    I am a newbie at most things webmaster-ish. I've got HTML down, but that's about it.

    My problem is that I need a mailing list for my site. As I've just discovered, this can't be done with JavaScript. I've found some PHP scripts out there, but they are all too complex for me to use with my almost non-existent knowledge of PHP, and I can't afford to upgrade my account to include MySQL support, so those scripts are pretty useless to me.

    Anyway, I don't need anything that complex. All I'd like is to have a form field, and a button next to it. A visitor then types in their email address, clicks on a "submit" button, and the email address gets added to an external file, say, "list.txt" in the same directory as the page in question. I hear that this is quite easy to do with PHP, so if anyone can point me to a script that does this, I'd be really grateful. Alternatively, if nothing of the sort exists, and if anyone out there has some time to kill, could someone quickly write me a script like that? I hate asking for something like this, but I would seriously appreciate it. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Have you tried outsourcing it? See Yahoo groups, and http://yourmailinglistprovider.com . They work and do what you want. With YMLP, you just get a small text advert at the bottom. They're both free.

    There are other services too.
