    I have 50 subscribers pre launch, to my mailing list. I'm not looking into buying anything yet, because I'm not sure how it will go, but I don't want to use a free service. I was thinking of just doing it BCC, but I cant seem to figure out how. can someone help, please.

    I used to use CGI Factory's mailing list perl script because it was so easy. http://www.cgi-factory.com/

    Now I use a custom-coded ASP solution though...

    I recommend "PowerList" by http://www.solutionscripts.com and "MailMachine" by http://www.mikesworld.net

    MailMachine has some cool features, such as email confirmation (they have to click on a link in the email to confirm their subscription), and the ability to have your users simply click a link to remove themselves...as well as HTML capability! However, I did once try to send a message out to several hundred people with MailMachine, and it failed on me...so PowerList might be the way to go if your list gets a bit bigger...
