Free Mailing Lists, Email Newsletters & Ezines Hosting

Publish newsletters, ezines, mailing lists - no software or CGI needed

Free Mailing List Hosting and Email Newsletter Hosting

If you want to publish your own email newsletter, but don't want to mess around with mailing list software, configure your mail servers or write CGI scripts, the easiest way is to let a third party mailing list host manage the nitty-gritty of newsletter management for you. The mailing list host typically handles mundane things like newsletter subscription requests as well as requests to unsubscribe. You can also post your messages / newsletters / ezines through that mailing list host.

There are a few types of mailing lists. Announcement lists are mailing lists where only the owner of the list can post to all the subscribers. They are usually used for newsletters or announcements. Discussion lists allow interaction between all the subscribers. You might want to start a discussion list, if, for example, you are part of a team of software developers and need to discuss development issues with the other members of the team. Some discussion lists are moderated, which means that posts to the list are vetted by someone (such as you or some moderator that you appoint) before they are disseminated to the other members.

You can learn more about running your own email newsletters from some of the following related articles:

If you have your own website you can also install your own mailing list software. Free ones can be found on the Free PHP Mailing List Scripts and Free Perl Mailing List CGI Scripts pages.
