The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™


byBunzer, January 8, 2013
I was looking for a Joomla newsletter extention which could be operated by front-end or email, as it needed to be used by luddites. This fits the bill very well, as the content can be provided by email, and subscription can be handled by recipients as well as in the back-end.
Installation was fairly easy, although I found the server options a bit over-complicated, and it worked first time. It took a while to find all the appropriate settings, but the process was fairly painless.
I can see one major problem--the lack of full integration with the Joomla user list. Subscription seems to default to the user's registered email, but this can be changed at subscription time. If the user subsequently changes email address, this does not update Mailster's address, and they get out of sync. Finally, removing a user does not remove it from the mailing list.
Otherwise, this is a very good extension, and I would recommend it for simplicity of operation.
