Ideally, stats, subscribe, unsubscribe, and let the person in charge have the ability to be able to select the recipients for a particular letter based on a field or combination of two fields. i.e. send to all contacts that are "doctors" or send to all contacts that are "doctors" and are in the "HIV" prevention program- upload lists can be csv txt excel doesnt really matter-
GUI would be great for managing contacts because if the the contacts address changes i want the user to be able to login and change his address or phone etc...

What are the requirements/characteristics of the "newsletter app" you're looking for? Does it need to have stats/campaign tracking? Is a web interface required, or can the user simply format and send his e-mail message via e-mail to the server? Does it need to provide the ability for users to subscribe and unsubscribe themselves? How will the newsletter owner upload his list? What format will (should?) the list be in when he uploads it? How large will the lists be? If they are small enough, then most mail clients should be able to provide the basic functionality of sending a newsletter to a list. >I was playing with mailman , but that seems to be a list serve app. The proper term is "list server," so as not to confuse with "Listserv," which is a copyrighted product (developed by Eric Thomas and L-Soft). ________________________________________________________________________ Vince Sabio Don't blame me; I voted for Matthew. tastel...@mac.com Socialism: Government of the inept, by the inept, for the inept. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
