    I was wondering what service or software people use for sending out their newsletter? Currently I only have small mailing lists and I use mojomail (free version) for that.

    If you had a mailing list of minimum 5000 subscribers, what software or service would you use? How much is it? Any recommendations?

    If I remember correctly, I read that mojo should be able to handle it if you use SMTP.

    Read the manual (sorry for that) or go to their board.

    Thanks. I know mojo is supposed to be able to handle it, but then doesn't that mean I would be sending 5000+ e-mails through my ISP every time I sent one to my list.

    I want something that does not affect my ISP. I dont want them to ban me for suspected spamming or high bandwidth useage or similar.

    Any ideas? Or have I misunderstood the consequences of sending out 5000+ e-mails using mojo?

    I use this place for newsletters:

    http://www.yourmailinglistprovider.com/

    I don't have 5000+ signups so have no idea if they can handle it.. you'd have to check

    Brilliant, thanks. I dont have 5000+ subscribers either, but a newsletter is a top priority this year & I have learnt to set goals high .

    They imply on their homepage they can handle 1000s. No advertising? This looks too good to be true. Any problems with them?

    They state on their faq page that there is no limit on the number of subscribers that you can have. They mention that they have several members with 100,000 subscribers.

    They claim that they earn their revenue through banner ads displayed on a welcome page that your subscribers are sent to. Sounds good so far...I might just check them out.

    Hi Andy,

    I've never had any problems with them - near as I can tell all my newsletters have gone out as they are supposed to. There are also archives of old newsletters that they keep for you if you so choose -- and those end up in search engines too

    They do accept donations to help keep it free also -- well worth it if you find its useful to you.

    Thanks very much for the info. I notice that you can capture a name as well as e-mail address. Is it possible to include a name in the e-mail e.g. Dear Mary etc, or is it just for information purposes. Anyone know?

    Hmm I don't know about that Andy. There are a whole bunch of custom options you can do (template wise) so it may just be possible.

    Been looking around and found Zinester at:

    http://pubs.zinester.com/

    Anyone experience with them? Their prices and features look about the best I have found.

    Along this same line, I'd be interested in hearling what works best. Sending an email with a link to a html newsletter or sending an email that IS the newsletter.

    Anyone have any thoughts on that?

    Just signed up with yourmailinglistprovider.com

    This looks like the best free service I've ever seen!

    They allow you to create up to 10 extra fields to collect info such as name etc

    This info can not be 'merged' into the email to personalise it - but they have just informed me that this feature will be available in the near future.

    After studying the site, the only significant restrictions seem to be ...

    1 limit of 40kb email size

    2 Maximum send of 2 newsletters per day

    Neither of these restrictions present problems for me - and most other people I suspect.

    For a free service with no advertising (except for the banner people see when they subscribe) it seems hard to beat.

    Thanks for the info. Wonder when the near future will arrive?

    If they get that sorted I will go with them. If not, I think I will go with Zinester - they seem about the best I have found.

    When it does arrive, it will probably be an optional extra that you have to pay for - this is just my guess - they didn't say.

    Currently you are asked to pay a small charge if you want to go over the 40kb limit - or send more than 2 mailings per day - or have no banner on the registration page.

    Personally, I think it would be entirely reasonable for them to charge extra - they are already offering plenty of features and ad-free emails, I don't think any other free list service offers this much.

    I believe the free Zinester service is ad-supported, which would make it a less attractive option in my opinion - but if you are comparing the paid for services, there is probably not much between them - the one with the most reliable reputation would be the deciding factor.

    I don't use a third party service. I send to over 100,000 subscribers and have my own dedicated server for that. I use ACME Plus as the medium to deploy the emails.

    For what it's worth, yourmailinglistprovider have been around quite a while and I have a client with a huge mailing list that uses them with no problems.

    I was just reading some of the postings regarding newsletters and have a question. Email addresses are confidential to your customers and by posting them outside on a email provider is there not a danger that they will steal them? They do not do this for nothing.You can use Outpost to do this and keep these addresses secure.
    Correct?
