Gather subscribers, manage them in separate newsletters, send follow-up emails, send broadcasts, send blog post deliveries all in one plugin.
I've been using this plugin for almost 2 years, with just one repeated send problem, which was fixed the following day by an update.
I've set up the plugin to send an autoresponder upon subscription, and I send periodic newsletters to my subscribers.
The plugin is not perfect: the interface could definitely be more streamlined, and recently I started to miss the ability to put a captcha field (or a honeypot as someone suggested) in the subscription form. The lack of such feature is causing me the minor hassle of periodically checking subscribers and deleting fake ones.
But since the developer is working for free and keeping the plugin up to date, I have only praise for this plugin, and for its developer.
PS. Please note that my website is on a low-frills server, so if your installation is not working, it might be your provider's fault, or just incorrect configuration.
This plugin is not working. It doesn't even appear on the left menu bar after activation.
Nice work, i like it
Plugin offers double opt-in only. However, with some small modifications, you can add single opt-in support. I wrote about it here: How to add single opt-in to WP Autoresponder
Not recommendable for a sequence of autoresponders: I cannot recommend the plugin. I put quite some time in it to make everything run. I have only one use case: Send out a sequence of autoresponders. However, it is completely unclear when these emails get send out. If you set a sequence of 0, they'll send more or less immediately (with the next wpcron-event). If you set a sequence of 1, well, I don't know. Something like "after 24 hours + X" or so. It is NOT "on the next day". It was too much of a hassle to understand at what time the next autoresponder is sent, so I uninstalled the plugin.
Troubleshooting I figured so far:
For sending out mails: Make sure to setup the SMTP server correctly and note that new subscribers get wp-cron scheduled. Use cron view or something similar to check out whether your cron tasks are scheduled or not.
Two more possibilities for errors via SMTP:
Does your server use encryption? Can you connect to the SMTP server without a certificate warning?
Tried all advice and idea given on this site. Nothing. Autoreponders just won't send out.
