In order to send Mass Emails from Sanity OS you must add an SMTP service such as SparkPost, Mailchimp SMTP (formally known as Mandrill) OR your own SMTP account. This allows you to manage your own sender reputation as opposed to a shared bulk email server.
Here are a list of options that Sanity OS currently supports for Mass Email:
Method 1: SMTP
