Hey experts,

 We're a company that have a social gaming site, and we have a mail list of approx. 80K members that we usually send to our monthly ads and/or campaigns (and this list will be growing gradually with time).
We're currently using MailChimp as a service for bulk e-mail sending; but we're currently thinking that this is going to be expensive or time-consuming to continue using it for such sending. We thought that since we have a mail server (MailEnable) on one of our servers we might use it for this purpose OR to avoid spamming headache try to search for a cheaper service to use. Any advice regarding this?

Glad to be of service. Just make sure that you keep your emails as light as possible. Restrict yourself to lighter graphics. Do not increase the size of your emails beyond 10 - 20kb. This will keep your costs in check.
