Well, thank you for "trying". The first two non-internal links from google for expeditedsimplicity.com were 1) showing close ties to an unapologetic spammer and 2) panning the quality of their service.

And you couldn't even be bothered to construct a working URL (so you obviously couldn't be bothered to even test the URL for the text you slapped together).

And read other parts of this thread. Just sending out batches of e-mail would mostly just make the IPs doing the sending get tagged as spammers and result in lots of the e-mails not being delivered.

I didn't respond at first because your level of effort here was clearly so low that I seriously doubted that your suggested service would be of any better quality than the rest of your "work". So I was hoping somebody might look into that service or have heard of it and save me the time.

Luckily, the service was so obviously bad that you've only managed to waste a small amount of my time investigating the mass e-mailing service that you couldn't be bothered to spend a small amount of your time investigating. Sounds like a great idea to submit all our members' e-mail addresses to a service closely associated with spammers.

Spending more time looking for such a service myself, the most promising I was able to find was http://constantcontact.com which notes "10,001-25,000 $150" and "25,000+ Call for pricing". I'll try to find more time later for looking further.

    Yes. I'm sure a mass email service can be used for good AND evil. Your pooh-poohing of doing it yourself on linux in phased batches means you leave a 3rd party as the only option, and whether or not you pay 50 or 200, it is a trust issue. Clearly, your plan all along was not to do it. You can attempt to blame me, but the lack of effort here is yours, starting with zero security and ending with facebook/xp limit message mails.
