The simplest solution is to use Microsoft Word 2007 or later. Using the Mail Merge functionality you can send to a list of email addresses, and it will create one email for each address. This works great if you don't have a mail service that limits your email count per time frame.

otherwise there a few dozen remailers available from http://www.download.com
most of them will let you download demo so you can figure out which one suites your needs. 'Best' is based on what your personal preferences are.

These days, most any in-house solution is going to get you banned as being a spammer.  I'd look into a hosted solution like MailChimp or Constant Contact or the like.

I should say, that if you have your own email server like exchange, you can create a second smtp gateway that only works with email from a specified sender like mailinglist@foo.bar and set that gateway to only allow 1 email send every 5 seconds or so. This will generally keep you from getting tagged as a spammer.

Otherwise mcCracky is also correct you can use a 3rd party service as your remailer.
