yeah you would store all of the users ina  database and then you would write the mail to send out and choose to send to all in the database.. you could have 2 seprate levels both weekly and monthl;y and send then out seprate news letters and loop thru all people in the database when you click send..

If your host supports cron jobs it will be the easiest way.

You make a script that sends whatever you want, and the cron runs it however you set it- Every minute, every day, every week, every hour, every month or whatever :)
