Good-Bye EasyletterThursday, April 27th, 2006 at 12:42 pm
I just deleted my old PHP script EasyLetter from the server. EasyLetter was meant as an easy way to offer a newsletter for your web site and send out emails. It got some good recognition after once being featured on ScreenSavers, but I chose to discontinue it for several reasons:
- It is not spam safe and can easily be abused
- If you want to offer newsletters, get professionals to deal with the sending and data protection – there is just too much to keep up with
- I don’t have the time to answer problems with people’s server configurations any longer
- RSS feeds are dead easy to offer and are voluntary, not enforced data
So please don’t bother asking me for support for EasyLetter, I will not be able to answer, sorry. I might make it open source if there is interest, but I am not at all proud of it and email spam is too annoying a subject not to leave it to professionals.
