I'm looking for a good AR that is maybe not that well known and that is not as sensitive as AWeber when it comes to complaints. Can anyone help?

    You can always go with a self-hosted solution.

      I agree with this. It grants you so much more freedom.

        If you're getting enough spam complaints to make Aweber displeased with you, then switching to self-hosted also gives you the "freedom" to be puttting your own internet connection, hosting, and domain-registration in jeopardy, rather than Aweber's.

    I've seen good reviews of Trafficwave Email Marketing AutoResponders by TrafficWave.net and a couple of negative ones, but some people don't like apple pie. http://www.warriorforum.com/internet...periences.html

    Brian from there hasn't been around here much lately

    They have a 30 day free trial

    P.S.
    It's not good form to bump your thread so fast.

    "Sensitivity to complaints" is the other side of the coin to "delivery-rates". Those two things are necessarily and intrinsically connected. Autoresponder services less sensitive to complaints than Aweber aren't going to be able reliably to deliver your outgoing emails to your subscribers' in-boxes, are they? Their delivery-rates necessarily declined because they didn't kick out all the customers whose emails brought in spam complaints from ISP's/ESP's.

    Possibly a self-hosted autoresponder, rather than a service, is the solution you're looking for? Except that way, if recipients hit the spam button, you're the one running the risks over your hosting, domain-registration and internet connection. If that makes you feel uneasy, then you can perhaps appreciate why the reliable "companies like Aweber" are so sensitive to complaints? They wouldn't be able to be reliable, if they weren't so sensitive to complaints.

    I apologise if it sounds unhelpful, but the real answer to all these problems is not to send out any email about which the recipients will complain.

      I'd be willing to bet that if you send enough of them there will be complaints generated in response to the emails sent to confirm a signup.

    I don't need to be schooled on how to run my FULL TIME business thank you. I run 4 AR's at one time and send a broadcast or 2 from each one a day. I'm not spamming the hell out of my list and lets be fare Aweber is dropping the hammer on ALOT ALOT of peoples accounts. Who wants to deal with a company like that? NO ONE.

    I simply wanted to know of some good AR'S out there not to jump on the topic of complaints and aweber etc. Stick with the topic people.

      You could try ExpertSender, they might not be as budget as the above but if you have a bigger list you'll be able to make some cash.

      I do.

      (And so do thousands of other Warriors, obviously.)

      The stricter they are with people whose email-sending causes spam complaints, the more confident I feel about entrusting to them the safe-keeping and management of my own lists, which are - after all - my business's primary asset.

      When you ask "Who wants to deal with a company like that?", you make it sound almost as if you think they're doing it to be cantankerous and to cause you problems, rather than recognising the reality that they're actually doing it to protect the delivery-rates for all their other customers who don't get spam complaints (and thereby to protect their own business).

      Since you ask.
