i use letterrip pro (macintosh only) and i currently run 80 or so lists, 10
of these for state or national cultural organisations. one crash in nearly
5 years. fast but probably only scalable to lists of up to 4 or 5,000 members.
takes me on average 3 minutes to set up a list and has all the above
features. but the product appears to have had little development the last 2
years so i suspect is one of those wonderful things that work but has
become superseded by silly proprietary systems that corporations use.
