If you sign up for service with a company like ReturnPath, they have a whole 
list of guidelines that you need to follow in order to be on their 
SenderScoreCertified list.  They also have partnerships with a number of 
large providers, so that anyone on the SenderScoreCertified list gets a big 
improvement in their "spam" score, and thus you are much more likely to be 
able to get through the spam filters to the recipients.

People can still complain about you, you continue to use the existing 
services that you already have, and there aren't any guarantees as to how 
many people you will be able to reach.  However, you will need to stay on 
your toes to keep your lists ultra-clean, otherwise you will have more 
problems than you know what to do with.

Any e-mail service provider that claims to give you guarantees of 
deliverability, etc... are just blowing smoke up your ... nether regions. 
That's a get-rich-quick scheme of the spammers.
