Installing Newsletter Module

I'm very new to SilverStripe and am stuggling with installing the newsletter module.

Could somebody kindly tell me where I'm going wrong and perhaps tell me how to go about properly installing this module.

I've downloaded the v0.1 .tar
Extracted file to "modules\newsletter\tags\..."
Copied the modules folder into the root folder of the SS installation
Run the /dev/build option
Tables have been created in the DB

However, when I go to paste the "Email::setAdminEmail(’<default from address>’);" and "Object::useCustomClass(”Member”, “<custom member classname>”);" lines into the /mysite/_config.php file - I get a blank screen when refreshing the site or the admin screen.

I'm assuming it's the /mysite/_config.php file you need to update.
I'm also assuming you copy the whole extracted tar folder "modules" to the root folder.

Installation instructions at are not really in-depth enough for me.

Any help, gladly appreciated.
