Flexible, but hard to maintain
By , for WP 4.1

You get a lot of flexibility, however as automatic upgrade is not supported keeping it running is really hard. The own plugin and add-ons concept is clearly overengineered.

Fantastic for newsletter
By , for WP 4.0

I am using it mainly for newsletters and newsletter subscriptions, but I can see it can do much more. Very impressed with the cron integration as well.

On the downside the help documentation is a little lacking, but if you take the time you will find it's a very powerful plugin.

Also managed to extend it to use my own custom theme and custom email templates and it's working great.

So to conclude a nice powerful plugin but needs some time to learn… it's not a simple install and activate plugin.

my best newsletter plugin for WP
By ,

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.

No documentation

The author does not seem to support it.

Too complex/criptic
By , for WP 3.5.1

Absolutely not user friendly.

No Paragraphs
By , for WP 3.6

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.

Awesome plugin! Does what its supposed to do.

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!
