  <li>You will need to be able to set up cron jobs in order to have your e-mails sent at the right time. Set up the <strong>/cron/generate-email-cron.php</strong> to run at times where you want to send out an issue. For intance, set it to run weekly if you want them sent out weekly. Set up <strong>/cron/send-email-cron.php</strong> to run every 5-30 minutes, every day. </li>
