Over 12 years I have developed a list of 30,000 members who receive my weekly newsletter, that I send out using phplist. So far I have never had a single problem because they are double opt-in and I have never sold the list or misused it in any way.
This morning, however, my host company sent me a spam report with 30 or so addresses that triggered the warning. Would you be kind enough to tell me how does that work? Are these my members who marked the newsletter as Spam instead of unsubscribing? Or is the ISP(s) contacting my hosting company? My hosting company says that they have a no-spam policy and they will suspend my account if I spam.
A quick search shows that using a professional company may cost as much as thousands of dollars each month. Are there other alternatives to send out weekly emails to 30,000 addresses? My budget is about $200 a month.
