Excellent component

Very good functionality

Ease of use

Easy to use


Support is fantastic. David-Andrew even wrote a custom piece of code so that I could manage my existing subscribers.



Value for money


I used this to: A fairly large (8,000-10,000) mailing list.

I have bene using ccNewsletter for fe years now and have nothing but praise for this product.

I recently ran into a display issue on the front page. I contacted support and they quickly and efficiently fixed the issue.

Highly recommended.

If you are looking for something that is easy to install and manage, look no further, this is it.

I also like the support, they are fast and efficient.

It 's the first time I do a review for a Joomla! extension. But I would suggest this extension for the simplicity of use and for the prompt and professional support service offered.


I don't make this comment lightly. I've been a Joomla user since 2006 and have used numerous extensions; most of which I like. However, if I could only choose a single extension for my website, ccNewsletter with no question would be the choice. It's easy to install and easy to use. Their technical support staff are professional and courteous with any level of question. I highly recommend this extension. This review is the highest review I have submitted to date.

Simple to use

Posted on 17 December 2013

A simple to use extension, just like all other extension from Chill Creations. The manual tells all you need to setup a Newsletter.

When something is not clear the online support is answering your questions the same day.

I purchased and implemented ccNewsletter last month for two school PTO sites that I manage. I found the component very easy to install, configure, and use; which was especially helpful for the housewives who use the component to send newsletters to the school's parents.

I did have to modify the component to be able to specify the sender of each email, instead of having one default sender (different PTO functions send emails for different reasons, and they wanted to be able to get their own replies, etc.)

I also had to add some additional plug-ins and custom programming to be able to handle undeliverable email in an automatic way.

Additionally, if the sending of emails is interrupted and needs to be restarted, the component starts back from the beginning, causing multiple emails to be sent to the same recipients. It would be nice if this crash recovery was more graceful.

With that said, this component is very solid and has the potential to be great with just a few enhancements, like bounce support and a graceful restart feature.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review!

Happy to hear that our focus on user experience is allowing your less experienced users to send e-mail newsletters!

I'll get in touch about the changes you made to ccNewsletter and see whether we can implement them as default, improving the extension for all users.

The installation and configuration of this extension is so easy, and the results are really powerful. Support is also great! I had an issue regarding functionality and they help me really fast (excellent support).

A good job!

I have been using a number of different newsletter options. I do a lot of online PR and SEO work so they come in handy. I found this component to be user friendly, well programmed and it does cater perfectly to the needs for a good newsletter service. It allows recipient groups, easy management and with a little effort you can work with your servers restrictions. If you are not planning on using already planned newsletter services this is a good component.
