    hosted newsletter system?

    I have a 1997 version of lyris running our newsletter system for sending out weekly newsletters to roughly 20,000 subscribers. It's worked well for years, but it's long since time to move to something newer and move it out of the building for various reasons.

    I gave lyris's new hosted solution a try for a few weeks. Unfortunately, I don't think it's working well. Response rates are down to about 25% of what they once were before the switch. There seem to be issues with the newsletters getting caught in spam filters.

    So, I'm wondering if any of you have had any good luck with any hosted solutions for sending out newsletters (btw, these newsletters are plain text).


    Thanks

    Constant Contact gets pretty good reviews here and on other forums I read.

    Along with Constant Contact, take a look at Aweber, Campaign Monitor and Mail Chimp if you're looking for a hosted solution.

    I would also recommend Campaign Monitor. I have found it to be straightforward to setup, intuitive and well-supported.

    Aside from constantcontact, Vertical Response is another solid tool.

    If you're looking for something a little more robust try Exact Target or BlueHornet which are used by both SMBs and Enterprise clients.
