[Pro] Newsletter Software/Services

I know this is sort of OT, but this forum seems to get more traffic than the OT one.

I’ve researching Newsletter apps, and I’ve narrowed it down to a few and was wondering peoples opinions.

For services: MailChimp:

And, Constant Contact:

And, for scripts:
PHP Jabbers Newsletter script:
http://www.phpjabbers.com/newsletter-script/

And, PHPList:
http://www.phplist.com/

We will be using it for our non-profit animal shelter (which we are hoping to start within six months or so).

Just wondering people’s opinions.

Thanks.

Bob

MailChimp has a free offer that should be more than large enough for
your use – it’s like 10,000 mail messages a month or something
outrageous like that.

Please don’t try to roll your own here, especially in the United
States. The CAN-SPAM Act has some particularly sharp teeth, and you
want to delegate the whole business of opt-in/unsubscribe/get the
thing delivered at all (past the spam filters) to people whose mission
in life it is to do those things.

It’s not a job for amateurs, and despite the fact that I have been
building Web applications since 1997 and have worn out a number of
propeller-beanies in that time, I consider myself a rank amateur when
it comes to delivering mail.
