    A cheap self-hosted alternative using Amazon SES is sendy.co. The deliverability might not be that great though.

    For handling the multiple accounts plus the deliver-ability. Check these PowerMTA integrated ESP'z ( Thunderbird, Mac Mail, Interspire, Mumara )

    The answer doesn't help at all but anyway.

    I am asking because some niches are not friendly for email due to their nature.

    You will find the best deliverability with sengrid. Just make sure that your niche is ok with them,ask them or check their TOS

    I've been using Amazon SES to send, have used it with sendy and also my ecommerce CMS and it is great. I haven't noticed any issues with deliverability but I have noticed the hilariously low invoices from them. Always makes me chuckle getting a bill for a few dollars for how reliable it is.

    It may take a little setting up but you can even setup a custom domain with them and use it as a basic SMTP server so you can use almost any email marketing software or self hosted solution. It really is pretty great imo.
