I Wrote a small script of a company to collect email addresses Via a enter email adress and we will send you serial Number for the Demo
Blah blah blah the only problem was they didn't have a demo or even a real product just away of collecting email address and selling them to people with a real product.
what i am trying to say is use a product that people can authenticate
Happytrails i've stickied you the one i have had experience with.
But... is there a way to import the addresses into BCC from an Excel spreadsheet?
yes. if you have windows nt / 2000 hosting you should be able to access an excel spreadsheet with ASP in much the same way as you would an Access database. it's easier to use an Access database than to use an Excel spreadsheet. use a web form to send the message to a simple script which can read these email addresses and send emails one by one or all in one go via BCC. i prefer one by one. 500 emails this way takes me about 2 seconds on my server using JMail or CDONTS.
you can improve on this by setting up your scripts so that if customers make an online purchase, their email addresses are automatically added to the spreadsheet / database. then any time you want to email your customers, use the web form again. no need to do any updates.
