Services

Mail Chimp
Mail Chimp is the only one on this list I have directly used and I can vouch for them 100%. Reasonable prices, awesome user interface, and loaded with the features you’ll want.

Constant Contact

Campaign Monitor

Cake Mail
Cake Mail’s tagline is “White Label Email Marketing” meaning that with their service, you can sort of “brand” the backend of the software. You are able to create and send campaigns like all the other services, but you can also set up clients to be able to do it themselves and in essence become a reseller.
