In the last few articles, we’ve installed DaDa Mail, and set up a basic mailing list. At this point, you are ready to send emails to your subscribers. In this article, we’ll walk through the basic process of sending out an email to your mailing list.

To begin, go to your login screen wherever you installed DaDa Mail. In our tutorial we installed it in the main cgi-bin on the doc root of InMotionTesting.com, so our URL is:
