I’m doing this for some of my clients.
I set up the account using either Mail Chimp or Constant Contact. I fill out the account details, import lists and do the other setup. That’s something I charge a flat rate to do based on the amount of time I know it takes for each service. I do charge more if they have multiple email spreadsheets, for example, or a very large list (which sometimes need to be broken apart for import).
For the first newsletter, I have a set fee to set it up, and that includes up to 3 rounds of changes to the layout.
After the first newsletter, I charge hourly for future newsletters, and that includes checking the delivery reports and dealing with bounces, etc.
