Terry - We've been using Topica (www.topica.com) and depending upon how large your list is, they have a free basic plan and the next one up is $24.95/month. We've had some glitches with them, but once we figured out how to get around them, our ezines have been going out fairly smoothly. We've been looking at Constant Contact and see them as a viable alternative, but, like you, aren't wild about their fee.

I'm re-sending because for some reason, my post was stripped and sent empty:
Could someone explain what this means- AOL silent email absorption? I use an eNewsletter program that doesn't show stats on how many emails are opened, etc. But I know that I get complaints from friends/colleagues who say their email to my AOL address here bounces. (and yes, I have a different ISP for my business).
Also, while I have your ear, any suggestions on a low cost eNewsletter program? I've been using ezezine.com which is very user friendly but the program's not very stable in terms of maintaining formatting. Constant Contact looks good, but I don't want to spend $50/month. I'm looking for something that doesn't require knowledge of html and has a wyswyg editor thingie.
Thanks for any input/advice.
