Although I'm new to this list, I've been running small lists for almost 10
years. Recently I shifted to Comcast's broadband service from a local
dialup provider and... surprise, surprise, Comcast is very unhappy about
even 120+ mailings of 2K messages. I've added mail throttling and some
other tweaks to make the traffic fit Comcast's restrictions but no
joy. Traffic on the list in question (Baba-L, a sailboat-related list)
varies from nothing for a few weeks to 5-6 messages a day and message size
averages 2-3K. Currently the mail is sent via a perl script that I've
developed over the years but I think it's time to move to majordomo.
For a number of reasons, a web-based list is not an option so now I'm
looking for an ISP who will support mail. The current contender is
pair.com. Unfortunately, they don't support majordomo and, worse, their
main mail tool is still in beta and being offered for free although it's
clear the free ride will end at some point. When I ask for projected
rates, I get "we don't know".
So... I'm looking for a majordomo-friendly ISP that doesn't charge an arm
and a leg to use it. Suggestions?
