comment How to set cache control headers
I've reread your question and replaced the tutorials with (hopefully) better ones regarding your problems; I'm sure there are significantly better ones available still, but these should be easy to find once you are more into the topic.

@jdog - I'm a bit surprised you accepted JonLim's answer as is; I know you asked for 'subjective', but please see my comments there for a caveat. Regarding a subjective answer, there are probably lots of users that have great success with SES as well - we happen to have no problems with similar mail patterns than you, albeit likely much less volume. Nevertheless I'm sure the listed providers would serve us perfectly fine as well - we just happen to run our infrastructure on AWS anyway, making SES an obvious candidate, and this scenario might be a serious threat for contenders of course ;)

And to add some constructive criticism: I think you would gain much more trust and interest in your service, if you could explain how your company is approaching the inherent problems with email delivery and why that might yield particularly good (or even better than competitor XYZ because of <enter argument>) results regarding the question at hand.

-1 - I appreciate your disclosure and am not in a position to compare the quality of the named providers, however, you do not back your claim of SES deliverability not being thorough (solid data/tests anyone?). Worse though, your are quoting from their FAQ out of context, insofar that statement addresses an entirely different topic, namely email being an unreliable communication transport by definition - I highly suggest updating your post accordingly (i.e. link to the FAQ and quote it completely at least), otherwise this looks like negative marketing.
