My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I am a newbie to this internet thingy.  I have an PHP Index page where there is a email signup form.  I also have an account with and have a List called, say SatTV which has one field called email.
Whenever users enter their email and hit the submit button, the code should take the email and post it to the email list at iContacts.  
Is there any sample PHP  code how to implement this.  Thank u.

    Really, you would have to talk to the people at  You would need permission to access their database programatically.  They of course let you update your lists and things, but you use their tools.  Updating the files with an outside web application would require special permissions.  If it didn't, it would be a huge security risk.

    For better or worse, computer programming requires precision.  Are you talking about this?

    ... Or is there an that we should be talking about instead?

    If it's, they probably have a programmable interface of some sort.  I know that ConstantContact has one.  It is an API with key authentication.  I think the information on this page will lead you in the right direction.
