February 4th, 2021

Visitors of your website would be able to subscribe to your newsletters through the help of a mailing list script. There are some scripts that would require a visitor to first verify their email addresses by clicking on a link that will be sent to them. These are called “double opt-in” scripts, in which customers would need to click on the link sent to their Inbox before their names will be added to an internal list on your website’s database.

Purpose of Mailing List Script

Basically, the main purpose of a ML script is to help you in sending out newsletters through an online interface. Some scripts support newsletters on an HTML format, while some would only support those ASCII text newsletters. The admin interface of the script is where you could maintain, add, or delete any information about your list of subscribers. If any of your subscribers would wish to stop their subscription, all they have to do is to fill out a form on your website, and select an option to unsubscribe. There are also scripts that enable you to view newsletter archives which you have already sent out.
