i ask my money back
hope they are professional and give me back

bad news mailpoet2 stop send newsletter!!!!

Totally Awesome

I’m on year three with this plugin and just love it. It makes my life easier, works well and the sending service is perfect. Customer service is fast, friendly and very helpful. I’ve had to ask for help several times (my own inexperience, not their fault) and they have fixed me up every time. And been extremely nice about it.

Le plus aboutit des plugins de Newsletter !

Notre agence web utilise MailPoet depuis déjà plusieurs années. Nous estimons que c’est le meilleur plugin de sa catégorie, à la fois simple à utiliser au quotidien et terriblement efficace et complet. Nos clients apprécient beaucoup, surtout l’envoi de newsletters automatiques en cas de nouveaux contenus : gain de temps pour eux et efficacité dans la communication.

Nearly perfect

I like MailPoet a lot. The free version already is very powerful.

My only complaint: The forms do not take over the main CSS prescription, so that they do not fit cleanly in the page design.

Easy to use and full featured

Excellent free/paid plugin for newsletters. Free version has all the basic (and a few advanced features) to get your blog off the ground. Paid version offers excellent value with the extra features you get.
