Topic: online Newsletter function

I'm in the middle of the coding phase of a website and I'm stuck. I've searched high and low and can't find a good open source app for online Newsletters or just sending updates to a collected list of email addresses.

I need something simple. The "sign up for updates" form to accept email has been coded and ready to go but I need to add the functionality to it.

Can anyone help?

Awhile back I read about Mail Chimp, it sounds good but I haven't used it. It's not open source, but they do have a free version of their service if that meets your needs.

I use Mail Chimp with one of the church websites I manage. It's pretty nice. I also ran across this little scirpt at theme forest last week (though i've never used it): http://themeforest.net/item/newsletter-system/52667

Good luck! Let us know if you find something.

There's also campaign monitor (although not open source of free, like mail chimp it's really nice!).  That script looks promising as well.

You can also always use gmail groups for a mailing list. Hasn't got subscription management - but it works wink

Not quite what you're looking for, but: http://tgethr.com/ looks interesting for simple email groups (could be handy for a church prayer list/group updates?!)
