MailChimp is an aWeber alternative that I personally use for my non affiliate related email lists. You can import or build out your own email marketing lists and setup auto response sequences and solo emails.
OptinSkin is a tool created by the founder of the brilliant blog ViperChill. It allows anyone to easily create email opt in forms and integrates seeminglessly with all the top email service providers.
