myMail Moved

We recently finished moving myMail to keep up with increased usage and interest and it got me thinking. We have been getting a lot of questions recently about it, and many are along the lines of “How is myMail different than (insert name of Joomla/Mambo newsletter component here)”?

The core features are all the same: you can collect email addresses; you can create templates for your newsletters; they follow CAN-SPAM rules for opt-in and opt-out; they send emails. That’s about where the features of most newsletter components stop. In addition to that myMail features:

  • Custom fields for newsletter targeting
  • Comprehensive statistics including number of emails opened, links clicked (including the email addresses that opened/clicked)
  • Scheduled sending
  • Increased capacity (shared accounts aren’t suited to large lists, myMail can easily handle lists with thousands of subscribers)

If you run a newsletter that features advertising, you can easily charge more to advertisers by allowing them to specify a target demographic and you can send their ad to only that demographic. Most newsletter experts seem to agree that sending your newsletter at the same time each day/week/month is the way to get the best response, with scheduled sending in myMail that is very easy.

We have a link to our myMail demo at While you are there you can also view a complete list of features myMail offers.
