Is there a way to connect aweber or another emailing service with the forum registration or would I need to develop this myself? Are there any similar plugins or features made for other email services?
Are you referring to sending e-mails from your Discourse instance, receiving e-mails to your Discourse instance, or some sort of SSO integration with the user database maintained by your e-mail service?
not from discourse but rather collecting users to email them with aweber which is what I use currently for collecting subscribers and sending out newsletters. I’d like to have a checkbox where users are auto subscribed to the newsletter and for them to uncheck it if they just want to join the forum but not receive newsletters.
There’s nothing like that specifically built into Discourse, however people have mentioned it before. It’s straightforward to add a custom checkbox (admin, customize, user fields) inviting someone to sign up to your spa

Thanks, sounds like will need to get some custom programming to make it work for me.
