Hi Charlie - thanks for the article - Mailpin themselves told me about it. Their service seems a nifty idea: my use of it would be as a database developer, rather than a programmer. My one complaint is that there seems to be no way for me to capture back the link Mailpin generates, at the time I email the message. (I'm happy to use my normal email account). Having to wait to find out the link for my web page spoils the workflow - I'd really like to pass the link to my recipient as soon as I have sent the message. Don't suppose you would know a way to do that? Thanks again.
