Does anyone know of, or have an evaluation of the various mailing services out there.  Some of the services seem useful but expensive.  Some don't even have a phone number to speak to a marketing or support rep! Gotta reach out by email if you need help. (Scary if you're having a critical deadline.)

I'm emailing about 5,000 messages a month (our database consists of 3,000 subscribers) for a government agency notifying constituents of policy changes and software upgrades. So I'm not selling any product where I need payment transactions.

Please provide links to any articles, blogs which evaluate these types of services or blogs/sites which discuss these types of services.  When I google, I get link farms and other oddities popping up in search results.

Best option is likely https://.mailgun.com which is...

1) Dirt simple to setup.

2) Provides 100% deliverability, to clean lists (non-spammer lists).

3) Allows you to send 10K free messages each month, so your cost will be $0/month.

MailGun == Email Crack.

After I started using MailGun for all my clients, I've been converting them off every other email system.
