  13. 13. Joomla! Day 20 August 2011 AcyMailing for Joomla Ross BartholomewIs AcyMailing for you?• If your mailing list is smaller than about 500 then it is ideal.• You can use with larger but then you run the risk of Server limitations in that you could be listed as a SPAMER!• If you have lists of substantially more than 1000 I would suggest using a dedicated option.• Very easy to use and adapt to a wide range of uses.• Easy to add, edit or delete users and lists.• If you are familiar with HTML and CSS then you can style very attractive mails, otherwise you will be limited to using the Templates supplied.
