I have tried several newsletter extensions for Joomla and have found that they are either too complicated or they just don't seem to work. Since I am an older fellow & a reformed HTML tinkerer I need extra time plus trial & error to get Joomla stuff to do what I want. Some extensions are intuitive for me and work out of the box. Others drive me bonkers. Jnews has published an extension for newsletters that actually works. I am not only grateful but happy as well. Please keep up the good work! Sincerely, Kenputer

If ever we had a problem the support service worked perfectly and very quickly both by mail and chat.

I registered just to write this review.

jNews is a wonderful, versatile, powerful component, and it merits a 5-star review simply for how well it works. It is made EVEN BETTER by the spectacular support offered by the jNews team.

Even though I was using the FREE, UNPAID version, a member of their live support team worked with me for over an hour to resolve a problem, and even afterwards gave me his email address so I could follow up with my success and progress. I felt truly appreciated and I wasn't even a paying customer!

In a time and industry where customers are endlessly punished and treated as criminals before they even have the opportunity to pay for a virtual product, the Joobi team provides exceptional service to everyone. As soon as my current business venture becomes profitable I intend to upgrade to a paid package even though the free one suits all my needs. This is a company that has earned and truly deserves my dollar (and yours too).

I don't submit too many of these but I had to post about JNews! SUPER easy and quick to download and install. This is BIG for me because I usually flinch a little wondering if there will be some conflict or bug that will cause my entire site to crash! Moving on, super easy to set up and use with included templates and subscriber lists! I highly recommend this if you're looking for a more robust email solution or newsletter solution for your Joomla site!

Not too sure why this is popular, it started out okay, but after using it for a few weeks, there is obvious problems. Perhaps I am an idiot, but when making newsletters, the menu's seem to get cached, making duplicates of newsletters that I am unaware of with the same time, then after refreshing a few times it shows up with a different heading or ID, editing is hit or miss, sometimes the editing screen comes up, sometimes it takes me straight to a preview screen. Then when i go to send out the newsletter it sometimes picks the wrong ID, thus resulting in the wrong mailout and the mailout screen also randomly comes up with 2 different versions of it, one with the "send" and another without. There are also display issues between the preview and what your actually editing, they don't always match, thus requiring messing around with the html after the newsletter was generated before mailout.

I don't do too many of these things but every once and a while a product/company makes you stand up and take notice.

We were users of Acajoom (the free version) and we wanted to upgrade to JNews when moving to Joomla 2.5.6. After looking over the differences between the free version and the pro version we decided to take the plunge.

Since then we have been extremely happy. Support (via tickets AND live chat) have been amazing. I have asked several questions and was treated with the utmost respect each time; no question was too trivial.

If you are looking for a good newsletter option, check out Joobi... you will not be disappointed.

Thanks for offering such a great non-commercial version for creating a newsletter. It works well and so far I cannot tell that there is something wrong or difficult to work with.

I had been looking for a good newsletter component, I found jNews, and installed it, I was very impressed with all its features:

HTML Template.
The ability to have several lists.
The statistics feature is very handy.

I could go on, but you can install it, and see for yourself, all its great features.

If you are looking for a newletters component, I definitely recommend jNews.

Does just about everything i want it to, plus it has default built in css styles, which is nice because the blue style happened to fit my site just perfectly. Practically installed it and it was perfect right out of the box. Another thing I like it the variety of templates they have for sending out emails, overall this makes to be a pretty great extension.

I love using this Tool since i installed Acajoom 4.1.4 Plus Version. It became a essential part of our Website with hundrets of reciepients.

Now our System got attacked by PHP Injection and the Fourm did a great work to help.

To be enabled to update my Version to jNews I chose the Live Chat Option at and within 5 Minutes everything had been done. I got the file and a Link to Update Help via YouTube...

Great Work! Thanks a lot. Excellent Rating!

I have problems with special characters of my language on Acajoom, but when I upgrade to jNews, everything funciton as it should. Installation was easy but I have a problem with 'thank you' page after subscription. Thanks to quick support I solved this issue. Because I work as a non-profit and have limited funds, I use free core version. But support was notwithstanding excellent. I really recommend jNews. Thanks to Joobi Team.
