Newsletter management system?

Hi, our email based newsletter has almost 10,000 subscribers and we now want to use a professional newsletter management system. Any suggestions and experiences? What do you think of Subscribe Me Pro?

PHPlist is worth having a look. It has all the features a professional newsletter management system should have, but is not very fast (5.000 emails per hour on one server, with good scalability in web server cluster)

Are you looking for a hosted service, or to host it yourself? What have you been using thus far if you don't mind me asking?

We have been using our own server and a script to send the emails out, now we want to do that form a local machine.

I would try an e-mail marketing forum if you can find one. They'd probably be more knowledgeable.

So nobody here at WebmasterWorld has any suggestions? Quite strange.

I use a hosted Lyris service for sending out monthly flyers/newsletters. I think it's quite reasonable at well under $100 a month. There are big differences in functionality between systems. One of my main criteria is bounce management. If you are mailing more than a few thousand names, manually dealing with bounces is a time-consuming chore. Easy and fully automated subscription/unsubscription is important, too.

PhpList is an excellent suggestion, but you may find it limiting if you wish to start gathering and tracking more information about your subscribers/members. I went open source last year and now use CiviMail, which is a component of CiviCRM. It's not easy to get started with but has proved worth the effort.

Hosted solutions include services like GetActive, if you're in NPO-style activism, and other well known providers if you're not.
