Bonza Mail includes a control panel where
you can send messages, add or delete addresses
from your mailing list, and change your mailing
list settings. View the
A password is required to log into the control
panel. You can change your password whenever you
wish. If you forget your password, Bonza Mail can
email a new one to you.
Bonza Mail can send plain text or
HTML formatted messages, or both at the same time.
If you send both at the same time, and your recipients
have HTML capable email programs, they will see the
HTML formatted message, otherwise they will see the
plain text message.
Plain text messages are the most
user-friendly. They can be read in any email program.
To send a text message, just type the message into
Bonza Mail, or create the message in another text editor
and then copy and paste it into Bonza Mail.
HTML messages have greater impact.
They can be made to resemble stationery or they can
include all the formatting of a web page, including
images. You can create your HTML
message in DreamWeaver or any other web page editor,
then copy and paste the source code into Bonza Mail.
Your HTML code can include links to images installed
on your website.
To send an HTML and text version
of your message at the same time, paste an HTML
formatted message into Bonza Mail, then let Bonza Mail
create the text version of the message for you. For
more precise formatting, you can type or paste the
text version of your message into Bonza Mail. The
message you are reading is a multi-part text/HTML email.
Before sending a message to your
entire mailing list, you can send a test to yourself
to verify formatting.
Send A Web Page
You can use Bonza Mail to send an
existing web page to your mailing list. Bonza Mail can
even reformat the image links so they will point to
the image sources on the original website.
You can specify the email address
that will appear in the "FROM" header of your messages.
Each recipient will see only their own email address
in the "TO" header of your messages. They will
NOT see the entire list of addresses on your mailing list.
Subscribing and Unsubscribing
Using the Bonza Mail control panel,
you can add or delete one or thousands of email
addresses to your mailing list very quickly. Bonza Mail
will sort through the list, removing any duplicate or
improperly formatted addresses.
From the Bonza Mail control panel you
can obtain the HTML code to insert into your web page
to create a simple subscribe/unsubscribe form. Visitors
to your website can then subscribe or unsubscribe to
your list at any time.
Subscription through the form on your
website will require authentication by the subscriber.
They will receive an email message with a link that they
must click to activate their subscription. This double
opt-in process prevents pranksters from adding bogus
addresses to your list. The double opt-in feature can
be turned off if you prefer. You can also require a
similar double opt-out when people unsubscribe to
Each message you send using Bonza
Mail can include an unsubscribe link so recipients
can easily remove themselves from your mailing list
if they wish.
You can set Bonza Mail to send you
an email each time someone subscribes or unsubscribes
to your list.
When you send a message to your
mailing list, you have the option of saving a copy
of the message in an archive on the web server. You
can edit or delete archived messages at any time.
You can make the archive available for others to
view by providing a link on your website or by email.
You can customize the Bonza Mail pages
viewed by your subscribers to match the appearance of
your website. You can also customize the default
messages Bonza Mail sends during the
subscription/unsubscription process. We will be happy to
make these customizations to Bonza Mail for you for a
small extra charge (see Extras).
