Hi,

I have created a pretty nice email using RED now I am facing, what I thought was going to a piece of cake, the task of sending them.
I own a copy of Atomic Mail Sender and was thinking about using it unfortunately this software is altering the HTML and on Android phone it is just unreadable; I tried SendBlaster without success it doesn't render the HTML; the template I used didn't work well with Mailchimp see here; Constant Contact and iContact are a bit pricey for my budget (about 2'000 mails).

Any other software I could use ?

I suggest staying with Mailchimp. I attached an updated version of the template you were using that works for us.

Let me know how it goes!

Hi Bob,

I'll keep that in mind but for this campaign I'll be using www.sendgrid.com, they have a free account for up to 12'000 messages per month with a 400 max per day which suits me fine.
From what I saw email are delivered just fine on Android, iPhone ( 3 !!!) and Blackberry.
I wrote some code which reads my database's table, load the email's body from the RED generated HTML and call the SendGrid's API to deliver the emails. So far, so good.

Did you try Vertical Response. I think you pay by the email there instead of a monthly charge. Do not know if it will work with he HTML RED puts out. Try the trial & see if it works. May fit your budget. Also like Mailchimp & Coffeecup recommends it.
