Hi Paul, Have you taken a look at ACT! E-marketing in ACT! 2010? It uses Swiftpage's e-mail services, and is tightly integrated with ACT!. You can, in fact, open a console and send an e-mail or look at results, campaigns, and surveys. Results can also be written back to the contact history record. And the contact tabs contain a new tab called marketing results, where you can see results by contact or results by campaign.
Check it out!

Even though Constant Contact offers a plug-in to ACT,
it still lacks the features of the integrated ACT e-Marketing (Swiftpage) service.
My staff have used both systems and find the Constant Contact template editor to be much stronger that the one in Swiftpage. We have ACT! 2010 and I don't believe there have been upgrades to the editor in ACT! 2010 (besides the name change). The limit of 1 image per window and lack of expected features drives us crazy. The Headers never display correctly and we constantly have to massage the width of each window. Our e-marketing program is suffering because my staff simply hates the editor.
I chose ACT! / Swiftpage solution because of the solid reporting and integration of history but if I we can't somewhat easily create email blasts that meet our criteria what's the use?
