Email Newsletter plugin has options to send HTML emails/newsletters to registered users, comment authors, subscribers and contact form users.

Automated Re-engagement Emails

ReadyGraph’s automated email system encourages visitors to return to your site. Users receive optimized emails such as a welcome email, re-engagement email, regular digest with new content from your blog, and social emails.

ReadyGraph’s newsfeed is an optional overlay on your site where your users can engage with others in your community and recommend your content or products to each other. It is like having a social network that engages users embedded on your site. Users can leave comments, ‘like’ comments left by other subscribers and ‘follow’ other subscribers. Subscribers will receive automated email updates based on these actions.
