This tool removes the manual process of keeping you register user list clean (a very manual process currently). A simple and effective house cleaning solution.
RegReminder allows you to automate the sending of reminder emails.
If a user has not activated or not logged into your website this component will gives you the ability to send reminders and optionally delete these accounts if they do not respond within a period of time.
RegReminder is the an easy way to help manage your users in the following ways;
* Remind registered user who have not activated their account
* Remind users who have activated their account but never logged in
* Encourage users back to your site who have not logged in for a period of time
* Delete users do not complete the registration process even after reminders have been set (helps remove those accounts with invalid email addresses)
* Send reminders to users who have never activated their accounts
* Send reminders to users who have activated their accounts but never logged in
* Send reminders to users who have not logged into your site for a configurable period of time
* Automation / Scheduler - Can be scheduled daily, weekly or monthly
* Customize your reminder emails (HTML or Plain text emails). This will allow you to personalize your reminder emails and use your persuasive powers to encourage users back to your website.
* List of Merge fields available for customising reminder emails (eg. Password reset link, opt-out link, activaltion link etc.) .
* Allows you to set the number of reminders emails to a single user before their account is removed
* Ability to delete users who have not activated their account or have never logged in
* BCC reminder emails
* Identifies which users have activated their account
* Identifies which users have active accounts but never logged in
* Limit the number of emails that are sent. Some hosting companies will only allow a set number of emails per hours. You can control the number of reminder emails to send
* Logs all reminders sent and when the automatic scheduler has been run.
* Language support
* CAN-SPAM compliant
* Manage Opt-out users and exclude user groups
Functionality will work with other components such as JomSocial and Community builder.

Watch the settings you choose for how many emails go out a day. Not a fault of the app, but our culture; it's easy to get on a spam list even if you are responding to people that registered on your site. It's fairly easy to get off of them nowadays if that happens by checking with MXToolbox.
The services are great, I reported a minor problem with the new release this morning and by mid-afternoon Dwayne had released a new version that fixed my problem.
As it stands you can't go wrong getting this extension.
A small issue (not related to the component but to our site) was quickly fixed due to the speedy mail response of the developer.
So A++ for this component and the support,
Thank you, this is the way Joomla Extensions should be.
Two things can be improve :
.Scheduling hourly or all X minutes for big site
.Currently the scheduler will only automatically send reminders for "Incomplete Registrations" and "Users who have activated their account but never login" but not "User Reminder"
More important is the developer support. Dwayne is very responsive to questions and feedback. *Not that this extension needs much because it is built well out of the box.
With automation it will be 5 stars for sure!
Automation is now available in the latest versions (version numbers 18.104.22.168 & 22.214.171.124 or later). Thanks for your feedback
The major plus point is SUPPORT. So far one of the best I came across since I started dealing with joomla extensions. I can tell you one thing for sure, with this EXCELLENT level of service you will never feel left alone or ripped off by some computer freak. These guys really take you serious.
I wish everyone could support you at this level or at least 50% of that.
Keep the GOOD WORK.
One last word, if I had to buy this product again, I'll do it with my eyes closed.
For references feel free to contact me.
Thanks for your feedback and yes this functionality has been requested by many users. As of the 18th Feb 2011, the Automation functionality is in development along with some other changes. This release is expected to be available in March after the Joomla 1.6 release of the component has been made available. If you do purchase this product now then as per the licence agreement you are entitled to a free upgrade for any releases that occur within 90 days of your purchase, meaning it will be free to upgrade to the release containing the automation functionality.
Thanks for this extension, I am looking forward for new features.
The installation was easy, quick done and the help-section in the component is very helpful!
Customizing emails no problem and really fast and friendly answer from the developer at a problem I had.
Only the german translation in the backend was not 100% correct, but, it can only be a 5 star rating!
