Is it allowed to install some script, import emails and send 200 (how much exactly?) per day to my site members?

As long as you complied with relevant laws it would be allowed. I would recommend doing the actual email sending via a third party like MailChimp which will allow you to manage your list, handle un-subscribes and has a free plan that allows you to send up to 12,000 messages to up to 2,000 list members each month.

Ok, but how much digitialocean allows emails per day? Trying to figure out what is cheaper mailchimp or digitalocean.

  • The answer is Mailchimp. DO has no limits, yet if you are not complying with terms about spam you can loose your account, also your ip can be blacklisted, so Mailchimp is a better solution that reduce the risks of blacklisting and suspended accounts as they take care of spam policies for you.
