that's interesting! i use the mm_forum user registration.
unfortunately it seems to be impossible to use two separate user
sysfolders folders with it.

my current plan is to add another custom fe_user field
newsletter_language and then generate the recipient list with a query.
i hope it will work. i haven't tried yet.

thanks for your input!

i still have no answers for my other questions... :)

does the "special query" recipient list update automatically if new
users register or
do i have to create a new one each time?

does the "special query" recipient list automatically take the
"activate newsletter" field into account or do i have to specify it
myself in the query?

to which page do i have to direct the unsubscribe link?

cheers, horace
