Need robust post emailer for 3500+ subscribers (9 posts)

    I need a very robust and efficient email system for a mailing list of 3500+ blog subscribers who were converted from an e-newsletter list. (I'm not sending spam, all were double opt in.)

    I've tried WordPress Email Notification Plugin v2.3.1 and it nearly kills the server when it's running. And it takes a few hours to send all of the emails.

    I've tried to install Subscribe2 and the install didn't work. So I thought I'd look for some suggestions before I invest the effort to make it work, only to find it lacking.

    How does anyone run a blog email platform with several thousand emails? What if I double or triple the count?

    All suggestions are welcome,

    Thanks,
    Chip

    Feedburner (Google it).

    They take your RSS feed, and email it to everyone. It's excellent, and could easily deal with 3000+ subscribers.

    mpgeorge,

    Thanks for the reply. But I don't think I can submit a list of 3000+ names to Feedburner for subscription. Can I?

    Any other ideas on an emailer for 3000+ readers?

    It's not an on-your-site option, but I've started using a service from netatlantic.com for a newsletter with 8000 subscribers. It's reasonably priced and has a lot of tracking features so that you know, for example, how many people opened a newsletter. They also claim to have very good relationships with major ISPs so that the newsletters don't get blocked as spam.
