1- Simple Mailing List Script With PHP/MySQL

Simple Mailing List is a simple-yet-powerful and free mailing list manager script that is built with PHP/MySQL.

It helps you to control a mailing list by adding/removing members (one-by-one or in bulk), seeing the active/passive ones and sending mailings.

Every message sent can have an “unsubscribe link” and, optionally, the administrator can be notified about such updates via e-mail.


E-mails to be sent can be both plain or HTML and they can be scheduled for a future date (works with cron jobs).

In order not to overload the e-mail server, the script has the ability to throttle/limit/queue messages.

Simple Mailing List keeps the archive of previous mailings and “how many users they were sent to”.

Also, it is possible to create HTML templates and send your e-mails using them.
