"No, I wouldn't like to bounce back and forth between mail and browser, but I would be very surprised if your readers were reading everything in either situation. If the full text is in the email, they're probably just scanning for what…"
"I agree with Megg. Short snippets/summaries that link to the full story.
I've struggled with the whole concept of a newsletter though. Do people really anticipate and read them anymore? Seems so old school. Unless people opt in and can choose…"
"What version of Gallery were you using? We've been using Gallery 3 for a while now and I quite like it. Uploading can be done via the web interface, even in batches, and is easy to use for most people. So not FTP needed. We customized the theme…"
"As Annette said, it depends on why you're doing it. What are the problems that need to be solved, and what are the outcomes that can be measured? I'm planning to switch to a CMS from not having one this coming year, and most of our issues…"

So way back in "the day" (eight or so years ago), our employee/student email inboxes were routinely deluged with 40+ individual email messages per day due to the "campus-wide" email lists being open for anyone here to send messages to.Enough people eventually decried the situation, so we came up with an email/website "publication" that was basically akin to a "daily digest email" of what were originally individual messages.This was highly successful and took a large part of the burden off of…See More
