Does not matter what SMTP server you use because all your code needs to know is about the SMTP host, port, secure mode authentication and user credentials. And ofcourse your application should be able to connect to the SMTP host. If your application supports connecting to any SMTP, then no need to bother about what to use. You can very well use your own company's SMTP server or use public SMTP severs like Gmail, yahoo etc.

Emails are free , i don't think there is a cost to send an email, unless you talk about SmS but emails should be free. i dont know any company that cant afford to send an email , if there is then doing business is expansive for them they need to close their doors
