I recently have been tasked with maintaining our website (newbie alert!).
We are interested in creating a newsletter for our customers. A consultant friend of mine said that the easiest way to deal with this is to use a mailing list server. Our current host (http://www.hostirian.com) wants to charge $5 per 100 names per month (whether we send anything out or not) for this service. This seems a little extreme when compared to other hosts that I have researched. So, I am interested in switching hosts. Our current host uses a Win 2000 OS. Can I easily switch to a host that uses Unix, et al?
Is a mailing list server, in fact, the easiest way to handle a newsletter? I have seen a few standalone programs that deal with mailing lists, but they have been Unix-based. Are these programs something that would be hosted at our hosts site or here using our companies internal servers?
Since youre a "newbie", I'll mention this to you, because it took one of my firiends ages to figure this out cause he was used to Windows...
Unlike Windows, capitalization afftects a file's name. Example, The files foo.bar & Foo.bar are considered 2 different files.
