I've been looking at Acajoom (which is being degraded in place of the paid JNews?) and sent some test mailings. Without even touching the extended features of AcyMailing I could tell it was a better solution. I actually knew immediately when I ran the component installer because these guys seem to be the only ones out there who have used it correctly. ;)
Once I click this "Submit Review" button here I'm going to go over to AcybaServices and download the enterprise edition!
