Heidi, Legally, you have to have an opt out/unsubscribe at the bottom of all marketing emails, so if Wordpress offers that, it would be an option. Otherwise, I just finished doing a website for a non-profit, they use vertical response, who claim they do non profits for free, although then they say you get to send 10 K emails a month. The link from their last email: http://www.verticalresponse.com/landing/non-profits/?np/21ecb35ccd I have no idea how expensive it is for the rest of the emails.

The mailings would be 2-4 times a month. They can't spend a lot $ and I am overwhelmed with all the options out there. They are on a Linux server and I have the option to use phplist but am wondering how secure it would be and ease to setup and use. The client is on a shared server so would need to queue/batch mailings. Any input and/or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Heidi Faith < Heidi, I may be thinking way outside the box but instead of thinking about a mailing, why not use Wordpress as your content device for the communication medium and send a onetime mailing out to members with the URL? The URL mailed out would be to a login page to access the blog. Am I oversimplifying? Wordpress is free, only members would be emailed the URL.
