    I was just wondering how hard it would be to make a web page that you can submit email addresses to and it stores them into a database to where i can send out news emails to everyone who has signed up. Any insight would be nice and appreciated

    Thanks
    Erick

    You could make a form where they enter their email address, and it emails it to you

    You could use a free, ad supported mailing list service (easy)

    You could use a CGI where they enter their email and it saves to a text file

    So im assuming there is no real way to have emails directly stored into a database or list, or there is but its not an easy task. If what i assume is correct then thank you very much for your help!!! if not let me know

    Thank you much

    Having them automatically saved into a text file is a database.
    You dont need an multithousand dollar Oracle database to keep track of email addresses and send a message to them all.
