[PLUG] large email volume for comcast user

Hash: SHA1

A friend of mine runs a private email list so he sends an average of a couple of dozen emails a day to several hundred people.  He's switching to Comcast because his old ISP is going away.  Now he has discovered that Comcast caps his outbound email to 1000 per day.  After that, the SMTP server just stops responding.  They've told him that he can send more if he pays for a business account but he's not willing to go that route since the list is more of a personal hobby than anything else.

Are there commercial SMTP providers that he could use that would not cost very much?  I see things like but they appear to me to be more like Constant Contact than a straight-up SMTP-for-hire.  I found but they max out at 300 emails/day.
