I am looking for a mailing list component for Joomla. I wish to have a simple box on the front page of the website for vistors to enter their email address and a subit / subscribe button, is there anything of this nature for Joomla?
I have used both Letterman and Yanc. Both are good. Letterman is very simple if you just want to send out simple newsletters. Yanc is very complex and somewhat difficult to learn how to operate and and quit a few component, modules, and mambots to install. But if you want a powerful newsletter component, yanc is the one for you. I have yanc installed on my site if you want to cheeck it out. It is on the front page.
I tried YaNC, but with a list of over 1k users, the entire joomla site seemed to hang until the email went out. Have to say, didn't trouble shoot it too much and jumped back to PHP List outside of Joomla/Mambo. It takes a little bit of work to get user emails over from Joomla, but it's much more powerful than anything I've tried as mod/comp in Joomla.
Well, I downloaded and installed ANJEL before I received all of the other responses. It would seem that ANJEL is what I was looking for, but I am not 100% sure how to send a mail out to all those who have subscribed, all I need to do is to send out mail shots now and again about sites updates. Any tips?
YANC looks very good too, and also very appropriate.
AS for the PHP stuff, erhh, I think its a bit beyond me!
