Bulk sends with Gmail suspended Gmail email account

Hello - recently I received an email from Google that my gmail account is suspended because I've been sending too many emails through Zapier.
I have automated about 20,000 emails in the past couple of weeks and I've been sending them all through Gmail. Is there a better way to send emails so I can avoid being marked as spam? All 20,000 have accepted being sent emails by the way.
They are volunteers signing up for a program and this is their welcome email. How can I best send a high number of emails through Zapier?
I tried Mailchimp but I have to write the email in Zapier because I am integrating a custom generated Google drive link into the email.
My zap goes as follows:
Volunteer registers through my website
Zapier creates a Google drive folder in their name
Zapier sends them a welcome email along with embedding the new Google drive link into the body of the email.

Hi @areyouhappy,

Thanks for the question. Gmail implements sending limits on their accounts: and it sounds like you exceeded those limits for this workflow. 

Setting up an automation in Mailchimp or similar would be the best way to trigger a welcome series to that many subscribers, but I understand from your note that the Google Drive link you wish to embed is created in the Zap 🤔

I did some searching and found this article about creating personalized files in Mailchimp - do you think that may work for you?

You could then use the Add Subscriber to Tag action in your Zap, to add the subscriber to the automation you have created in Mailchimp. 

Hope this helps!

Hi @areyouhappy 

Try using a transactional email service such as Mailgun:
