  • 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.

    There’s also http://www.zookoda.com/ – which is free.

    Just for grins, might drop a note to FeedBlitz.com and see if they have some ideas: http://www.feedblitz.com/

    Thanks so much to everyone for your suggestions.

    I’ll do a little research and let you know what I come up with.

    Best deal for you try integrating any third party open source newsletter script, so i wont hurt your wp-data base
