Where is the download, upgrade link for those of us who bought unlimited upgrades before there was an Apple App Store?

Indeed. There is no download link on their website that allows paid users to get the update necessary to make the application work under Mavericks. I've also contacted the Dev via their online support form a few days ago, and have heard nothing back.

My guess is the previously paid users have been abandoned by the Dev in favour of the MAS, and if we want to get the app working again under the current Mac OS X, we are being held hostage to buy it again through MAS. I think not. Very poor show on the part of Limit-Point. I'm happy to be proven wrong.

Hdms - That is exactly what has happened. It seems to me that the developer made the decision to move to the app store. And rather than deal straight with people who had previously bought the unlimited upgrades with an explanation why they would not longer be honored, we were simply abandoned. Some of us were in the middle of projects that needed support. And am I wrong to assume that there is a connection between the smpt mailer suddenly not working, rendering non-AppStore versions worthless and the move to the AppStore. It seems to me a reasonable assumption that the previous version may have been intentionally broken to force users to purchase again on the AppStore. Prospective purchasers of this software should look for alternatives. Support does not answer numerous emails. Limit-Point unfairly and without notice or explanation terminated those who purchased unlimited upgrades and may have sabotaged it's own software to force users to purchase the software again from the AppStore. In fact I bit the bullet and did purchase it again from the AppStore. And guess what the smpt mailer now works. I have used Mailings for years and it is in my work flow and I'll continue to use it. But I cannot recommend this company to new, prospective users. There are alternatives. You should try them first. Limit-Point is at least poorly run. Worse, it is unethical.

Since upgrading to 10.9 Maverick I can't get Mails to work, I've also contacted the the maker and no reply. Anyone else having problems. Can't even send myself a preview. Seems to be the mail settings.

I have the same problem. Since Mavericks this very nice app does not work anymore and nobody seems home at the developers. A message that they are working on it would be nice.

Karl: It looks like he updated it at the Apple Store to 2.0.11 but It still doesn't work. I tried SerialMailer but it's not as good; slow at sending out emails.

@netalexpg: I have 2.0.11 and indeed, it does not work either. I switched to Direct Mail which is really awesome, but more expensive.

It's a bit pricey Karl when you have 15,000 recipients.

I'm having the same problem in Mavericks. I just downloaded SerialMailer and it seems to work fine in Mavericks. Not as full featured in terms of server settings but it does some things Mailings doesn't that I think will make it even better for me.

The negative points for Serial Mailer for me is speed; it sends out much slower then Mailings and also slows down when the screensaver is up.

I've liked Mailings and used it for years. I last used it successfully in March. Tried it yesterday. It doesn't work. The only difference from Marsh is a new rMBP and Mavericks.

Testing the port assigned by my web host (which works fine with Apple Mail), I get an error message "smpt.xxxxxx.xxxx This server did not accept a connection on port XXXX." Mailings produces an error message "No available error message. (Error code = 1634955892)"

I have methodically tried adjusting all the settings. No success. Finally, I sent an email to the support link at the developer: joe@limit-point.com. No response.

I suggest prospective purchasers wait until things clear up. This isn't a negative review of the application. When it works, I like it a lot.

Oh, one other thing I failed to mention is that I did update to the current 2.0.12 version before having the difficulty. So this latest version posting by MacUpdate doesn't solve the problem.

He does have a newer version in the Apple store 2.0.13, but do you have to repurchase it? His old site is redone with only the App store apps.

Markh, I've sent an e-mail to the developer (at a different e-mail address) to alert him/them to your inability to contact support. Of course, we may get the same error message you got, but hopefully we'll get someone to take care of you problem.

Joe emailed me my password the next day, Jess. He had been ill. I love the program -- powerful and fast. Has a bit of a learning curve, but his Help files are fantastic. How do I upgrade the number of stars in my original review?

The app is potentially great, although I am currently having a problem with it.

Contrarily to some reviewers, I have found customer service TOTALLY UNRESPONSIVE.

Is it possible to Bcc recipients? I've thoroughly checked the interface and documentation but couldn't find any way of doing it.

I'll post a full review later, but have to say that Joe's support is great, and the software gets continuously updated without asking for an upgrade fee. I have other bulk mailers and stopped using them due to the constant upgrade fees.
I look forward to trying the added feature allowing the use of GMail.

I apologize for the double post, but I kept getting error messages while posting. The double-post occurred probably when I clicked reload. Sorry.

The good news: this software still works on Snow Leopard.
The bad news: "The requested resource / is no longer available on this server and there is no forwarding address. Please remove all references to this resource."
Don't you just hate it when you pay for something that evaporates without a trace (and without an explanation, or support)?

Excellent software, easy to configure and implement. Every update makes it a better choice. THE best bulk mailer for the Mac.

I just happened to notice that a Daylite plugin is now included and I thought other Daylite users might like to know.

I really appreciate this since I no longer have to go through contortions to get matching groups in address book. Now I can just select some contacts in Daylite and send them to Mailings.

I always was very pleased with the app. It did exactly what I bought it for: a personalized weekly newsmail to ca 500 people. Bit since the upgrade to OSX.09, my mailservers keep rejecting every communication with Mailings. When I try tot contact Support, nobody answers. Bad show!
