Interesting Questions About Email Marketing

Ruth asks…

Techy stuff I need to know before I start an email marketing campaign ?

I need some advice related to the more techy part of email marketing. I hear things about aweber, VPS, interspire, MTA, Dedicated Servers, socks proxies, SMTP etc. But everything is so confusing.
Let’s say I have a BIG forum with thousands and thousands of members and I want to send them an e-mail every 2 weeks. I read all about spam acts, subscribers, unsubscribers, opt-ins, double-optins,
HTML email format but I can’t seem to make the connection between the marketing part and the tech part of this.

What do I need in terms of hardware, software, scripts and all that ?
If I have interspire do I need VPS ?
If I have interspire do I need socks proxies ?
If I want to send 10.000 emails to all the members in one day what kind of VPS do I need (RAM,HDD,internet connection) ?
If I want to send 200 emails/day what kind of VPS do I need ?
If I have VPS do I need a a aweber account ?
