  3. Support i want to change the email address of user to mine so that when he want to change the password i will receive the email of approval or reject how to do it. Where i need to change it.

  4. A smallish campaign with a homemade list would not be likely to yield much of a result. To achieve anything worthwhile, a much more aggressive effort is needed. Then, the age-old value analysis applies: projected earnings = margin on total projected sales - cost of campaign.
