Creating Email Newsletters with patNewsletter (part 1)
Set up your very own email newsletter with patNewsletter.

| Know Your Application |

patNewsletter is a PHP-based application described, in the author's words, as "a powerful newsletter management tool with a subscription and administration interface". Developed by Stephan Schmidt, it is freely available for download and is packaged as a single PHP application that you can have up and running in no time at all.

Some of patNewsletter's more interesting features include quick installation and configuration, management of multiple newsletters from a single interface, personalization of the newsletter by its subscribers, and a readymade framework for users to manage their subscription. That's not all - you can also broadcast "announcements" to all subscribers without much fuss (a good way to send out breaking news) and use the built-in template support to customize the layout of the newsletter quickly.

patNewsletter can easily be integrated with your Web site, as it comes with a form to manage user subscriptions. After our initial experiences many years ago, I can tell you that this feature alone is worth the price of admission - it can substantially reduce the amount of time you spend managing your newsletter. You'll find it functional, powerful and (if you're the kind who likes fiddling) easy to customize, and it'll soon be the de facto solution to your email newsletter problems.
