deleted, we could access the server and put limit on the number of outgoing emails. So, even if you have control on the dedicated server resources, the resource allocation should be done smartly.

Shared hosting plans usually have a limit, VPS or Dedicated, is different. However even on VPS, Spamming and reports of spamming are never a good thing.

Several replies have been deleted.

The OP asked how to determine how many emails he can send per day on his hosting. There is no need for other hosting providers to post how many they allow.
