There is some discussion of GAZ pricing here but I have not tried any free newsletter add-ons from vBorg so cannot offer an opinion. If you mention what vBorg add-on to which you refer, maybe someone else who has tried both will come along and provide you with some feedback, but as you are concerned about price, my suggestion would be to stick with the free one. That way you won't feel like you overpaid for something that might not have all the features you want.

I haven't used other systems, other than I did hack VB to send HTML emails and that's what I've been manually sending for over a year now. I was able to modify GAZ (with Morgan's help) to do what I want it to do and it "should" save me some time EVERY month, so that easily pays for itself since my billable time is more than $250/hour.

Is it perfect? No, I'd change a few things, but for the most part it is working pretty well and my members seem to like it. $50 seems like a small price to pay for something that works, has good support, and saves me a bunch of time.

I wish someone would show me how to make add-on modules though, for example stats from my gallery, stats from my downloads, stats from my classifieds, etc. I'm sure it would only mean taking the routines that call data from vb and mapping them to call data from the tables for the gallery photos (such as showing a random photo) or classifieds (5 newest classifieds for example).

Hmmm, Morgan, want to be commissioned to do that for me?

If you hire someone, let me know so we can split the bill
I am especially interested in latest links from vba links and latest entries from vba Dynamics, I am not that interested in stats though. I am afraid Morgan does not have the time.
