    sending out mass emails

    For the first time in a few years I sent out a mass email newsletter to all my members. all 250K+ of them. After about 40k had been sent, I started get the emails blocked by yahoo and hotmail etc. I talked to my host and they said sending any mass emails like that will always be seen as spam and that i need to use a service that specializes in that instead of sending from my host server.

    How do you guys handle sending out tens and hundreds of thousands of emails?

    At work we use MailChimp which works pretty well (although it may get a bit expensive for 250K+ mails, plus I'm not sure if they offer an SMTP only service). You could also check out http://www.smtp.com or http://www.email-unlimited.com/bulk-...tp-server.html
    I don't know anything about the quality of those last two though, so I can't vouch for them.
