    Which mailing list software works with AOL?

    Hi,

    I need to send out 1000 personlized email messages twice a month, however AOL does not have this feature (only BCC method). It does not have SMTP or POP features.

    What are some good options?

    Please reply ASAP

    Thank you

    Hi Herman,

    You might want to try Aureate Group Mail. I use AOL, and it works fine over AOL. You must know though, that it doesn't actually use AOL to send the email, just the connection.

    Their page is http://www.infacta.com/gm.html. They have a free version that might work well for you. I used it before I had my own server and it was adequate for my needs.

    Just so you know, you can use POP email over AOL if you have an email client like Outlook. You simply sign on to AOL to establish a connection to the Internet and run Outlook right over AOL. Many AOL people don't know that you can use third-party software right over your AOL connection.

    Good luck,

    JJ

    You could always use a mailing CGI or PHP script also, you'll find plenty at www.hotscripts.com . I have run mailing lists with over 6,000 subscribers using various web scripts, everything worked out fine. Although you will want to ask your web host beforehand if this violates any of their Terms and Conditions.

    I've also heard good things about Eudora Pro, can anyone vouch for this?

    Hi,

    Very interested how you were able to work group mail with AOL or Outlook with AOL as I have tried what you suggested with no luck (check the email I sent you!)

    Regards
