Do I still need aWeber with XF?

I'm wondering if it's still necessary to have aWeber in place when we have XF. Yes, XF may not send auto-responses (or does it?).

If any of you are using aWeber still, won't your clients have to verify subscription twice (or can the two be linked)?

I use the mail feature that's within xenforo, it's sufficient for my 1000 members at this point.
The email feature looks interesting but I would be considered that my Xenforo might get blacklisted for whatever reason, for sending out emails. Is it possible to use an outside SMTP server to send all member emails, replies, newsletters, followup etc?

No update. But, be careful with aweber/mailchimp/whatever on a bulletin board.
I used it on vbulletin and I got lots of subscribers very quickly but the return on the investment was always < 0 ! (read: I always lost money :D )
