“We have always tried to make powerful features easy to use, opening up email marketing to a broader audience,” commented Ben Chestnut, MailChimp CEO and Co-Founder. “It’s gratifying to see so many people around the world have found MailChimp and are able to make the most of it.”

Currently the Forever Free program provides a full featured, free account for lists under 2,000 and allows for monthly sends of up to 12,000.
