We’ve had good luck using CiviCRM and its CiviMail component for bulk email - http://civicrm.org/civimail. Setup is not trivial, but, is certainly within the capabilities of a web professional. CiviCRM is specifically designed for non-profit organizations and has just garnered a recommendation from the Free Software Foundation: http://civicrm.org/blogs/lobo/free-software-foundation-fsf-recommends-civicrm.
A little more about CiviMail:
CiviMail is a robust mass-mailing component which allows you to engage your constituents with personalized email blasts and newsletters.
· Target mailings by including or excluding any number of CiviCRM group(s), or previous mailing recipients
· Personalize your messages using mail-merge tokens.
· Track when recipients open your message.
· Track click-throughs.
· Manage bounces and unsubscribe requests.
· ... and more
Hope this helps!
P.S. My firm has been using / professionally supporting CiviCRM on Drupal for a number of years.
This is all interesting to see. I've seen several of those
providers in different places, but only worked with constant contact and a
private hosted service.
I've played with a couple on my own server too. What open source solutions do you guys like that can be set up and managed on your own server?
Preferably php/mysql - but what else is out there?

Subject: Re: [webtechnologydesign] Constant Contact Replacement
We have been using campaign monitor which works very well for us. Unlike mailchimp, constant contact, etc... You don't pay any monthly recurring fees, but instead pay $5 per campaign + 1 cent for each subscriber. It is also a white label service so you can brand it and use your own domain.

I think you may want to look into mailchimp, or
aweber. I used constant contact in the past, but they are very
pricy. But you are going to have to have your whole mailing list
re-subscribe. Aweber really wants to verify everyone first.

Does anyone know of a software
package like Constant Contact that will mange email campaigns? I have
looked at PHPList, but I would like something that can handle multiple client
logins and allows you to post info from a website into the DB.
Also, what do people recommend for other hosted solutions that are less expensive than Constant Contact?
