I'm about to start a regular email newsletter to clients.

How do I set-up the unsubscribe option at the bottom of the email?

Thanks.

If the number of clients is not huge, just tell them to send an email with unsubscribe in the title. Then do it manually.
What software are you using to send it out?

You most likely can't do it automagically. You will have to maintain the list yourself, and manually change it if someone requests to unsubscribe.

I assume you are using Outlook Express. Here's how to set up a list, but make sure you use the BCC field when you send messages, so that people don't see each other's addresses.

If it's you yourself who is running the list then just put a message in the email footer or signature saying "Contact me directly to be removed".

One option you could consider is Yahoo! Groups. It's easy to set up, and you don't need a Yahoo! ID to subscribe (you do to set it up).

If you want to do it 'for real' then get your own domain name and make sure your hosting provider has a mailing list manager program (such as MailMan). For example, The Kiwi Web Hosting Company kiwiwebhost.co.nz/index.htm does this.

If you are using outlook, not outlook express there are various rules that you can set up to handle emails with a certain subject. You can also write/record macros to do features that rules cannot do. And you can also write add ins (significant programming skills required however)
If it is outlook, I qouls suggest you do a search online as no doubt there will be people who have already solved this for you.
