Before purchasing what I had, I had purchased another program, from a forum member, but I had some trouble with it on the HostGator server plus it didn't also include a WYSIWYG -- so I had to code each email that went out in HTML. (which I can do, but prefer to NOT do )
So I'm in the market for a new program.
-- It could be one I buy or it could be one on someone else's server.
-- Allows both HTML and plain text emails
-- has both broadcast and autoresponders
-- I can segment any way I want (i.e. I have lists for business owners, others for advisors, others for people who have attended a program, and some lists just for clients).
-- I can schedule broadcasts.
-- link tracking ability
-- open rate and to know who opens what.
If you suggestion one that I can own, on my own server, it has to have the capability of me telling it how many emails it can send per hour. Host gator only allows 500; so for my big list it needs to be able to stop after 500, then send out 500 more every hour.
I'm game for other features, too. But these are what I need at a minimum.
Looking forward to your ideas.
