Bulk Email


#1

Id like to be able to send a weekly newsletter informing customers of sales and new products.

Is there a way to do this at Dreamhost?

Thanks a lot.
I love it here.


#2

yes. mailing list. make sure you follow DH’s rules for bulk email though or you’ll quickly lose your account for spamming.


#3

Announcement List, specifically. Available under the “Mail” section of the panel, logically enough.

Thank you. Since I’m new to this, perhaps you could help me out a little more.
I have an HTML email template for my newsletter, how to I send that template and information to each person on my mailing list?
I really don’t want to send simple text messages.

BTW. I just transferred my account from GoDaddy.
I can actually pull up my site whenever I want and either see or work on it.
I could only do that 50% of the time at GoDaddy.
I’m dazzled!

You should read the information in DH’s wiki on the Announcement List;

http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Announcement_Mailing_List

Some of the instructions take a little time to digest, but they are quite clear and not at all hard once you get the hang of it.

Thank you. I’ll give it a read.
