I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What is the size of your mailing list?

If you're doing anything of value, you don't need to worry about the "free" part, because you will be able to make money from your work, and this will enable you to pay for the services you need.  If you're not making money from your work, then the "free" part matters.  In that case you might want to approach the popular mailing list companies (SurveyMonkey, MailChimp, ConstantContact, etc) and ask them to donate their services in exchange for a share of your future revenues.  If they see value in your enterprise they may want to become a part of it.  Best of luck!

I have a Facebook page of nearly 100K followers.     I am guessing I will have 1-5K subscribers on my mailing list.

Why not just post to your social media accounts?  They are mostly, if not completely, free.  Email is kind of 20th century.

Because the bulk of our members are old fashioned and prefer email.   Its something where we just want to have the option to do it, and would like to do a newsletter piece as well.
You will be hard pressed to find a reliable third-party hosted mailing list service that is totally free.

If you do not want to pay for the service, why not run your own mailling list service from your own Windows desktop computer?

BlowPipeEmail is a high-performance bulk mailing list server for targeted bulk email marketing campaigns and email lists that runs from your Windows desktop.
