Couldn't get it to work

Probably good, but couldn't get it to work.

Apart from the fact that this plugin is the most easy to install, the support I have been receiving it's one of its kind.

I am a web developer spending over $2,000 monthy on premium plugins, servers, domains etc for clients. So far, the kind of incredible support I have been receiving is worth mentioning.

If you are looking for the best autoresponder, here it is. And the PRO version works better than it says. And I can assure it will be all you need with the support that comes with it.

I even sent them access to my database and they took their time to adjust a few stuffs my host couldn't help me with.

Super thanks Broadfast Pro Team.

Funziona bene, anche se non esiste un motore di ricerca per cercare i contatti nella mailing list.

Very Good!

I think that it is a good plugin!

It is a good plugin but there are some key features missing
By , for WP 3.9.2

Overall it is a very good plugin, for someone that is starting an email list, but there are some key and simple features that are missing.
In my opinion some of these features are:

  • Send a test email to see that everyting is ok before sending the email to your list.
  • Have a redirect page after registration and another redirect page after confirming the registration (Double opt-in)
  • Be able to send an email even if the number of days have passed. For example I want to send an email after 3 days, but I have 2 persons that are already registered 5 days ago, I want those 2 persons to receive the email too.
  • Be able so clear the email logs.
  • If these features where added I think this would be the most simple but great autoresponder plugin.

BFT Lite

The only autoresponder plugin in WordPress that is intuitive enough for me to make it work!

Lean and effective auto responder

I was interested to use an auto responder plugin with Amazon SES (using DKIM validation) and "BFT Autoresponder", in conjunction with the "Amazon SES DKIM Mailer" free plugin, is a great combination. It just works!

For a good overview of DKIM and why it is important for the deliverability of your emails, google "Sending verified emails through Amazon Simple Email Service with DKIM and PHPMailer".

As a comparison, the popular MailPoet does not let you use DKIM authentication, unless you buy pro version. And if you have a shared account (such as Bluehost), SMTP does not work (SMTP ports are blocked on shared accounts). You are stuck with either sending email using your account or using two reccomended email providers, which cost much more (10x) than Amazon SES.

A great plugin!

A neat plugin that offers many of the capabilities you'd find in paid-for solutions. If you don't need state-of-the-art capabilities, I'd definitely recommend trying this plugin.

I used the plugin for a week or so, then switched to the paid "PRO" version, which supports attachments in outgoing emails - an important feature for me.

Importation of my data from Aweber into the free version worked smoothly and switching to the PRO version was seamless.

It satisfies all my requirements for an autoresponder (which admittedly are humble) and enabled me to dump Aweber.

While even the PRO version doesn't offer all the sophistication of Aweber, I got got tired of paying Aweber every month, and am finding I can do pretty much all I want with this option.

It works pefectly

You cannot beat free.. Very good autoresponder. I use it everyday and highly recommend.
