Email listing Good or bad???

  Madpad_001 18:38 12 Jun 2004

Is it a good idea to have an email list on a small web page? If so how do I go about setting one Up???

but if you intend to type email addresses into an HTML page - don't.

The resulting hyperlinks will be harvested by spambots, and the avalanche of spam that descends on the owners of the addresses will be awful.

Create the addresses as a graphic if you must publish them........I assume that the people concerned have agreed to their addresses being published - or have I misunderstood your intentions?

I ment a email news letter, that someone puts there own email address into. I hope that makes more sense this time.

is a simple form,which sends the results to a specified email address, or to a file on the server for you to retrieve at your leisure. It can be created in any decent web design package. Which program are you using?
