Today, I am continuing research on a mail provider integration. So far, I have evaluated MailChimp, Compaign Monitor, and Constant Contact. After more than 8 hours of comparing features, prices, options, custom field support, and existing Drupal module integration support; I have decided that Constant Contact may be the ultimate winner (despite lack of Drupal support). The existing Drupal module for constant contact does not work well and lacks key feature support. Additionally, it does not scale well, as it is not optimized well. Therefore, we would be forced to develop our own interface.

If that happens, we will be developing a custom Drupal module (unless it makes more sense to integrate a new plugin with the Email Marketing Framework project). Our thread with that project regarding Constant Contact can be found here: http://drupal.org/node/1075086

This will provide a much better way for us to communicate with ShrinkTheWeb members and will allow us to more easily handle unsubscribes, bounces, etc. IF we choose Constant Contact as an integration Partner, then we will make a separate, joint press release at that time.

We do not foresee any impact to the service as a result of this integration. More will be posted to this thread, once we decide to push forward. All comments and feedback are welcome on this topic.
