XOOPS Newsletter Mailer

Quote:
Actually this should be in the forum, especially due to the high demand for a decent mailinglist for a few years now...


So, we have the EvenNews mod which is ok, but we could sure could use something much more powerful.

There's a thread started here
https://xoops.org/modules/repository/s ... &com_order=0#comment26836

in the evennew mod page that is better continued here.

Do we work on improving EvenNews or do we try to port phplist or simplenews to XOOPS?

Re: XOOPS Newsletter Mailer

Don't forget there's one more option for xoops: the Xmail module: I tested the latest 2.0 beta version, but it still has bugs , it has no decent English translation, don't work well with the 2.2.x version (as much as I saw) and is lake some fundemental functions.

A good mailinglist module should include:
1. categories (subject categories for archiving)
2. groups (for mailing users)
3. a very strong and stable (packet based) "user import" function
4. import-export from-to csv and/or pdf
5. custum fields (or hard coded, but with the ability to show/hide).
6. emails is sent in packets (with the ability to choose how much in a session) - not booging shared servers.
7. 3 screens for the users (with the ability to show/hide from groups):
- 1 - subscribe/unsubscribe
- 2 - subscribers list (built as a phone/contacts/addressbook with categories & permitions and alphabetic sorting)
- 3 - newsletters archive with categories/subjects.

It's just things I shoot ... I'll think of some more soon ...

To ask the obvious, do you have any subscribers?

IF yes, check your XOOPs system admin > preferences > mail setup

Re: XOOPS Newsletter Mailer

try phplist - www.phplist.com It's not a XOOPS module but I've got 13,000 subscribers and it's the best reliable option for me

Re: XOOPS Newsletter Mailer

Agree that php list is great.

We're exploring the possibility of improving EvenNews

But it would also be nice to port phplist over to a XOOPS module.

Actually Andy I think since mailinglist (a real decent one) is the most required thing in the community for some years now, we might all unite and gather some $$$$ for this project to serve us all.

but I mean something "real and strong". not just a simple mailinglist, but also something to manage contacts and customers....
