is the program settled to send the newsletters only to the user's email? If I have a list of external emails (not forum's members) , is it possible to set it too, in order to allow my friends to receive the newsletter?

It only works with existing forum members.

For 50 bucks, what else does the program that IPB doesn't? Just a cron better planned....but? 50 dollars PLUS 10 per year? Come on.... The all features you listed, with a simple (the simplest) WYSIWYG program are ready done. I'm sorry, but it could be a value add, not a 50 dollars program.

Hi Esther,

This sounds really intriguing.

I would want to feature blogs, new topics, new members, new social groups, new events,

Featured blogs and Latest Topics are there.
I haven't done newest members, but I can add it.

As for Social Groups... the Newsletter is designed so that I can easily integrate with just about any 3rd party modification. I see no reason why it can't be extended to include the Social Groups. We can discuss development cost for this one offline.

I think it's a really well thought out and useful mod.

I'd personally be happy to pay $50 for it. Though to maximise sales and exposure, it would likely be more profitable to sell for $10.

I could be wrong of course. But I do feel you'd make a lot more sales and ultimately more profits at a lower price.

But other than that, it looks great and I'll likely be trying it in the near future.

Hi Esther,

Another question: how do you handle the web hosting services who throttle emails? Robert had to try to find a happy medium with that in his design and mass pm of the social groups.



Emails are distributed every 10 minutes in batches of 50. Additionally, the email headers are marked as "Precedence: bulk" (which indicates that this is a bulk mailing going out).

$20, I would buy it. However I would rather stick to mailchimp's auto integreation for free than pay >$20 for this solution, plus mailchimps not being sent from my server!

Would love to see more tho... the screenshots do not make the system very appealing? You say you can wrap the boards style, can you send me an example email of a newsletter with hot topics, blog posts, articles, ect. if I give you my email address?

Out of interest, does this support 3.2?

I'd like to be able to play around with a back-end demo of this, I'm intrigued about the automatic options, sounds right up my street. I don't want to spend $30 though to test it out. Can you either offer a demo, or provide lots more screenshots? Could you also send me a newsletter with all the options ticked so I can view what is sent out?
