    Talking want to create a sql database driven newsletter

    so long title I know, sorry about that.
    I want to go ahead and create a database newsletter, which shouldn't be to hard. any thoughts though as to a particular script that it am going to want to use so I don't have to leave my browser open when sending my newsletter out to thousands. perhaps if it only had to be open for a few minutes or even seconds after I hit send that would be great.
    thoughts or tutorials on any part of this idea.

    Talking

    anyone have thoughts on if i want to allow my desiner to take his html and css and paste into a field, and than have that field be what is read and sent out? i can simply take the field in a php setting and of something like this.
    PHP Code:
    // newsletter
    if (isset($_POST['nl'])) { 
        
    $message .= "\nwhatGoesHere\n"
        
    $message .= $_POST['nl']; 
        
    $message .= "\n";
        

    and then chase it up with something like this
    PHP Code:
    $headers "From: {$_POST['myCompany']}\n";
    $headers .= "Reply-to: {$_POST['mycompany@consumer.com']}\n";

    mail("somesort of sql database""subject"$message); 
    anythoughts? am i on the right page? just wondering on how i put that html into place of the newsletter and allow php to read it to send it out?
    thankx guys.
