Had bought 3 license a few years ago. Needed them just now. It was no problem to get a renewel code and help to active my fresh installed JNEWS. Than ran in a K2 problem, but with the great help from the supportdesk it was fixed in minutes. The support is great! No question is to much.

The extension is pretty good for a basic mass email tool. I had a MySQL error when importing subscribers so I put in a ticket. The support team answers fast, but they are not really great. They don't even know what a host entry is, so they can't see my site that is in development. The person I've dealt with just seems a bit confused overall.

I have been a user of JNews Plus for several years now and I am about to upgrade to "Pro." Not only have I been well pleased with the product over the years, the support has been simply outstanding.

As I was working through some upgrade issues I was assisted by HAO who took the extra time to ensure I was up and running.

I've had similar experiences with other Joobi staff as well in the past such as Cheryl.

Even their "Core" Products are outstanding and you'll quickly find the reason to upgrade for more options.

Just wanted to say great product and great support, Joobi. Keep it up!!

We have been using JNews 5 years now from their very beginning (Acajoom Plus) .

I can say we are more than excited with THE S.U.P.P.O.R.T they provide and the tool overall. Every single issue we faced with the tool/license it was solved immediately and i can say that the word professionalism is an understatement. Jnews has plenty of settings to feed even the most demanding users and the level of difficulty for setup i believe is quite easy.

Recently we decided to upgrade our joomla site to 2.5, and JNews support team provided us with all the support needed to do that.

P.S. I have been using numerous tools and products but i have never experienced such a great S.U.P.P.O.R.T

Using jNews for newsletter administration is simply a breeze.

I/we chose jNews for our scoutinggroup for its versatile and userfriendly interface, enabling us to administer newsletters to a list of members, parents at support-members even though some of them are not registered on our website.

Also, we have other means of opting in/out, and jNews does not force these links into newsletters (can be though if chosen).

Easy template/list/newsletter/statistics/sending-handeling.

Staff is friendly and answers quickly.

Much recommended!
Thank you, jNews!

I needed a simple, but effective Newsletter component, simple enough for my client to use it without calling me 10 times a week... I had used Acajoom (produced by the same team) in the past, so I knew the component was solid. This time, I had a little issue, and I needed some help from the ssupport. They found out what was blocking Jnews, and reconfigured it directly in my website, in 24h. And I was using the free version... Such a great support sure deserves some recognition! Keep up the good work!

jNews is a first rate component, and a powerful one. Like many other components, it needs careful studying to ensure that you gets everything right but once you have fine tuned it, it is consistently reliable. The database and email listing system is very good, and flexible, enabling many customised lists to be constructed. And, if you run into difficulties, you can be assured of a reasonably quick and reliable assistance using the ticket system.
I would recommend jNews to anyone looking for a good newsletter system.

What can i say except an amazing piece of kit but an equally or better support service. Being a newbie to Joomla i was having trouble installing all the parts of Jnews but incredibly there is a live chat support function on their site. After i contacted a support operator and explained my experience level, the guy there not only explained things to me but actually installed everything to my site. How good is that!
Incredible business sense which obviously leads to great components and satisfied customers which is why i will be back again.
My experience just tells me i brought from the right company so great work guys its been a pleasure.
Merry Christmas and see you again soon.

This is a great application. The back-end is user friendly with many features.
Just when you trying to insert subscribers from external csv file take care for double mails and names. You will get message for succeed import but you cannot find the new subscribers in the list even if one mail or one name is double. Thanks for excellent support!

I've tried a couple of similar extensions in the past, but this one is the one I'm going to stick with. We have the free version, and it is so easy to use. We needed to send some HTML emails as newsletters from our site, and this extension allowed us to control and customize everything we needed. The templates are so nice, we are going to consider purchasing the $$ version in the future. Thanks, y'all!

Installed without difficulty as do most other Joomla extensions that are well coded. Functions pretty much as advertised. No bugs found.

The only two minor things I would comment on unfavorably are 1: There does not appear to be any way to remove all of the the templates found in the extension, only thing you can do is to click on them and it directs you to buy them. I get the marketing angle, but it borders on annoying. 2. And this might be my error, but even after selecting to include all my users as being subscribed to the newsletters upon creating new - it did not work. I had to manually add them all.

Otherwise, a very clever and well designed extension.

Thanks for your work.

I've had trouble installing this application at the beginning. In the backend everything was working fine, just the subscription module in the frondend gave errors. I've submitted a ticket to the support, but at the same time I was contacted by Diego, to see if everything was going as planned. I explained my problem, gave the link towards the problem ticket, and I got an very quick response, that the error was fixed, and he gave me a download link in order to get the correct version.
Installed the 2nd version last weekend, tested it around, and it works like a charm!

Quick and easy setup Newsletters. Users can subscribe to different newsletters at the same time.
Creation of campaigns is really easy! And above all that, support is direct, to the point, and innovative.

Thanks for the good job!

I have been using the free edition (JNews Core) for some time now and have seen a lot of updates and improvements in the mean time.

Is it the best newsletter component? I don't know, because I did not compare other product recently. For me Jnews is offering a free solution for several sites even with custom-styled templates.

Online support is a very nice-to-have item. Today I had a technical issue with displaying the archive and within 5 minutes it was solved.
