    Newsletters How-To

    hello everyone,

    this is my first post to sitepoint forums. i was wondering how sitepoint.com sends out newsletters to all its members. now i believe there are a few types of newsletter programs.

    some of them run on windows and u have to schedule them to send out emails. i am looking for a solution to send out emails automatically. i also want it to come up with new editions by retrieving the latest updates from the database.

    could anyone point me to the right solution? thanks a lot!

    From what I believe, SP has there own newsletter program which Kevin Yank coded.

    As far as finding one for your own needs, what server side language are you using?

    Try visiting www.hotscripts.com for a list of Mailing Lists Managers.

    HMMM I was wondering, does he use the PHP mail() function to launch the emails?? i gotta do more research. cos i thought it would bring down the server if i did a loop of the mail function.
