Hello, a company has made an email newsletter to send to my customers but now I want to make some changes. Do you know what program to use?. Do I need to hire a host service or can I send the email newsletters from my own computer with a program? Please tell me the steps to follow as I am completely lost and I don't know hot to finally send the email newsletter. Thank you in advance

You could just create a distribution list and add the receiptants to the BCC filed

First, if you want to make changes, you need to let us know what format the newsletter is in.

Once you've made your changes, just create a 'group', or 'list' as the person above stated.

Don't squat with your spurs on!

I suppose it is an html document as they told me I can change it with dremweaver or mozilla thunderbird. But they tell me that I need a hosting service ¿do I really need it or I can buy an smtp server software? This is a newsletter so that clients can subscribe to a new service and they pay it via paypal, do I need a hosting service so that the paypal button works or can I use a smtv server software?
Thank you

Hi, email newsletters can indeed be sent via your existing email system using the methods previously mentioned. If you do this, make sure that you don't reveal to the entire distribution other customers' email addresses and make sure that whomever you send an email newsletter to has explicitly consented (opted-in) to receive your company's communication.

Has your company established an opt-in/opt-out process and privacy policy yet? You'll want to have those in place prior to sending out email newsletters.

Many small to medium-sized companies use 3rd party solution providers for the sending of their email newsletters. There are many low-cost 3rd party emailing solutions out there that you can use to send email newsletters. These systems are typically hosted and provide you not only with a way to send out the newsletters, but also valuable analytics (opens, clicks, click-through rates, bounce-backs, bad addresses, and etc.), and an opt-out mechanism to stay in compliance with Anti-Spam laws.

If you are announcing a new service in your newsletter, you could describe the service in your newsletter then include the URL to a separate web landing page specifically set up for ecommerce where they can purchase the service on a secure, encrypted page where you can provide them the payment options.
