Vivian,

I would highly recommend that you pick up a copy of the “Agile Web
Development with Rails” book. This book contains all the information
you need for developing your newsletter application.

Focus on the section explaining ActionMailer.

Apart from that you will need to have a general understanding of
building RoR applications, which is the REST of what you need to
know. All this is explained in the book and shouldn’t be a difficult
application to write.
