E-mail marketing question(s)

Wondering if there are any JAWS users out there who can describe experiences
with e-mail marketing tools like Constant Contact, Mail Chimp, etc.

We've been using Constant Contact and recently had a JAWS user describe a
problem with access with one of my e-mails. The e-mail in question used a
very simple/plain template with no images except an "add on" widget at the
top of the screen that showed some social networking buttons. Usually there
are no images used in our e-mails. The JAWS user is using the latest version
and Win7.

I am also looking for general information/guidance on what system(s) work
better and how we can ensure our e-mail campaigns are accessible to all.
