I have a client we are moving over to dreamhost this week. He has been using goldmine and his host provider to send out monthly html emails to between 9,000 and 10,000 of his customers.
I have let him know that dreamhost doesn't allow this many emails to go out at once, which he is fine with. He is okay with using an external email marketing company. I have done some research, and found intellicontact, good price, etc. But I don't really know their reputation. Has any other DH user used an email marketing company that they can recommend? We need to at least have the ability to offer opt-in, opt-out features, plain text and html, get reporting knowledge of who opened the email, etc.
