4 beelion emails

Sendgrid announced their volumes for Black Friday and Cyber Monday:

To provide a clearer understanding of our scalable systems, on Black Friday 2019 we processed 4.1 billion emails and this Cyber Monday we processed 4.2 billion emails (46% more than 2018) and processed up to 315 million emails/hour (burst rate) into inboxes all around the world! To give you a better understanding of this scale, you can get to the moon and back 4 times in fewer yards than the number of emails we sent on Black Friday.

That’s more than double the volume they sent in 2017.

I expect other large senders did similar volumes, which makes the total amount of email over the last week mind blowingly huuuugee.

How much mail did you send?

Sending email

I did a class at M3AAWG teaching the basic mechanics of sending an email, both really by hand using dig and netcat, and using SWAKS. No slides, but if you’re interested in the script I’ve posted a very rough copy of my working notes here.
