Hi, I'm looking for a good email program and had aweber recommended to me. Is that a good option or does anyone have better solutions? As a relative newbie to design, is it easy to integrate?

Thank you in advance.

You have web mail included in you hosting account, look in your c-panel.

If you are sending alot of email you will want aweber. It helps manage your database.. auto add, opt outs etc, and you wont be flagged for spam nor will you have to LIMIT your emails per hour.

Its fairly simple to integrate with some html coding to MOST sites. If your business relies on its email then yes.. its a good source for mail.

Hi D'son, I use the web mail facility in C Panel fine and have all my accounts forwarded to Outlook. I am looking for managing email contacts as described by Karen Mac with opt outs, who's read them etc. Sounds like aweber is a decent product so here goes!!

Thank you for your help.

Hi Michael,

Before making a final decision have a looksee at George's offerings. (http://www.dbtechnosystems.com/logginexamples.php)

The difference between your cpanel email and aweber is worlds apart..

1st... your email wont be delivered to spam as all isps recognize it- you also wont be blacklisted
2nd, if you use mass email lists you dont have to time them or batch them in groups.. you can send all you want.. thats why you PAY for the account.
3. Your isp wont shut you down, nor will you shut down the server sending TOO many emails, nor will you be limited to a certain amount per hour.

So again.. if you want to send TONS of mail professionally a paid system like aweber is the way to go.

cpanel is fine for normal email routing and sending, but not for someone who has a huge list or sends TONS of marketing mail.

As far as integration goes.. what are you trying to integrate? If its a form .. you simply use their code in an html box.. if its your domain mail.. thats a different subject that they would best be able to assist you with or put in a support ticket at vodahost for the required info
