DemocracyInAction's mass-mailing needs have made it a case study for scaling delivery for our own e-mail vendor, Message Systems. It's a bit inside baseball, but if you've ever wondered about the scope of DIA's e-mailing and what's involved in making that happen quickly after you hit the "send" button ...
[A]s opposed to 100,000 messages per hour [years ago], DIA can now send 1.5 million to 2 million e-mails an hour. ...
Delivery Manager software['s] real-time analytics allows DIA to immediately identify why a message doesn't reach its intended target.
DIA's deliverability rate now nears 99 percent, and blacklisting from ISPs is no longer an issue.

He's The One They Call Dr. GoodmailSubmitted Thu Feb 09 2006 10:30:00 GMT-0500 (EST)
As readers of this space (both of you) have probably heard, AOL unveiled a new spam-control policy a few days ago to stentorian reaction online. Briefly stated, AOL (and Yahoo, soon) plan to charge a fee per e-mail to deliver mail to its subscribers through a program called Goodmail.
The notion of e-mail postage stamps as a spam control option has been floating around for a while (since postage fees do such a great job of preventing snail-mail spam), but this looks like both less and more than meets the eye. Less part first: it won't cost you, the average user, to send an individual message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
