I wrote a blog post a while back now on a free tool called MailPoet. (Back then it was called WYSIJA).
Basically what it is, is a WordPress plugin that allows you to send emails from within your WordPress dashboard and be able to do it completely free of charge. (When using your Gmail account) or a small fee to integrate it with an email delivery service like Elastic Email.
Now, this week I received an email from MailPoet announcing version 3 of the plugin, so I thought it would be a good time to update you all on it if you have been considering scrapping your autoresponder subscription.
PS: Forgot to mention as of writing this – MailPoet has over 300 000 active installs.
