Mailing list madness!

    I looked at different sites (hotscritps.com etc) and the amout of mailing list scripts is huge. For the last 4 days I have downloaded and installed over 20 mailing list. Yet not of them seems to be what I am looking for. Its madness!

    What I am looking for is simple.

    Sending the newsletter in HTML and people don't have HTML support on their email, they get a link back to my site where the newsletter is stored on mysite in my own template. For exampel http://www.holidaycars.com/newsletter/affiliate/nl/nieuwsbrief_AUGUSTUS_2005.html

    The subscribe form should be just a form for email. Nothing more.

    I have had the same issues with both mailing list scripts and photo gallery scripts. There are so many and they all are not exactly what you need.

    In both cases I resorted to writing my own and the result was exactly what I needed in both cases.

    The only way to get what you need is to either get lucky and find the exact script you need or to make it yourself!
