When I return early next week I'll send you some more info on using
FAST Data.  I'm using it on my site for full membership management,
and with the new revisions coming it will have even more flexible
capabilities.  I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

With the next revision it will not only have mailing list capabilities
(it can do that now) it will allow you to create a complete mail merge
based on their individual member profiles.  You can store any member
info you want and use it anywhere anyway you want.  The main change
I'm making is adding a much more flexible list management system to
FAST Data to make organizing and editing lists very easy.  Whether for
use in a file management system, or multiple email lists.


As for Member management--I'm wondering if you had something specific
in mind that FAST Data can't do?  Pm, what were you thinking?
