1. Why use API to send emails over SMTP and native mail?
SMTP is slow, everyone knows that. If you have several emails on a new order to send, with a slow SMTP, customer sees 500. It's not user friendly. Native Mail is fast, but many host providers block that for spamming reason.
API is fast, normally it takes less than a second to send an email. Plus they have beautiful dashboard for logs, and they offer FREE plans. More importantly, less spams.
