Also I've been attempting to find out if phpbb is a reasonable tool to use for primarily sending out a newletter to 1500-2000 registrants. I was looking for info to initially "register" the email list without sending out a new registration email. Also we currently have their names along with their email. I havent seen including just name as an option.

Is there also a new registration/delete registration link to a web page capibility?

Wondering if I should start to look at other options? Any suggestions?

TIA

Short answer - no.

phpBB is a bulletin board, it is not designed as a mailing list, and from what you describe, that is what you should be looking at.

Try phpList instead of phpBB.
