CrazyEngineers V.4.2.1 - Ocenia Digitella

Published on Jul 28, 2021

  1. Migrated our mailing infrastructure from Digital Ocean to AWS. DO is a great service. However most of their IP addresses are added to UCEPROTECTL3 spam list. This meant most of our emails landed in user's spam folder instead of inbox; for no fault of ours.
  2. We now use a better email software to handle all our transactional mails and newsletters. We also have the capability to run Drip campaigns; which we think will be useful when we launch CrazyEngineers Memberships.
