I just stepped into the position of "web-guy" for the local youth soccer association. They would like to set up an email list, or multiple lists, so that info can be sent to parents, coaches, refs, etc. There will be about 400 people that the messages will be going to.

My question to this august body is, "Does anybody have a recommendation on a free, or relatively cheap, email list program?" I've been looking and have several possible hits, and I was just wondering what other's use.

Thanks in advance.

Yahoo Groups (www.yahoo.com) are very nice. They would allow you to post files, schedules, and handle the e-mail for you. This is really a fast option if you're not a programmer. Look into it.

----------

By the way, whatever you do, DO NOT use your primary e-mail address for the newsletter/mailings! Your ISP could flag you as a spammer, and so could other lists. You could suddenly find yourself with an e-mail address that is blocked by lots of servers.

Create a new, FREE e-mail address that is used only for this account and group activity. Trust me, doing this could save you lots of problems down the road!
