Re: XOOPS Newsletter Mailer

Greetings all.
I'm keen to see this module made available. Has there been any progress?
I'm willing to contribute towards the cost. PM with details.

Re: XOOPS Newsletter Mailer

@ comflash2

I work with phplist for years and can tell that it'll be too messy to port it, since it's quite messy itself (too much is hardcoded there, not a good separation of functionality from interface ... and so on ...).

Anyway, things are moving with the developement as I understood, and contributers are welcome to join and share .....

You've got my vote for that. I propose €300 ($380) in support.

if Skalpa agrees, it can be arranged.

- Automatic rules for periodic dispatches
- Flexible content generation
- Bounce checking
- Throttle checking
- Scalability
- Paid subscriptions via additional XOOPS modules

Stay tuned for more developments.
