SugarCRM will do this, and will provide a lot of other useful  
membership/donor management stuff into the bargain.

Is response tracking important? Personalisation?

However, with all solutions that do more than effectively send one

are a *much* better idea), you'll need to check that the PHP memory  
allocation is enough.
