Together with our customer we are planning to develop a tool similar to mailchimp, stampready etc.
But this tool should be a lot easier to handle and only given settings should be adjustable from their templates:
The tool must handle:
1. Users can choose E-Mail Templates to insert their own content.
2. Media filesystem for integrating & uploading images and datas. User based media librarys.
3. Loginsystem only for a specific google group-domain
4. Backend-System for admins to delete and upload maintemplates
5. GoogleMail bridge for sending out newsletters, the project itself do not need a mailing system, only a export button to create a new html mail from the created template in gmail.
Important: The tool should be easily expandable with other subtools in the future like integrating a link shortener etc.
