    Chris, I haven’t used any of the ones you reference but do use http://www.mailchimp.com.

    You pay by the email address so if you send to a lot of people several times a month – this isn’t for you. But I send out a newsletter once a month to about 300 people. At a penny an address my money goes pretty far over the course of a year. The program is easy to use – so easy even a chimp can do it, yeah, I know, what does that say about me – but it’s easy, the reports are useful and you can send html and/or plain text.

    Hi Chris

    Have you ever heard of ClearFormat? http://www.clearformat.com

    Its more of an email branding tool than a newsletter tool, but you can embed certain messages in your emails, which may then link to the targeted pages etc. It operates like a managed service i.e. you pay per user per year, and the chance of your mail been rejected as spam is limited due to the email going through their datacentres, which show up as credible source. The online managed portal is great too as it shows how many emails you’ve sent, and enables you to track which recipients have clicked on your branded messages. It shows reports and a bandwidth calcultor…its awesome!

    You should check it out!
