Very intuitive, had absolutely no problem importing our contacts list and sending out our first mailing within an hour of installation.
Also love the statistics and tracking.
Thank you!

Been spending a few hours with AcyMailing and all I can say is, WOW!
I have tried others before, but this beats everything (regarding mailings) so far.
Easy to install. And if you (like me) don’t read manuals (except when you’re down and out ;-) ), you are still able to send your first mailing within hours.
Fantastic job, I will highly recommend it to anyone.

One of the first (free)Newsletter components in which everything works immediately! Very professional and well-thought design, structure and process to sustain newsletter mailings.
What I like most: import mechanism for subscribers, subscribe and unsubscribe mechanism and leveled parameters (newsletter overrules list/template, list/template overrules general configuration). So... Excellent!

I have a database of 40 000 people and AcyMailing handled my whole list beautifully. Unlike some other components (which I used for 2 years and battled with for the last 12 months) the unsubscribe feature actually works and you can't add someone accidentally once they have been blacklisted. There is a bounce and cron function which works from within the component. You don't have to install any other components to get these features to work. The support is great too. Forget the rest AcyMailing is the best!!

This is simply one of the best newsletter components for Joomla. I recommend it to all my clients.

However, as with many, but not all, free extensions, the back link should be optional otherwise it is not a free extension in my view. If all developers did that our sites would look like link farms.

Thank you for your review.

I saw a post on the Joomla forum about removing our footer back link (just by adding one CSS line) so you can apply this method until we add a simple option on our free version (next release!).

Our back link is not added in your e-mails, neither on the module but only on the archive section so it's not obtrusive.

Anyway, we don't want users to upgrade to our commercial version only because they want to remove our back link so we will give the option to remove it on our free version as well... AcyMailing Starter will really be a free extension! ;)

I have only used the free version but can tell you that I love it. I opted to buy acajoom pro based on the price and the feature set and am very happy with it. Now with that said the top version of Acymailing does offer more features for more money but I did not need the full feature list. For example, the top version come with auto responder and bounce handling, I did not need the bounce at this time but did need the auto responder. In sum both these programs are great because I have used them and am very satisfied with them. I will probably buy the top version of this program for one of my websites.

I manage a professional standard mailing system as part of my job, so when I downloaded the free version, I expected to be severely limited.

The basic free version is exceptional. Very simple to use and well documented. I can mass-subscribe users myself, get them to create / log into their Community Builder account and develop a relationship with them afterwards. Extremely intuitive and highly recommended.

If you're running this professionally for clients, I would upgrade to the full version for high-level statistical analysis, cron jobs, campaign functionality and more.

The one word of caution I would say is that styling HTML emails for multiple browsers, webmails and Outlook 2007 (grr!) remains a horrible job whatever you use - don't blame this fantastic bit of software for that - you still need to know what you're doing!

This is my first time I write a review and that's because I'am very impressed about AcyMailing. The installation and the use are 100% free of errors or what so ever. The integration with my template(s) is perfect. I don't have to style anything afterwards and that makes me and my clients very happy! The translation to dutch is done very well. Compliments to your all.

I am using the Enterprise Version on 2 commercial sites very successful.

The features are excellent, like bounce handling, multilanguage support and export/import features. Very usefull I find also the statistics functions and integration with other products.

Adrian and his team is doing an excellent job responding within very short time supporting me to find all tricks and fixing some template issues.

Well done!!

Wow! For a free starter package, I wasn't expecting the package that I got! What a deal! And so intuitive, you can teach yourself in no time at all. I'm good with the starter package for now, but once I get some practice, I am sure I will be wanting to upgrade! Thanks, guys - killer extension!

Easy to handle with many very important features this is excellent work.

There are lot of options! For example you can preview and test emailing before sending it! Simple to use and a good choice if you haven't got too much registers because there's no queue management in the free version.
On the other hand, the commercial one is not too expensive (about 30 euros) and give you some options.

Thank you for your review.

Our free version also uses the queue to send e-mails.
It's done in a different way (there is no automatic processing on our free version) but you can configure a pause and start and stop the send process as you want (manually), even with our free version.
If anything goes wrong, AcyMailing will keep your e-mails in the queue and you will be able to resume the send process later.

Why did it take this long for someone to come along with a newsletter component that just works the way it should? From the purchase to the installation, to the day-to-day use, this is the best I've found.

That's not to say there isn't room for improvement, particularly in the CAPTCHA (commercial versions only), which is not very configurable.

It would also be nice if you could easily change the dates of created newsletters. That feature would be particularly helpful for designers putting older content into a new site design, or even into an existing site with AcyMailing setup for the first time.

It looks like the developer is regularly updating this component, and I look forward to advances down the line!

The captcha has been recently added to AcyMailing and you can already:
-> set its size
-> set the number of characters you want to display in it
-> specify a list of characters AcyMailing will use (so you can limit it to only numbers for example)
-> configure the background-colour
-> configure the text colour

Please write a post on our forum or send us an e-mail if you have more ideas so we can add it to our todo list!
