Hi Andreas.

In my company we are using Direct-Mail together with  SR_Feuser-Register since 
a few
years and had really few issues with it.
We have been able to configure it properly so that the end user can
handle it without any knowledge of HTML or php programming.

The tools for monitoring mailing campaigns work well. There are also
tool for managing e-mail address that are no more reachable or return
any kind of error.

I have prepared some slides that show how we currently use it (sorry, only 
Italian version!):

Hope this helps.
