Earlier this year, I installed Fast Sender for a customer and thus
far, they've been quite happy with it.  It's written in PHP.  It's a
double opt-in system, which is important for defending yourself
against spamming allegations.  It also allows you to include an
unsubscribe link in each e-mail.

I think it cost about $100, one time charge, no monthly fees.  You
also have to be concerned with how many e-mails your ISP will allow
you to send per hour.  Fast Sender can be adjusted to accomodate
whatever limit they set.

It was once regularly updated but the creator did a vanishing act a few
years back (or went to paid support). When we switched to running it on
the new server it needed a few tweaks to get it running on php5 and
there's a crap-bot that attacked it with random made-up e-mail addresses
and random spoofed ip addresses however this was cured by adding a
"wait"? command on the front end (If I remember correctly) and you could
always stick a captcha in front too.
Very versatile though and opt-in, link tracking, and a hole ton of other
stuff. It's old but works very well once the default vulnerabillities
are re-worked.
