    Bulk email - help required

    Hello,

    I am starting a permission based bulk email marketing program. My issue is to send 12-15K emails for sponsors, how to do it, what software to use, how to work with ISPs etc.

    Suggestions are much needed. Also, i am on a very tight budget

    The best software for this is Lyris, SparkLIST, and a few others - I personally use a free basic script called Powerlist. Hopefully, others can give you their experiences with some of the commercial products.

    I have checked netatlantic's rates, my email list contains 30K addresses which means I have to pay $35 per month. As you people are using the service can you let me know:

    1. In this price, can i send daily emails?
    2. can i send html emails (including promotions from my clients)?

    thanks

    They have a price calculator on their site which you can use.

    I'm also now looking around for software to manage a mailing list... Looking, looking, looking...

    The Government sends out bulk email every day, doesn't mean it's spam.

    1. Yes, but if you go over a certain amount of bandwidth you may be charged a bit more. Check their bandwidth calculater.

    2. Yes, you can do anything that lyris can do.

    Where did you get your list of 30k email address? How can you have so many "optin" email address if you are on a tight budget and can't even afford the $35/month to send the emails? I don't think that we should help someone who plans to spam people..
