    I have a list of about 1000 subscribers who ave signed in into my ecommerce website. but these are not double opted and I only have their email address with out names or anything else.
    What is the best way to send bulk emails to all these 1000 people? Should I use my hosting email? use gmail? any good software that would do that?
    I just want something that will give me high delivery rate.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I can not use aweber because they require you to have the subscribers optin again using their forms.
    Does mailchimp allow me to import my email addresses and send them with out having people on the list to resubscribe?

    MailChimp will but they watch your list like a halk and track EVERYTHING. If you go over a certain threshold, you will be banned. I'd go with someone else other than MailChimp. Try CC or iContact.

    Emailing is getting very hard. If you get a paid ESP, treat them and your list good. They are gold.

    send it using a professional looking, self-hosted email address of course.

    first send a mail using PHP mail() function from your hosting to any gmail account, if mail arrives into the inbox it means that your hosting is a legit in Gmail eyes and then it is prefer to send all mails using PHP mail function but first check your hosting limitation of sending mails per day. But if mail arrives in spam then use any software recommends by above guys.

    The php mail function should be good enough for 1000 emails.

    Or if you have ms outlook or any smtp client, use your email account hosted in your hosting account. Create a new email and put the addresses in your BCC and send it.
