Lewis Dexter Litanzios asked: > http://www.mailchimp.com/ - is it still the best? No and it never was. I think it doesn't support basic mailing list standards like List-Id and List-Help headers (IETF RFC 2919 and 2369 respectively) so its emails get spamtrapped quite commonly and irritate others. I think it does clean up its recipient lists on errors, though, which is more than some do. > Has anyone used an alternative I should check out? The hosted service market still seems to be a market for lemons with failure to provide basic features and hard-to-compare advertising. Look at self-hosting if you can. Am I being too harsh? Is there a good review which found a service which provides both the basic technical features which postmasters want and the flashier stuff which users think to ask for?
