TestZine --- The Archive

I publish an irregular journal. It is called TestZine. And I publish it as an Ezine.

This page is not about TestZine.

But it is about TestZine, the test Ezine I have.

TestZine Exists for two reasons:

  1. It lets me test the functions of the Gammadyne Mailer software I use to publish TestZine; and
  2. It lets others see how the various subscribe/unsubscribe functions work without actually subscribing to an Ezine that creates lots of Email.

TestZine is not Ever really published. If you subscribe, you will get the test issue. If you unsubscribe and resubscribe, you will get that test issue again.

This page provides the links to copies of the previous issues of this newsletter.

Prior Issues of TestZine

Nope ... There aren't any. This is only a test.

List Management Information

Best Practices of Email, Ezine and List ManagementBest Practices of Email, Ezine and List Management: The organization known as MAPS (Mail Abuse Prevention System) once published a list it called "Basic Mailing List Management Principles for Preventing Abuse". I used this list as the starting point to create my own "Best Practices" which I follow in managing my lists.

List Email HeadersList Email Headers: An explanation of the RFC standard headers which should be used on emails for lists and ezines. Also identifies the supplementary user-defined fields I use on my ezines, as well as RFC standard email addresses ezine publishers should implement.

Gammadyne MailerGammadyne Mailer: I use the Gammadyne Mailer for all my ezines. This page provides more information about that use, including summary information about the data I keep, the functions I've custom programmed and how to access my TestZine if you want to try it out. 

CAN-SPAM Is StupidCAN-SPAM Is Stupid: A personal rant about the U. S. federal law known as known as CAN-SPAM. While it is supposedly designed to help eliminate email spam, I think the law is stupid. The article also provides links to CAN-SPAM resources.


My Use of Gammadyne Mailer

I began using the Gammadyne Mailer to manage and broadcast my ezines in late 2002. It is possible to use it very simply, almost out of the box. But it also features a very complete internal programming language to let you do just about anything you want. And, it keeps all the information on my PC in an Access database, where I know the information is secure and under my control.

It is screaming software. I strongly recommend Gammadyne Mailer.

PS: You can test drive my implementation of the Gammadyne Mailer just to see how it works. I created an ezine named TestZine to let me test my programming. You can test it too. Subscribe and receive a "sample issue". You can even try out some of the tests I perform, like submitting a subscription request twice in a row, or subscribing when I'm already subscribed or unsubscribing when I'm not subscribed, just to see how it handles these "special conditions". Just go to my TestZine page.
