On the other hand, SES is $0.01 per 100 messages.  $5 on SES would give you 50,000 emails.

I think Leon has his answer, but if you can live with a strict limit of 1,000 emails per hour a tiny plan at A Small Orange might meet your needs. I have the slightly larger small plan which runs $5 per month and have no problem sending my ISP address emails outbound through them. This had the added benefit of avoiding the Gmail problem of not seeing your own posts to lists during the ~five years my ISP outsourced to Gmail. 

Anyone hosting a discusion list should keep in mind that a list with 100 (non
digest) members would exceed the limit with just 11 posts in one hour. The list I help with is split in half on two diffrent plans due to hitting this limit years ago. We were prepared to split it into three parts but that never proved necessary.
