    Combining Scripts to include Opt-in Email Program


    Hi to All!

    I am not exactly sure how to do this. I am looking to intall a script that will process multiple page forms (the forms pass on
    values) and at the end an autoresponder sends the user
    and admin an email - the user receives a thank you message
    and the admin receives the data that was entered by the user.
    All data is writen to a database.

    Here is the script that I want to use to accomplish this:

    http://www.mitridat.com/form-mail/

    But what I am confused about is how to combine the above
    script with an opt-in email management script where those
    receiving emails would be able to click on a link at the bottom
    of the email(s) to be instantly removed. I am not sure if
    I can get the opt in email script to work from the same database
    and delete users created by a different script.

    The ideal situation would be to find 1 script that does all of this
    but I haven't been able to find such a script yet. So the only
    other option I can think of is to modify the above script
    to accomodate an opt in email program. My question is
    would this be very difficult to accomplish? And would I need
    to maintain two databases?

    Just confused about how to set this up! Anyone that can help
    would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Lisa

    Hi!

    I think first of all you need access to your sendmail (,qmail, etc) configuration to make your mailer pass certain incoming emails to your program for database interaction.
