If you are in an industry that needs to send large amounts of email but cannot give up your contact lists to outside services the only recourse you have is to either write your own user-friendly software in-house and maintain it or find a software that you can purchase and install locally on your own systems.
When mass-email sending first began the only way to do it was to write or purchase software that you installed on your computer. As time went on the "Services" started like Constant Contact and MailChimp that took that burden of running a local software but there was a cost; You had to give up your contact lists with just a promise of privacy. Also, since the Services need to keep up their reputations they limit the content you sent which does not work in many instances...you are being monitored. The email look-and-feel may also be compromised by the fact you will have to conform to the Service's structure.
Today with privacy rules and laws it is imperative you keep your contact list safe. This is crucial for industries like Medical, Education, and Government. Also, if you send over one million emails a month the Services can become cost prohibitive.
If you find that you need to make the switch over to a locally installed software to have more control than there are few options and many of them are very expensive. Some charge from $20,000 to $50,000 per year. It may also be hard to find a software that does not have some type of connection with the company producing the software, ie: you host your own information but they send the mail for you.
