I've been using Mailpress for 4 years on my club website. Just upgraded to WP 3.9.1 MP5.4 ... always working with my own newsletter theme.
Yes as some mentioned, the first step to customize and use Mailpress may appear difficult, but don't give up, this is a must have.

It surely is me, because I don't understand mail servers.
There is no documentation to help you.
Works like a charm. Highly recommended.
The author does not seem to support it.
Absolutely not user friendly.
The latest version of Mailpress does NOT include paragraphs in the HTML emails. I tested this with the twenty ten and twenty twelve templates and when the mail is sent it does not have paragraph breaks, making it all look like one big paragraph, even when viewing it in the browser. If you add the
<p></p> tags it just deletes them.
This has been mentioned before on the Google Group, with no practical resolution.
To resolve this issue, add
<BR /><BR /> to create a double line space.
Better than anything similar I've tried. Doesn't have any fancy drag and drop stuff but way more features than any competitor.
Use only if you're not afraid of editing some files on your own! Not easy to figure out since the wiki went down but well worth the trouble if you're willing to invest some time into it!
It feels like something is missing. when a user signs up for the newsletter on the [mailpress] page, they do not get any option to select categories etc. Would rate as a 5 if it all worked.
Has worked for me for a couple years on three websites over several versions of wordpress
