Manage your Mailing List
Simple integration with your own web site
Inserting mailing list management functionalities in your web site becomes extremely easy by the subscription/unsubscription management functions and the ability to import data from a web source, letting SendBlaster take care of list updating and mailing the right messages to the right recipients. We also offer free CAN SPAM-law-compliant optin and double optin PHP scripts in our download section.
SendBlaster can automatically manage subscriptions (and unsubscriptions), build permission based email marketing campaigns (even if you don't have a website). Each list can be associated with an e-mail address: when an email message with “Subscribe” in the subject line is sent to this e-mail address the sender is added to the list. If the subject is “Unsubscribe” instead, the sender gets deleted (if he/she had previously subscribed). SendBlaster newsletter software downloads new email messages from the POP3 account, verifies the subject and updates the related distribution list.
Advanced data filter
You may sort the list with a simple drag and drop for every field or even for multiple fields.
Bounce-backs are automatically recognized, and originating addresses can be either disabled or deleted from the lists. See how SendBlaster manages bounce-backs
