Sends Multiple Emails To People
By ,

Something is wrong with the Pause button

No emails opened
By , for WP 4.1

I installed the plugin but it didn't see my existing subscribers, so I had to find another plugin to export the subscribers, then reimport them to this plugin. After this I sent the email, but for 42,000 subscribers, it takes time - currently its sent out nearly 7000 in about 3 days (it's limited to about 00 per hour). That means that I can't send from WordPress to all subscribers quickly - it will take a couple of weeks. That's not the plugin's fault - it the limit set by the hosting companies. However, of the 7000 newsletters that have gone out as I write this, only one has been opened. And guess what? I opened it! I found the email in my spam even though I'd sent a test email and told my spam filter it wasn't spam - the live email ended up there again. So I found it, but no-one else has trawled their spam to read the email newletter. Gutted!

Pretty buggy
By ,

Poor, considering the bugs in this and the paid extensions that half of don't work properly unless you have a vanilla WP theme with no other plugins.
Could have spent less on a proper paid newsletter plugin.

Translation??!
By , for WP 3.9.1

I can translate the mails and success-/error-messages only, but not the backend.
My client cannot understand english so this plugin is useless for him.

You write "fully translatable from administrative panels" as a feature, but it's not a feature... There are Plugins where you can easiely translate mo/po-files.

No support and not professional
By ,

I got no support for the pro version for 2 months now, the follow up plugin became a blank textarea without even changing anything except updating wordpress and the plugin...
Also the plugin looks still in alpha step with many todo's.
About to ask for a refund

Create a 500 internal error on wp-admin
By , for WP 3.8.3

The plugin create a 500 internal error on the wp-admin page : the wp admin is inaccessible. I must go to the db to desactivate the plugin and log me on the admin !

500 internal error due to this error :
`PHP Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/var/www/[...]/wp-content/plugins/newsletter/users/users.php' (include_path='.:') in /var/www/[...]/wp-content/plugins/newsletter/plugin.php on line 1158

Cannot import custom values
By , for WP 3.5

Cannot import custom values which renders this plugin useless for professional use.

Confusing and incomplete
By , for WP 3.4.2

Although it seems to have a great potential and it's solid, this plugin in it's actual state (3.4.2) has very confusing configuration options, bad documentation, and the so-called Newsletter Extensions (for sending posts automatically) are no where to be found.
