Well having solved my initial problem on this group in about 5 minutes, here is my other one.
I have set up a subscribe form on my site at click here which is totally manual. I get an email for each subscribe and cut n paste the emails into an ascii file that I copy into bcc when I sent the newsletter.
Likewise I delete any unsubscribes manually from the list.
I have been looking without success for a simple (and freebie) opt in/out cgi script that will also maintain the file for me so I don't have to do all the work manually.
Has anyone found a simple one that works? I want to keep the space used to a minimum on the page. So basically a box for the email, a radio button for subscribe and unsubscribe, then a aubmit button. No more than that.
