Surprisingly one of my websites took off over the past couple of years and as a result its opt-in email list has grown to almost 200,000 subscribers. I've been sending updates to the list every couple of weeks using a freeware mailing solution, but never removed any bounces (only unsubscribes). Each mailing results in a huge traffic boost and about 0.1% unsubscribe requests so I assume that many emails are getting delivered. Due to paranoia about giving anyone else (including ESPs, which might get hacked by spammers) access to the list, I've used an on-server freeware solution to send out the mailings and manually removed the unsubscribes, all of which has been quite time consuming. I'm now looking for a more professional solution to the following challenges. 1) Clean the list. There must be lots of undeliverables by now, maybe as much as 30%. 2) Find a mailing solution for daily mailings to the list (4 to 6 million emails per month), with automated removal of bounces and unsubscribes. 3) The list currently only contains the email addresses. I'd like to determine the current location of as many subscribers as possible (at least state or ideally ZIP code) to increase the value of the list and to be able to do more targeted mailings in the future. This should obviously happen automatically: when they open an email their IP and location is determined and added to the list. 4) I don't have a US street address. Considering that the newsletter contains pro-USA political news and commentary, many subscribers would be outraged if they saw a foreign mailing address, so I don't want to include a mailing address at all (it's not legally required as CAN-SPAM only applies to commercial emails). Alternatively I'd be open to using the service provider's US address if they insist on including one in the mailings. So, in summary, here's what I want to do: * Thoroughly clean an opt-in list of 200,000 * Send daily mailings, total 4 to 6 million emails per month * Determine subscriber location and add it to the list database * Avoid including a mailing address (or have ESP provide theirs) Any comments and ideas are welcome. My budget is $X,XXX to get set up with the right solution. Thanks.
