Description v2.7 - PHP Multiple Newsletters
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Triangle Solutions Ltd has developed an application which allows you to create
a newsletter(s) subscription service.

You will be able to create multiple newsletters through this one application,
thus offering your users a choice of information about your company/site.

Users will be able to Unregister from the newsletter(s) themselves - so there is
very little maintenance within the script. Through the intuitive Admin system you
will be able to upload emails, delete or modify users, and maintain and send your
newsletter(s).

Click tracking has been enabled for HTML emails. This will allow you to view
who is clicking on the campaigns you send out.

Known Issues
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
+	I am using a Win2k, IIS setup - so most of my development is governed
	by these parameters - i.e I use Internet Explorer Exclusively to test,
	so dont be surprised if things dont work correctly in NetScape. Instead
	of saying why I do this please send me the solutions and I will be happy
	to include it in the code so it does work.

Requirements
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

+	Requires PHP v4.2+ - For the security measures incorporated in this release.
+	Will run on Linux or Windows.
+	MySQL database.
