Merge is a script for reading various text databases and inserting them
into AutoFollowUp's format.

Mailing List plugs into Auto FollowUp automatically, allowing you to
email all your users, regardless of the product they've subscribed to.

PopCheck checks a pop mail account for unsubscribe and subscribe
requests for your various lists and processes them automatically.

Installation Overview:
NOTE: If you are updating your script, simply replace the new script(s),
but DO NOT replace the variables.cgi or users.cgi files. Doing so will
erase your settings.

1. Setting some options at the beginning of the script files (*.pl)
2. Using FTP to upload the files
3. Setting permissions on the files

Here's How!

1. Using a text editor like textpad, or notepad, open the *.pl scripts
The only thing to do is to change the path to perl so that it's
configured for your server.
It's usually:

The script has the following configurations within it:
$name_of_list = "Whatever You Call Your List";
$url_of_site ="";
$name_of_site = "The name of your web site.";
$unsubscribe = 1; # 1 if you want to include an unsuscribe link, otherwise 0 (zero).

The 2 scripts have the following configurations within it:
$current_leads_path = "/data1/";
$removed_emails_path = "/data1/";
$temp_upload_path = "/data1/";
$display_confirmations = 1;
$url_to_this_script = "";
$timeout_prevention = 50;

The script has the following configurations within it:
$file_lock = 1;
$pop_address = ;';
$pop_login = 'your_pop_login';
$pop_password = 'your_pop_password';
$pop_server = '';
$show_results = 1; # set to 0 if you don't want browser results shown. Instead, a small blank gif is shown.

2. Use an FTP program like WS_FTP or CuteFTP (just some examples I'm aware of) and
upload the files to your server's cgi-bin, into the same place AFU is uploaded.

3. Set permissions (CHMOD) on the *.pl files so they are executable. (755).
The owner should be able read, write, and execute.
The group should be able to read, and execute.
Also, other should be able to read, and execute.

4. The script allows you to send to everyone on your list at once.
It has a separate opt-in and opt-out. You can include a checkbox for 'newsletter'
to allow your users to add themselves to it when they sign into the
autoresponders for various products. Alternatively you can include it as a
hidden field and automatically subscribe them. This hidden style is the default
meaning that people are added to the list without being aware they're added to
both lists simulaneously.

5. The script is similar to the script in that it can be called
using an image tag from any page on your site, like this:
<img src="/cgi-bin/" height=1 width=1>
Just make sure that you have $show_results = 0, and put it at the bottom of your
pages so they don't load any more slowly than they have to... OUTSIDE of a table.
If you would prefer to manually process these subscribe and unsubscribe requests
then just open the script from a browser once a day.
The format for subscription and unsuscribe requests is to place the command
in the subject line as follows:
subscribe nameoflist
unsubscribe nameoflist
You do NOT need a separate pop account for this to work, however you might
want to consider it. If you do use your regular account for pop requests,
be sure not to download emails with the word 'subscribe' in the subject
line, or to always leave a copy of downloaded emails on the server.
