Mass mailing with UE

Hello,
As we all know the economy has us working to maximize exposure and I have a number of clients that would like to start doing mass mailings.

The developers of UE have noted in the past that the product is not up to that challenge. I wonder if it would not be time to discuss why and how we can surmount these problems?

Of course there is Constant Contact. Great product. Loads of tools and widely accepted by the world and not blocked.

But many of us like to be self sufficient and run our own servers, giving us greater access to automation etc.

So my question is, what are the problems in using UE to do mass mailings? And how can we work around any such problems?

If necessary UE could be used for only part of the goal and then hand off to other technologies.

I'm thinking I would like to be able to run mass mailing campaigns in the middle of the night so there is less server impact.

Of course the whole project will be tied to a DB and have the proper opt outs.

Possibly there will be a need to limit the amount of email accounts mailed to at a time. Maybe there is merit in one email per event? Then it would be easy to do a traceback to the recipients custom opt out string without having to put in their email address?


Anyone else accomplish this task?
