Email / Newsletter

Hi,

Looking at sending Email / Newsletter to my 8500 forum users.

I think I need to use Newsletter - is there any way to get everyone signed up to the Newsletter or do they have to sign up one at a time?

Is this the easiest way of doing things?

Beware of the AOL email addresses! (you will probably be considered as a spammer by AOL if you're not on their "whitelist"

Re: Email / Newsletter

Just tried it and I get a load of returned emails - basically it misses off a > in the email address when sending so error message is:

<alandrec <alandrec_01@hotmail.com>:
65.54.244.104 does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 501 Invalid Address
Giving up on 65.54.244.104.

Trying to send to 8000 ppl and the screen timeouts.

Is there any free software anyone can recommend instead? Does anyone else manage to make it work for a large number of ppl?

Thx
