I am looking for an equivalent script I have seen in several websites, where
people have lines similar to "join our mailing list" with a single form
field for their email address, are there any good recommended scripts
(ideally in php) that does this someone knows of?

At the most basic level, and form-to-email script will do this - just
capture the submitted addresses and manually enter them on your
mailing list. But that's only suitable for very basic and low-volume
applications. With any mailing list consisting of more than a handful
of addresses, the complicated part is list management - verifying
submitted addresses to ensure that no-one adds an address they don't
control and making sure that people can automatically unsubscribe as
easily as they joined.

So what you're looking for isn't the front-end script per se, but a
mailing list management system - which will include the front-end
scripts, but be significantly more than just a front-end. I've not
used any ready-made scripts for that (the only mailing lists that I've
used are custom-built, but Google returns plenty of results such as
those at these locations: / / /

Please give me one!

Thank you for the URLs, I actually liked one of the scripts and I am
going to give it a try.
