Internal Email Newsletters
What are you using at your institution to manage internal email newsletters/announcements/campaigns? By that I mean mailings to faculty/staff and students, where the email addresses belong to your institution.
At my university, various departments are using packages like MailChimp to gain the advanced formatting and readership tracking features. However, these packages designed for external email marketing are quite problematic when applied internally. Specifically because they are not design to be enterprise multi-user solutions (for example they don't share lists or give shared access to lists); they don't integrate well with lists that come from your own internal databases (e.g., the HR system or the student/faculty information system) and almost all require "opt out" features which are not pertinent to internal mailings.
Does anyone have a commercial package you are using for this that you would recommend?
