      Aweber - is (supposed to be) the most compatible service for all sorts of platforms.
      However, in spite of having full integration of a large number of services, it can be, let's keep it family friendly, a challenge to get the integration going.

      As far as reliability, variety of templates, customizability (if this is a word) are concerned, first rate.

    I use aWeber and haven't had any trouble with intergration. They also have good CS.

    Mailchimp is free at first but I have heard people in the IM niche have run into problems with them, having accounts closed with no warning.

      Really? I never had any problem with them. Maybe they use the free account to send bulk emails and thats why they close the account.

      I had someone who did this and of course he get his account suspended.

        No he was using the paid version and had his whole account deleted before he could back it up anywhere else.

        He wasn't doing anything shady either.

        Think I'll stick with aWeber anyways:rolleyes:

    Hey,

    I use Mailchimp and iContact till now and I didn't face any problem. Probably you have stopped using it so it may ban, I have not been banned and even warned from three years. It is worth, do use it once.

    I've used a few autoresponder services but the fact is that if you are using anyone other than Aweber, sooner or later you are going to find a script or service that won't integrate with your service but they will integrate with Aweber.

    I've given up the struggle and all my new lists will be on Aweber!

    I have used Aweber, Imnica, TrafficWave and eventually I settled down with GetResponse.

    Aweber is very good, mature and with more stats than you are ever likely to use. GetResponse looks very similar and its still developing its features, it was just down to Aweber's constant nagging that I left.

    I should return to Aweber but I am not going to kill my list again.

    Can't stand Imnicamail - spam city, no control. Lots of angry people out there, making this more likely to be in the spam folder...

    I only use Aweber. Have for years and never have had any trouble at all. I recommend them to all of my clients who need an email service.

      For large lists, I use and recommend autoresponseplus.com on a dedicated server. Its features, flexibility, ease of use, 3rd party integration and cost outpace many commercial providers.

        Hi there myob. I've only ever used Imnica Mail and Aweber before. From what I can see, Autoresponseplus is hosted on your own site and has a one-time payment. This sounds amazing, but what are the drawbacks of having it on your own site? Are there bandwidth issues and spam complaint issues?

        A dedicated server on hostgator is at least $139 per month :s. Can I not simply use this on my Hostgator baby package? ($9.95 per month).

          That's not a good idea for a variety of reasons, the least of which may be deliverability and your provider's TOS. You can get a dedicated server from 1and1.com starting at around $60/mo. Check with them for requirements based on your list size.

    aweber seems to be the easiest to use and a greater percentage of subscribers tend to click on aweber links over other autoresponder links because of popularity

    I started with Aweber but have switched to GetResponse because Aweber is too strict with double opt-ins, and their interface has too much stuff that I don't use.
