This component is an excellent solution for newsletters. Installation and configuration are a breeze.
I use jNews on several sites.
Some time ago I had an issue with the cron scheduling. Not only did Diego provide the solution, but in the newer versions the problem has been dealt with.
Five stars for sure!

After analyzing all Joomla Extensions for newsletters I've decided that the Pro JNews component should be able to answer my demandings for a particular website that i'm working on. It was my first time dealing with this kind of functionalities so i was a bit over cautious and compared this component several times — even after the installation was done — with the other joomla components of the same kind (and others not joomla related). I realized this one is really the best for what i need. The documentation guide us very well, not only through the component it self, but also through the complexities of the newsletters world, with fundamental tips. The component's framework is very stable and intuitive, and basically it really does everything it claims to do.
I was also amazed at how thorough the support team worked with me when i needed, even in small details. I felt i placed an (very) important part of that website functionalities in very good and capable hands. I totally recommend it.

The application is a great solution to email list management, and just excellent! The same goes to the live-chat support who held my hand until my issue was resolved. Can't ask for more just to keep up the good work, we all appreciate your effort!

Just spent the last while online to the live chat guru at Joobi. The guy helped me with the install, config and i think he would have made me a coffee if he could have. This is by far some of the best Technical Support I have seen in a long time and makes the entire JNews product and support exceptionally good. I could not recommend them highly enough.
Great Product, Great Service, 5 Stars

I was looking for a replacement to the Vemod mailing system we had been using on our website (it did the job but was a bit complicated to setup for "special" newsletters). I tried several extensions and this one was my favorite. The free version only offers basic automation through tags: for example, it doesn't pull new content since the last newsletter, and doesn't seem to have module insertion capabilities. But on the whole, it is quite flexible and easy to use. The template system is good, and I only need to do a bit of copy-paste to pull in the new content from our website and fill in the letter. The sending system (with prior verification sent to the admin) also seems very reliable. The commercial versions advertise more capabilities, but for our non-profit association, this is just fine.

I recently started using this and am mightily impressed. Fantastic features, and very nicely put together. I caused myself a problem during the initial configuration and could not work out what I had done. Luckily the online help had me back up and running in less than 15 minutes.

We've been using jNews Pro for quite a while (back when it was Acajoom). The component has always been very solid and easy to use. Some items (like cron sending and scheduled newsletters) were a bit difficult for us to figure out, and some hard lesson were learned, but not because of any fault with the software.

Joobi support (especially the live chat) is stellar.

I had been looking for details on assigning front-end subscribers to a specific Jnews mailing list. I read the Wizard info and it was not exactly clear how to accomplish this. So, I posted a request for further info and got a detailed instruction within a few hours. It was 'right on'. I tested it - it worked perfectly and I'm on my way again! Cheers. Linda Jimerson

Diego worked with me, not only to upgrade my software from the old Acajoom version, but also troubleshoot some issues I was having. I did run into one issue, and that is the subscription via url feature does not seem to work. I think the documentation might need to be corrected. However, using the submit via external form worked just as well, so it was no big deal. Overall this extension is top of class and the support is just as good.

The newsletter tool works fine. The support is there, that's for sure. But the highly promising SmartNewsletter is simply not working. After having been in touch with several supporters at joobi and after having received three updates (although without changelog), I finally have to give up: SmartNewsletter is not ready to be promoted at all. The sending is very, very unstable (say: not guaranteed at all), the building of a new SmartNewsletter shows quite quirky behaviour with unsure outcome. I'll give it a two-star-rating: 4 for the regular newsletter tool, but a straight minus for the promotion of an extension thats still under development.
