E-mail blast software

My company is about to perform its first e-mail blast to announce the rollout of our completely redesigned website. We are targeting all existing customers with an email address in our database. I am looking for an easy to use, low-cost software solution. Nothing fancy...we have a list of 4,000 email addresses sitting in an Excel spreadsheet and we just want to send a canned email to every address on that list without getting spam blocked. That's it.

Many of us recommend and use a bulk email service like Constant Contact http://www.constantcontact.com/index.jsp .  They have the email servers and expertise that you need.  Still, you should know that spam blocking is done on the receiving end and is their choice, not yours.  Even on good, requested, email list, 30% opening is very good.
check Gammadyne. This is for such purposes.

What would be the main competitors to Constant Contact? Just so I can compare and contrast.

Some others that my customers have used successfully are iContact http://www.icontact.com/ , MailChimp http://mailchimp.com/ , and Aweber http://www.aweber.com/ .  There are many others.  http://www.campaignmonitor.com/ has a lot of good info that I have used.
