BwPostman is a complete and extensive newsletter extension for Joomla!® 3.3.6. Versions of BwPostman prior to 1.1.0 also work with Joomla!® 2.5.16.
BwPostman main features:
- You can compose the content of the newsletter with free text and articles that are already written in Joomla!®.
- The newsletters can be personalized.
- In BwPostman you can create as many mailing lists as you want and so you can get different mailing lists for every thinkable constellation of recipients (guests, registered users, issue...).
- BwPostman always generates the newsletter in HTML and in text format.
- Extensive template system for easily adjusting the appearance of newsletters. Provided templates may be copied and adjusted or you can create completely free templates for the newsletters (very big thanks to Karl Klostermann!).
- The campaign manager in BwPostman enables you to combine newsletters to a campaign that belongs together.
- You can import subscribers from a CSV- or XML-file. So you can i.e. export the address book from a mail program and import it in BwPostman. Export of subscribers is also possible.
- You can archive subscribers, newsletters, mailing lists, campaigns and templates and restore it from the archive.
- A special property is the possibility to adjust, how many mails will be sent at once.

- Detailed manual, further help at forum.
The download of the whole package includes the basic component and also a module for registration for the front-end to the newsletter system. The overall package has to be unzipped first. Then the single parts of BwPostman can be installed as usual by the installer of Joomla!®.
The manual is arranged in such a way, that you are able to learn the use of BwPostman step by step and you are able to create your first newsletter as soon as possible. For that reason I suggest to practise the use of BwPostman parallel to reading the manual.
