I am looking at moving a club website to Dreamhost and I have two specific questions:
phpList: Our club’s current site has a mailing list with over 600 subscribers using phpList. This is purely for sending notices about meetings and events, typically one or two per month. In moving to DreamHost, I may eventually use DreamHost’s Announcement list for this purpose. But initially it would almost certainly be simplest to continue using phpList. My question: Is phpList compatible with Dreamhost? Are there limitations I should be ware of? I do realize that I would need to reduce the email rate to 100 messages per hour (we currently operate at 140), but that is not a problem.
Email: (This question is not related to phpList.) On the DreamHost web site, on the page describing shared hosting there is a list of “Shared hosing standard features.” This list does not mention email. Can someone confirm that the standard shared hosting plan does include email? Our need for email is minimal, but we do need to have several email addresses associated with the site, such as for the club president and treasurer.
