I use the free Mailchimp like Ryan Huggins - Thousand Oaks, CA  and am very happy with it. It has brought me business.

I detest email blasts.  Since most of the agents I know agree, I do not sent them.  My brokerage does two a week for new listings and weekend open houses.  I get hundreds every day and they are just clogging my email until I can get them deleted.

Years ago, but now I do almost all through Buffini's Referral Maker CRM; tracking is crucial and I can get bounce, open & unsubscribe data all in my CRM.

I have used Constant Contact effectively.  It definitely has its benefits.  If you plan on sending less than 2,000 emails per month, MailChimp could be a good free option.

I do not use any e-mail company such as Constant Contact or Mail Chimp.

ISP will shunt messages from those domains directly to the spam folder if they are delivered at all.

I use SEND BLASTER from expendable IP addresses. 

CAUTION: Take care your IP address does not get flagged and know your ISPs transmission block sizes.
