Default Market Manager Pro 3 Email Newsletter Question

Hi,

I had a few questions about the MMP3 newsletter and thought some people here might be able to help out...

1- Is there a way to get a "sign up for our newsletter box" on each page of the website?

2- Can there be multiple email lists? For instance, one for just offers, one for informational newsletters, etc? If I were to send an email to everyone, would there be a way to keep from sending emails to people multiple times?

Thanks,

Jeremy

Another question... does this software have anything to do with the SMTP server we have, or does it completely bypass it? We don't want to get hit with mailing limits.

We're also considering using Constant Contact... any thoughts?

Thanks,

Jeremy

Default

main thing to think about with any mailing list is what limits does your host have on sending of emails

if your on a shared server make sure you know

you can throttle the amount of mail that marketing manager sends by editing admin/mm_files/mm_mail.pl

Code:
# Pause, as not to hurt the server if ($i % 3 == 0) { sleep(1); }

the standard setup as above will sleep for 1 second after ever third email is sent

set a higher sleep time for a slower (less server load) mail out

On the right server marketing manager will handle mailing lists with 100 s of thousands of emails[/code]
