Campaign Monitor is very popular (and rightfully so imo):
http://www.campaignmonitor.com/

MailChimp?

Then what do you mean by “Email marketing”

Anything that is mass mailing can be done with campaign monitor or
mailchimp, you were asking for e-mail marketing services and neither
of those two are limited to newsletters. They basically provide
services where you want to send out lots of mails and have a way of
tracking them and getting stats.

If you just want to send out confirmation mails, what’s wrong with
using the local mailserver?

I might be wrong but if we send too many emails from our server aren’t
we getting black listed by gmail, hotmail, yahoo and so on?

You are indeed wrong.

I’d qualify this. I have a number of clients who send out a modest
number of confirmation emails and yet have managed to get blacklisted by
various ISPs over the years.

It is factually correct that sending too many emails is not the issue.
it’s more to do with the content of the email, the sending patterns, the
number of similar emails sent in a given time period to different users,
how many users mark the messages as spam (even if they aren’t).

Exactly.

That
said, I have found that there are definite deliverability issues with
sending out even things like order confirmation emails and I love to
offload the deliverability issues on business that specialize in
deliverability.

That may be desirable.

Best Wishes,
Peter
