Sue Anyone got any ideas on this one?

I have a list of over 4,000 that I market my ebooks to.

For the past 12 months I've used Mailloop with a 56K modem.  No problems!

Recently I've changed to ISDN and now find that Mailloop will not let me use the DNS function.

This means I have to use SMPT and it's extrememly slow!

I've tried emailing Mailloop but they don't reply.

Anyone any ideas what could be wrong?

Alternatively anyone have a good programme that they could recommend that doesn't need a degree in computer programming?

EBookCompiler Have you considered using a CGI script on your web host.  The big advantage of this is it does not matter what ISP you use to connect to the net. This disadvantage is that it may require some setup (although the vendor may help or do it for you) plus you need to import the list you already have.

Perhaps this link may help.

Sue Hello Sunil,

Thanks for that link it looks very useful.

Another problem I've got is that I use free hosting which doesn't allow uploading cgi scripts.

I suspect though that I'm fast reaching the stage where I will need to move to paid hosting.

dreuby I've used Worldcast fromhttp://www.fairlogic.comwhen I've wanted to sent to both my mailing lists, but not send duplicates to people who are on both lists.

It validates the email addressses, and removes duplicates, and sends mail. I'm on a dial-up, though - I haven't tried it with ISDN.

Sue Thanks for that Diane.

I'm trialing a copy of WorldCast, but I'm having the same problem.

I suspect it isn't actually anything to do with the programme but maybe the settings on my computer.

I am networked to a server and we had big problems a few weeks back which co-incided with the installing of the ISDN.

That is when my troubles seemed to begin!

bpc Hi Sue,
I found the exact same thing with Mailloop, it doesn't work with ISDN. You may want to look into Group Mail Pro. It's the best mail program/database tool I've found that runs off your desktop.

I used it when I had ISDN and I can still use it no problem with my DSL connection. You can download a free trial version that limits you to 50 messages sent at  a time, or you can upgrade to Pro which I use or Plus (I think it's called) which sends lightning fast.

With Group Mail Pro it usually takes about an hour to send 4000 mails depending on the size of your mail.

Here's the link to GM:

I hope this helps.

Have a great day!

No offence, bpc - I just think this place would go downhill if everyone posted affiliate URLs.

Sue Thanks for the info Terry.

Don't ask me why as I've no idea how it happened but Mailloop is now working with my ISDN.

Will take a look at your software though.
