Hi, I've got a 17.000 email list that's pretty old, and I need to send a reactivation email in order to clean it. The reactivation email should contain an valid unsubscribe link, the text about what the newsletter will be (I'll provide the text, of course).
You'll have to take care of the whole project, that means database for the list should be hosted by you, cleaning the unsubs and the hard bounces for this database. What I need at the end, is a clean database whit less then 1% unsubs and hard bounces at the first use (maximum 2 weeks after you clean it).
Because of the fact that the list is pretty old (the list has been created from a discussion board that's still active, and all the subscribers have opted in) expect to have a lot of hard bounces (especially from the yahoo accounts) and a lot of unsubscribers.
