Get rid of this plugin - WP.org facilitates Exploits Vunerablities
By , for WP 3.9.1

Warning this plugin is known as a gateway for exploits.

There needs to be an abuse option to flag down a bad script which can take the entire site down.


  • why does the plugin name differ from the plugin download name?
  • why this exploit script allowed to be in the plugin repository of WordPress.org even after there are comments about its behavior?

Huge exploit
By , for WP 3.9.1

A huge exploit caused serious problems to my server. All my websites (with or without mailpoet) hacked and i'm spending hours trying to detect and remove infected files uploaded on server. Totally unacceptable and frustrating.

Also, very late response as you realized what was going on and informed users just a few weeks after the problem appeared.

You have found and fixed the problem, but how we are going to clean our servers from all the rubbish? You should also find a solution for that!

Thanks to MailPoet/Wysija my website was hacked and infected with malicious code and abused to spamming.

This exploit is unnoticeable and puts your site and all your visitors in danger!

I strongly do NOT recommend this plugin...

Thanks for the exploit
By , for WP 3.9.1

I really liked this plugin, but I never had a plugin that offers a professional version for a lot of money, coming with an exploit right away. Very poorly handled, spend hours removing the php code uploaded by the hackers and on securing my site with just guessing which plugin was responsible. I would prefer giving 0 stars for putting my whole site in danger. I will go for sendy instead.

My WordPress site already got hacked because of MailPoet

Versions before 2.6.7 (July 1st) are vulnerable!

You notice people about that!

Pro Version - Biggest WASTE OF MONEY
By , for WP 3.9.1

I am so disappointed in the pro version of Mailpoet. I have 2000 email addresses and it literally tells me that it will take 6 DAYS to send out the newsletter. I don't see any benefit of spending 100 dollars on this upgrade. I would really like my money back...REALLY WOULD LIKE IT BACK. I am a blogger and don't make a lot of money. I thought that this would be helpful to me. I was much happier with WYSIJA, and am about to check back into using mail chimp.

Mailpoet is unfinished software full of errors.
By , for WP 3.9.1

After setting up the program, my page stopped running. There was only the error message.
It is unsolved automation, checking out and moving subscribes to another mailinglist.
But mostly, it is not possible to create backups newsletters, client lists, just nothing. Font encoding is incorrect.

All opinions and reviews they get through emotional blackmail before users program really tried.

Hopelessly Unreliable
By , for WP 3.8.1

The application hangs (white screen). I've tested it on 2 websites which are hosted on to different servers. The problem is the same on both servers.

The blog posts are not sent out to the subscribers.

I've written numerous emails to the owner since last year but they have not been able to solve it until today.

I'll give this plugin "0" rating if possible.

No "Re-Send Confirmation" Feature
By , for WP 3.6.1

This is a newsletter plugin right? How does a newsletter app not have a way for me to resend the confirmation email to users? I can mass confirm a bunch of people... But no way to re-send.
