Is CM appropriate for this use case?

I have a customer that wants to do the following:  they have a mailing list of approx. 10,000 paying members, and on any given day between 15-30 of them have a birthday.  They would like to send a "happy birthday, here's a coupon for X% off" email to customers on their birthday.

It seems like this would be easy to do from a technical standpoint, using the API and a custom field for birthday to select the recipients each day.  However, how would this map to CM's campaigns and the ability to track statistics.  Would each day's email to 15-30 recipients be a separate campaign for which they would pay?  Could they track the conversions and clicks and whatnot across all mailings (or by week, month, whatever?)

Thanks in advance for the advise.

Sorry for the very late reply.

Right now, they would all be separate campaigns and reporting, so not ideal for your needs, but autoresponders is something we are definitely looking at for this year and it would cover this kind of need quite well.

So thanks for your feedback.
