However, with a bit of $scripting_language and the subscribe log (or,
indeed, making the back-end of your form stash to a database), it
shouldn't be too difficult to work out who's joined the list when, and
then to send a mail to their email address directly. Script + messages
to mail + Cron, bingo.

Natch, that assumes (a) competence to script, (b) access to the logs,
(c) ability to run script, (d) space to store (or fetch) the mail
messages, (e) ability to create cronjobs.
