Hi Allison,

I don't know anything about the app that you are speaking about, but, if your intention is to build one concise list to send your ezine to this is what I would suggest:

1) Set up a double opt-in subscription form on your new (ra ra ra!) website ;-) Use a reputable list hosting service to generate the form and to host your list. Naturally, I recommend http://EZezine.com

2) EMAIL your various lists in small batches via your regular email (Eudora) announcing your new site and inviting them to OPT-IN to your ezine list and direct them to the form you set up in step 1 above.
This will build you a squeeky clean, can-spam compliant database.

Don't just add people from your address books to your ezine list. This is not a courteous thing to do, and can even be illegal, ack!!

3) As far as deleting duplicate addresses, put all of the addresses into excel or access before you begin and there is a function to delete duplicates, but I don't remember the steps. Check the help menu in excel or access for info.

4) As far as getting tagged as spam there are a few preventative measures:
a) Make sure you are using a clean list hosting service. You can check the status of your chosen service provider at http://dnsstuff.com (you will need to know the IP address of your host's outgoing mail server- then paste that into the
"spam database lookup" form at this website.)
b) Practice all "best bulk email" sending practices. See previous threads on this.
c) Paste your ezine content into a spam checker such as the one at http://ezinecheck.com for commmon triggers.

Hope this helps,
