    Newsletter and Mailing List that doesn't use MySQL


    I have a client who wants to run a newsletter and mailing list, but his web hosting service doesn't support MySQL. It is Apache / Linux, and supports PHP.
    He wants users to be able to subscribe/unsubscribe via the web, and for him to be able to manage the regular newsletter content without any particular technical skill.

    Does anyone know of a product (preferably free, or at least moderately priced) which might do the job?

    The only answer I can see at present is to tell him he should change his hosting service.

    There are tons of free mail listing scripts.

    I use Mojo (http://mojo.skazat.com/)

    your best bet is to probably have the mailing list managed by another service/company. Take a look at http://www.listchannel.com/

    yes but its a big job. my company has written several dozen of those applications. Its not a small job. and you want your to be tied into your backend solution - so it has to be custom.

    yada yada
