Thank you!! You got me going to check what exactly DH’s spam requirements are! I didn’t even think of that, since I had planned on finding a “safe” script to begin with. Didn’t occur to me that they had particular requirements too, it’s usually only the email recipient ISP’s I’ve had to worry about before.
While looking around, I discovered the 200/hr email limit if I don’t use DH’s scripts. Hmmmm, that could be a big problem. But they’ll waiver or change that limit if the script fits certain requirements.
But it turns out I didn’t need a new script anyway.
They don’t mention this anywhere I looked, I got this info through a support ticket, but you can give others limited access to use the DH announcement list by creating a sub-user through c-panel and giving them only “mailing list” access. It’s not perfect since it does seem to allow them to order a new domain if they poke around enough and deliberately want to cause trouble. Whether they can complete such an order or not, I don’t know, I didn’t try it. But it’s better than giving someone full access to my existing account to cause accidental trouble hitting the wrong button, etc. Those are who I’m more worried about.
But this doesn’t seem to give them access to mailing lists already created, only to lists created AFTER the sub-user is created. For instance I already had a discussion list built, but the sub-users can’t access it through their limited c-panel. Which is fine with me actually , I want a tighter rein on the discussion list anyway. But that might not be fine for everyone.
So I got the DH announcement list basics working under a sub-user, and I now just have to finish the webpages for it all.
Thank you again!!
