The Geek Gazette has hit Release Candidate! That means it isnt far off to public release!

Go ahead and check it out at http://www.thevbgeek.com/newsletter.php

I have generated a couple of simple newsletters to check out, just note that the first few are generated at about the same time so the data is pretty much the same :D

lol. Damn near tempted just for your honesty and creativity :D

Zeuxx: It will deliver to all accounts, however tricking hotmail or a spam filter into thinking it isnt spam (when it for the most part is...) goes beyond what I can do! Ive been running it for a month in its various stages on a site with 13k members. Most are getting it without problems (and it isnt even done yet!) however I do not forsee it being 100% spam filter proof. :)

tehehehehe - I actually wanted to betatest - But free will be excellent :p
I'm really excited about this actually, as I was looking at commbull - but I like the forum "look" of the GAZ. Really excited about this one for sure.

Jacquii.

You're such a tease =0)

I seen this when I first stopped in... was all antsy ready to click the buy now (or whatever that button is called) and... ok I'm waiting patiently but excitingly (if that makes sense).

Congratulations for getting it this far - keep up the great work...

Always, Bree

Its this one: http://www.thevbgeek.com/images/element/misc/email.gif, however if your browser doesnt support popups, you wont see it until the next version.

I have reworked all the broswing navigation for next release for popup and non popup browsers.

HTHs!

I just updated GAZ to RC2 which ditches the icon in favor of the drop down menu

We'll take a look! It might take a bit, our testbed needs to be rolled back to a current image of our live system so we can testout the upgrade to vB 3.6.6 which just came out today ;), but once that's done we'll jump back into GAZ and give RC2 a spin.

We're working on a way to use it as an automated *very* quick (like single question) survey tool ala Netflixs... Looking very promising!

Sorry, had it in test mode. When in test mode, it doesnt actually mail out, it dumps it in a test folder for debugging purposes. Its working now.
