BIG QUESTION!!! Is there any way... either internally within yola or an external program which you can have an automatic mailing list... preferable features would include a subscribe AND unsubscribe option as well as an automatic mailer... I've never done something like this before... but I have subscribed myself to these type of mailing lists... I'd like to include one in my website.

Hi Donald-

You might want to try Constant Contact (< click the link) out.

It's free for a trial period, and if you like it, there is a small fee per month based on the size of your list. You can also keep collecting emails after the trial without paying, then just pay once you decide you want to send an email out (I think!).

They'll give you code for a sign up box and it's a pretty user-friendly tool.

Let us know how that works for you!

Hi Donald,

Don't quite know if this is what you had in mind. You can integrate newsletter registration forms into Yola with http://www.aweber.com/ and the HTML widget (add the widget to your page and paste the aweber embed code into it).

This service does cost a fee, if you would like to use a free service, you can try mailchimp http://www.mailchimp.com/ or http://www.autoresponders4all.com/

In addition to the options Ruth suggested, here are a couple more that may fit your needs:

http://www.aardvarkmailinglist.net/

http://www.jotform.com - this does not come with an autoresponder but it'll collect the email information for you.

Here's another thread that may relate as well:
