I worked recently on an application where people could subscribe to a Newsletter, which was basically a NotesDocumentCollection transformed as a NotesNewsLetter.

Some problems I faced where:

- you can only specify 1 SubjectItemName. Multiple options/fields presented in a nice table would be much more nice.

- when creating the final document to be send I could not assign a header or a footer by standard, something that asked for a workaround.

- the doclink icons can not be modified

Probably you have your own suggestions to improve the NotesNewsletter

I have always been a fan of the Newsletter class, albeit a lesser used one, from how my developer colleagues construct code. Improvements here, imho, would be welcomed; it's a nice object.

Hej Bill, yes sometimes with some simple code you can provide something quickly that works great. But it certainly has it's limitations (read: it has not been modified for years?)

My suggestion: SubjectItemName rename or add a new method SubjectFormula, where to transmit @-formula for generate Subject. Here is the greatest limitation.
