    Hi everyone,

    I am thinking of making a move away from eGroups and setting up my own mailing list on my server. I just can't seem to get the motivation to actually do it. There are 2 reasons why I want to do this.

    1. I can't get rid of the eGroup ads
    2. It will make the subscription process quicker and easier for my visitors.

    Are there any other advantages you can think of in hosting your own list? How about disavantages? Is there a reason why I should stay with eGroups?

    Thanks,
    Bob Messinger

    The main thing holding me back from leaving Topica, my list providor, is they send me a lot of new subscribers (we're a featured newsletter or whatever). I'd rather stick with them until I run into any problems or conflicts. At the moment, I'd rather get the free promotion than run a list off my server.
