Aweber vs Campaign Monitor vs ?

I'm currently assessing options for handling an email newsletter.

I want to use a 3rd party service, but I'm really not sure which one to go for.

Campaign Monitor looks like it has all the options and features I need, however they bill based on the number of emails you send, so it could get quite expensive

Aweber, however, don't

Which one are you guys using and why?
Ok, this is an old post but I wanted to mention another provider.

I use Email Marketing Software, Autoresponder - GetResponse and they are $145 per year for up to 10,000 subscribers. Unlimited emails and campaigns can be set up and sent.

I have over that number and pay an extra $13 per month as my list is over 20k.

I've just sent an email to 10577 this morning and all in all it took about 4 mins to deploy.

I've looked at aweber and they are far too expensive for something I can get with getresponse at a fraction of the cost.
Aweber if you have large amounts of email to send

Campaign monitor for small individual newsletters.

Both have a strong feature set so just use the one that is the cheapest for your needs
i just want to mention a small detail about maichimp which can be hugely disappointin for many of us : mailchimp wont deliver emails to addresses starting with : info, or sales, or admin.... i dont remember how they called them exactly but they wont send them , campaign monitor don't have such a policy. but if your r sending plenty of emails (many hundreds) what they have is an approval system, they have to approve your campaign , they will ask for endless questions about how did you get the email addresses , the content of your email , and so on ......

gooooooooooooood luck
Icontact is pretty cheap, you can get a free 30 day trail and then can pay up to €10 per month for 500 subscribers. I've been using icontact for quite a while now and haven't had any problem with it.
I used campaign monitor last year, and they just started to get too expensive, as I have high volume lists. Now we use Mailchimp and they have all the features (and more of CM).
I must say that Aweber is the most reliable email marketing company if you are looking your message to be delivered in INBOX not in Junk box. But Getresponse is also a good service.

I have over 50 friends who are doing email marketing and 45 of them are using Aweber. You will be charge only $19 for keeping your list below 2500 subscribers.

Go for Aweber mate its the best.
