Create Email List and then send selective Emails (3 posts)

    I'm switching over from Joomla to WordPress so I'm fairly new here. I want my site to allow people to signup for a selective newsletter. When they sign up they would enter a category of interest and then when the news letter is sent, it would be based on the users selected category. There would also be a page where the user could sign in and change or add to their category.

    Also when you send the emails from a list created from WordPress, Is that a WP function or do you export the mailing list and just use Email programs?

    Is there a plugin or widget that provides this type of functionality?

    Thank you for any help you may offer.

    I'd recommend using a pro service like aweber, mailchimp, campaign monitor, etc. You'll get much better deliverability rates.

    Thanks Andrew, I am looking into mailchimp but I'm still unclear as to how I get the email address lists to mailchimp. Is the search done through mailchimp or within WordPress? In either case, case the email list be based on criteria in the users profile? Like one special letter for each state?
