Here is list of email marketing tools with an emphasis on email marketing for small business.
Mailchimp – Get suggestions for your subject line
When composing the perfect subject line, it never hurts to have a little help. Mailchimp has one of the best resources for quality subject lines built right into its campaign software. When composing a new email, enter your proposed subject line and click on the link to ‘research subject lines’. A pop-up will appear and tell you if you’re on the right track and even make suggestions for alternatives.

And if you’ve ever thought of creating your own campaign across multiple feeds or sites, Chimp Feedr is the tool to get that job done. Combine 10 or more RSS feeds to create one gigantic feed that you can then feed into your email service for your new campaign.
