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.
