Mail Sending Limits - What are large sites doing?

So most webhosts limit the amount of emails one can send from a hosting package.

So what are Xenforo owners with really large forums doing for email?

So lets say you have 300 outgoing emails notifications for the hour and the host kills them at 100.

I know Xenforo has the built in notification but on really large forums when a ton of members subscribe to email notifications you are bound to go over the send limits. Then you have the members that quit the forum and instead of unsubscribing they mark you as spam and eventually the IP get flagged.

I am looking for advice from members with larger forums to see how they handle this mail issue with send limits.

I own a couple od smaller forums and am already running into this issue.

The only thing that held me up was that they wanted this long, involved description of what we would be using SES for. I had a brief description and they rejected it.
I've had them reject it, send a list of exact points they want addressed which were all addressed in the original message that I've replied to copying the original request message and then had it approved. I'm fairly certain they don't read the original message regardless of what you put lol

I wouldn't be surprised if we both received the same "form letter" as a response. 😁 This is what I received when I switched from sandbox to production mode:

For a dedicated IP, do you allow your own different websites and personal mail to share it? Or do you truly dedicate an IP to one website? Or use an IP for all your XF sites, but not personal? Just curious. Dedicated IP can mean Controlled Shared in essence. Thanks.
