Well, if I wanted a mailing list then I think I'd have to use Perl and CGI to write one. I'm guessing that if you can do it in Perl then you can probably do it in PHP too ... but I don't know much PHP! :D

Watch with mailing lists though, your host may look at it as spamming and terminate your account or give you a warning, I'd inform them so that they don't get the wrong idea.

what i did is this :
made a mysql db with a "maillist" table and some columns for the addresses then made a php sign up page so they enter their stuff and then you just make another script that you run and you type a certain msg in and subject and/or from address and it goes to all the addys in yer db
MAKE SURE someone from the public can't access your send script page as they will spam bigtime(ask me) and you WILL get in trouble from the ppl whose email addys it is :)
