I want to set up an email newsletter on my site. The things I was hoping for are:

Free
Ability to upload a html page and use that to send
Have an online version (although I could do that)
Sign up form easy to impliment in to my current site

It's only going to go out to about 200 people I would imagine.

Anyone have an recommendations?

I looked through hotscripts and there ones there but wondered if anyone had any sucess stories almost off the shelf?

Thanks in advance!

Generally "off-the-shelf scripts" never turn out to be exactly what you want, at least for me. Since this isn't too difficult to make, I would create my own. Here's a nice thread on Basics of Submitting and Emailing Forms with PHP [webmasterworld.com]. This tutorial uses mail [us3.php.net] however another good alternative is using PEAR::mail [pear.php.net].

Best of luck!

Hi I am also having trouble sending newsletters, I have a php script on the net that grabs all the email addresses from a db and uses pear mail to send through smtp

the addresses on the same server receive the mail but no one else (i received 4,300 bounced emails).

any help would be grateful

thanks
Pat

I had a similar problem. The bounces stated that the domain names for the email addresses were unroutable. It turned out that my host had set a maximum of 1000 emails per hosting account per hour. They kindly agreed to remove the limit.
