Works Easily
By , for WP 4.4.2

Newsletter works easily, without a lot of fuss. My only negative is the speed, takes quite awhile to send 413 newsletters.

Awful interface
By , for WP 4.4.2

Really confusing interface lacking the obvious controls like 'send now'. I've been trying to find the control for sending to subscribers marked test for two days and still can't find it (I saw it somewhere).

And there seems to be no support.

Won't be buying and I'll be uninstalling the plugin.

Now the best out there!

Awesome plugin. Now that it gives the option of using the internal wp_mail and Postman, etc....along with it's own version of wp_mail/smtp it is clearly the best newsletter plugin out there. Thanks!

great plugin

Near perfect newsletter plugin
By , for WP 4.4.2

I was using MailChimp previous of switching to this plugin and I must say I'm so happy to say goodbye to them. I think The Newsletter Plugin is very intuitive and relatively easy to use. It did take me a few minutes to figure out how the lists and profile fields work, but once I figured it out it all makes sense. I will say that it would be nice if the targeting filters had some additional options, like the ability to send based on a profile field, but who knows, maybe that will get added in the future. Compared to MailChimp it's a breath of fresh air. Thank you for doing such a great job with this plugin.

Very good!

So far everything has been pretty intuitive. I got a little hung up with the html editor when designing my email. I think a little more updating can be done there with features and code cleaning, but overall very impressed.

Awesome

Thanks for this awesome plugin!

However, I just downloaded the plugin and I installed in on my local machine (development) and it throws a lot of errors starting with:

The plugin generated 16055 characters of unexpected output during activation. If you notice “headers already sent” messages, problems with syndication feeds or other issues, try deactivating or removing this plugin.

I'll paste here the system info so maybe you'll be able to find something useful (for debugging):

one of the worst experiences ever
By , for WP 4.4.2

I didn't listen to all the people who said this plugin doesn't work right, figuring as an advanced user, I should be able to figure it out, even if its not perfect.

I don't know how this plugin is getting all these high reviews but its a clear sign that those who blindly praise it have no clue how deficient this plugin really is and I should have listened to the few who actually had technical experience with it.

1. It doesn't send mail and when it does its so hit and miss there is NO WAY IN HELL you can rely on it, KNOWING it was sent, that's lame to say the least.

2. The server is configured perfectly, all other plugins using the mail server work just fine, just this one can't send anything out with any degree of reliability, even internal test messages are hit and miss, ridiculous.

3. Finally, when you click on "totally remove this plugin" it gives warning about are sure and then does absolutely NOTHING, just sits there with a blank page like an idiot, that is the kind of reliability you can expect with it.

I guess providing a broken plugin with no means of support unless you pay for a dysfunctional product is the way they have chosen to go. You can't get any help when it doesn't work, unless you sign up for a forum and hope someone responds or pay for a broken product only to get support, that's just terrible. VERY VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED.
