WordPress Business Themes › Forums › General Discussion › Mass Emailer- NEED HELP!
Man, I need a mass-emailer. I downloaded Send Blaster but not sure how to use it.
Can you guys tell me what exactly is a “smtp” and how do I fill in the information in the box to send an email. Attached is a picture.
I’m sure it is straight accross the board with all other emailers- so, help me out here.
Also, if there is a WordPress plugin that can do the same thing then help me with that as well. I installed E-Mail Broadcasting, but the mails are not going anywhere after the first 1000 or so. I know, because on my mailing list, in order, my other emails are on the same list- and the emails are not going to my mailbox.
Any help would be appreciated!
I would strongly recommend to NOT use your own site/server for mass mailing as you are risking to get your server blacklisted. Also many hosting providers impose a daily limit on how many emails could be sent.
Try using services such as MailChimp, Constant Contact or Aweber.

thanks for sharing Richard
I love spam ( monty python )
If they are all your members and you have a dedi you could use mailman mailing list no problem.
If not your members and you were on my servers I would shut you down. 😎
I tried it once and bluehost came to me and told me to stop… lololol… man, what’s an email marketer to do?
But thanks Richard. And, what I will do, is use email accounts like hotmail or gmail to mass email. That would be a better thing!
you should use awber
Mark, any plan to integrate DirectoryPress with the email services?
the new responsive framework as an email subscription system built in, its basic but does the job.

I personally use MailChimp – it is free for up to 2000 contacts and has easy integration with WordPress – and works with PremiumPress themes.
Thanks Mark, but I was wondering about more than just an opt-in widget…My thought was more along the lines of an integration with our “users” (listing businesses)…for easier email broadcasts & tracking of clicks, etc. for ongoing marketing/upsell efforts.
Joseph, mailchimp can be integrated with the ‘users’ (all the paying or subscribing customers on your site) and has many other features. Just give it a try, it does not cost you anything.
Submit your feature requests to our ideas board and it could be included in a future theme update.
