    I have google apps hosting our email. About twice a year I want to send a 15,000 recipient email.
    Google blocks this if there is a way arround it I don't know it.

    So I'm thinking of an smtp server of my own to send those batches. Can I do that?

    Most ISP's disallow servers in their TOS.

    It's business grade. There was an exchange smtp setup once. We migrated off it to g. Apps.

    We are happy with daily service it's just the bulk newsletter that is a problem.

    Is your Google Apps the standard free edition or the paid Business edition.

    THe only issue is most if not all of those emails generated from a locally hosted SMTP server would be rejected if the origination point of the email does not match reverse DNS and MX records and get flagged as SPAM.

    Like I said, unless your DNS records were pointed to your local SMTP for your domain MX record the recipient servers will reject it as SPAM.
