    Anyone using PHPlist?

    Hey Everyone,
    I researched and researched for month's looking for a good mailing list app in PHP/MySQL and only came up with a few potentials. Then a friend of mine mentioned PHPlist http://tincan.co.uk/phplist . I checked out the demo and it looks like it will do more than I'll ever need but wanted to know if anyone has tried it out.

    I have about 8000 subscribers so server load is my biggest concern but it seems to do queued/delayed mailings. Anyone have an opinion on this app? Thanks in advance!

    Thanks,

    John

    I tried to use it... pausing on it for now because of the complexity. But plan to...

    The mailing list is pretty active and helpful. ( join it and see for yourself )

    It's a promising php tool...

    I own Sensation Designs, and we have 2 "levels" of mailing list managers...

    SonicMailer Plus and SonicMailer Pro.

    (SonicMailer Pro was actually just released on the 11th, and we're having an introductory offer until the 18th... up to $10 off!)

    I hope SonicMailer will be the solution for you!

    and does it manage bounces too ?

    PHPList does all three.

    Sonic looks interesting too.

    marcel: Many of our customers have lists with around 10, 000... I know of 2 with around 100, 000 and one with 300, 000. It has been designed to not time out in the browser.

    Feel free to contact me if you have any questions! I'd be more than happy to assist you in any way that I can.

    As for bounces, yes you have an option of "notifying you of bounces", in which case all bounced messages (and any other unusual errors) are sent to the specified e-mail address.

    Hi,
    Interesting looking product. However, does it automatically remove the bounces from the mailing list? This is a key feature I am looking for.

    Thanks,

    John

    SmellTheCoffee: As of right now, no it doesn't... however as I use SonicMailer Pro myself, I am quite aware of the need for this and it WILL be implemented soon!
