MailPoet Newsletters – Wysija Newsletters integrates collecting and sending to email subscriptions (mail-list) with your website / blog – no need for any external mail-list service. You can see an example of this plugin at the Eco-Parenting Blog. The popular alternative is to use a mailchimp.com account with a mailchimp subscription plugin.
