I'm told the server is a 'mainframe' running iPlanet. I have little knowledge and very limited access. Would prefer a file or download related solution, but will pursue server-settings solutions if anyone knows anything about it.
Read something about results of the POST method not being cached. Is this true? Can you set up a download using a FORM submit button with METHOD=POST and avoid browser caching?
Soliciting any and all information. I can find nothing on this. Thank you.
Dcrobie, what exactly would be the effect of the timestamp and is this solution server specific?
Nafmo, where would I put this and what does the syntax look like?
Thanks very much for all the ideas.
Exactly. I'm a lazy programmer (as all good ones ought to be), and that's the easiest solution by far.
If the admin is remotely competent, have them make a /newsletter directory that is publicly accessible. If you are causing them less work than you save yourself, you shouldn't feel bad.
Using the naming convention that g1smd suggested would be great, both for yourself and users.
Also, if you have access to even a light scripting language, you should be able to have the newsletters page automatically update as soon as you upload the newsletter.
