The plugin has an option to send a Autoresponder Campaign after X minutes.

You can set it to do so when a user 'signs up'.

Apparently, this only works if the user confirms their email in time.

Meaning, if you want to send an email right away with double optin enabled.... forget about it.

I tried to have emails sent within 1 minute of them signing up, but it doesn't work because it takes more than 1 minute for the user to receive and confirm the email.

Long story short, change this or create another condition where it's based on sending campaigns after they confirm their email.

Great product. Easily capable of replacing some of the better know products out there.
The documentation is a mixed bag. Some items are really welcome (guides to modifications, code snippets etc) but in may cases the 'doc' is just a copy of the UI screen with no further explanation as to what something means. (Author hint: If I can't work out what something means and I look at the online docs then restating what's in the UI is not good enough... here is your opp to make a really good impression at near zero effort for you).
Some of the settings are not 'intuitive' (and docs are no help) but once it's explained by their support you can usually accept it and just say: OK, I understand now.
As to their support: I found it great. I installed and had a dozen items that needed explaining in some way or another. I raised tickets and got help straight away. Helpful and happy to explain and to check into issues quickly.
Because it's inside WP, targeting and list management is very good. Wish they would allow targeting based on 'other data eg Woo sales transactions' though.
Early days... but happy to get that expensive monkey off my shoulder.

Probably the best newsletter plugin if you are on a budget and don't need too many features. It does its job perfectly for a fraction of the cost of other newsletter plugins, since you pay it just once.

I have been involved in email marketing for the last 20-years, including sending millions of emails out for Microsoft at one point. If you use Wordpress and any type of membership, Mailster is perfect. It turns Wordpress into a light CRM for a fraction of the price.

This plugin does wonders, the only feature missing here is the possibility of sending plain text newsletter, feature that shouldn't be forgotten!

Hope you're considering to put some non html feature in it, then I would change my rating into a 5 star!

It's great plugin. It's have all what you need to run your own email newsletter plan. Thanks.

Features are great ! and continuing to improve. Unfortunately the developer documentation is limited and would significantly benefit Mailster with structured organization AND the addition of fully described methods, filters, actions -- some of the hidden gems of this product, which are mostly missing.

Clear description and example uses of these features would dramatically enhance the product utility and considerably shorten implementation time.

I bought the plugin just a few hours ago and I have a technical question from the author. I also paid for the support. However, after several tries and twice in changing of password I still can't get in to the members area for support. I hope this will be read by anyone from EverPress and provide me info on how I can login to the support area. Thank you.
