We need a professional email deliverability solution

We are a online marketing company working with permission marketing. We have several mailinglists and a total of 200,000 subscribers. This number grows rapidly, and our target is 500,000 within a year. We currently send about 6 million e-mails per month - this number will grow as well... We are using OEMPro and InterSpire E-mail marketer to manage our lists, but we are facing the same delivery problems as many other companies. Therefore we are looking for a complete solution, which will improve our delivery rate significantly.

Therefore I am doing some research to find the best solution for our needs.

Our main priorities are:

Guaranteed delivery to hotmail, yahoo and other free e-mail services.
To avoid our newsletters from being deleted by spam/content filters.
Superior bounce and member activity handling.
User friendly template based newsletter design interface.
Unlimited users/mailinglists/campaigns.
Unlimited custom fields.
Filtering and scheduling options.
Superior tracking facilities.

We are looking for a solution which can be installed on our own servers.

With this message, I am hoping to hear experiences from users of different solutions.

Staying whitelisted with your own servers is quite a challenge.

The major ISPs have their own whitelist policies for receiving bulk mail.

AOL: http://postmaster.aol.com/whitelist/
Gmail: http://www.google.com/mail/help/bulk_mail.html
Yahoo: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/postmaster/forms_index.html
MSN/Hotmail: http://postmaster.msn.com/

According to this article http://www.e-consultancy.com/forum/102841-an-e--mail-deliverability-story-msn-hotmail-and-bonded-sender.html  MSN doesn't have their own whitelist program.  They use a reputation service.

Reputation services are often used by large ISP's as a way to vet email senders regarding their email practices and policies. Businesses listed with these services are then given less stringent filtering or no filtering at all. Several reputation services are:

1)  You can keep both oempro & intershire, then simply use smtp.com for your delivery.

If you go to their (www.smtp.com) site will see phone number to call & they'll can give you a deal for 6 million emails per month, would they call dedicated server option (ie... above 100,000 emails per month). They're actually partners of both intersphire & oempro.

2)  We're also trying to choose between oempro & intersphire as well, that's how we came to talk with smtp.

Unfortunately in our case, not yet sure about the difference between the two because our post
