I have almost 5500 users on my site. I'm want to send a weekly newsletter to all my users.
Do i have a droplet limit for sending emails to my users (sendmail) or i should use an external service like ex. sendgrid?

If you respect rules stated at the Terms of Service, heading 3. Rules of Conduct, Email Violations, you can send as many as you want:
