    I have been using mailchimp for legitimate online marketing, and need to find a new solution. Does anyone know of a service that can accomplish the following?

    1) Collect prospect opt-ins info without them having to sign in
    2) Email opt-ins without double opt-in
    3) Email imports without double opt-in
    4) Automatically add opt-ins to my email database so I don't have to constantly do it manually
    5) Allows one email to go out to multiple lists without sending the same email to the same user multiple times (because they are in more than one list)

    Depends on your bounce rates. If you're getting 5%+ bounce, a bunch of spam reports, and content that looks sketchy no service is going to sustainably take you. I've had good luck with Amazon SES, but I clean my email lists first with something called fresh address, which cleans out the spam reporters, honeypots, misspellings, inactives, etc. first so it looks like a legit list. All in all this costs me ~$300/mo for max 25k emails/mo.

    Works great for me, but you'll have to make enough to cover your costs. If your just selling ebooks or something to an untargeted list I doubt this would be profitable. But for legitimate B2B services it works great.
