Do I understand it correctly : you have to send mails via the server of e3 Software? No thank you.

Hi Shooters,

No, you do not have to use e3 Delivery Service. You can also configure Direct Mail to send email using your own SMTP server.

Thanks, Jonathan

Purchased this app a while ago when it was not yet free to use as it is now. Was really impressed with the features and being able to use my smtp server was a necessity.
Too bad they chose to make it free with the restriction of only using their servers to send 50 mails a month, can't use another smtp server without a monthly paid subscription.
Great mailing app for anyone having the budget and the will to subscribe or a 50 list/month need, though.

Hi Akanico,

You are still able to use your own SMTP server to send email if you like. No one is required to sign up for a monthly plan.

Thanks, Jonathan

Now the list is growing into 6 digits and DirectMail still works perfectly. I updatet to 3.0.3 today and so far the mailings are all out.

Great work!

I manage my subscribers with direct mail, and I am interested in buying it once, but my official future basic Direct Mail? $ 99.00 USD, is, which manages the SMTP server itself, when you want to send a single message to 20,000 subscribers, would be effective?

In comparison to other programs, it seems intuitive, but I will not submit to pay for sending messages, I get a list of 100,000 subscribers in the future, I recommend looking Direct Mail or other alternatives for a single payment?

I would like to know too, that many people have come up with Direct Mail to the server itself?

Family thank you very much,

This is a great software, probable one of the best. It's missing some futures which can make it hands down champ however this has to be seen.

As far as tech support that is what make every product a SUPER PRODUCT ... here Direct Mail is stumbling, BIG TIME ...

I'm afraid this probably isn't going to be of much use if you're wanting to find out how good the software is - it's good, but I'm not here to comment on that. What I am here for is the hope that the developer reads this soon!

The software comes with the e3 delivery service which is very good, until of course, it doesn't work! I have an important (aren't they all) job to send for a client via e3, and yet I can't connect to it. I've sent a couple of emails over the last few hours with no response. There's no telephone number to ring and no status update. I'm up s**t creak with nowhere else to turn but somebody else's software - which is going to cost more money, but I have to keep the clients happy, and they don't give a damn about what problems I have, just that there job goes out on time.

So, e3 if your reading this, PLEASE get the system back on line or let me know when it will be. Your software IS good, but the e3 delivery service is next to bloody useless to me if it isn't reliable enough to be there when I need it (especially when I've paid for the email credits in advance!).

Update: 6 months later and it would appear that the above occasion, as far as I'm aware, was the one and only time that the e3 service wasn't working. Other than this slight 'hiccup' I can't really fault the software.

I recently purchased DM Pro after evaluating several other options out there. It had the best combination of flexibility and ease-of-use out of the 3 or 4 other options I tested.

Setup was just about as easy as it gets. It pulled all of my email account information from Mail, so all of the important info was already set up.

As another user here mentioned, I too had some initial difficulty linking with mysql databases on my site, but turning on remote access to said databases via cPanel fixed the issue (imagine that).

While preflighting my first mailer, I ran into one glitch in the import from web feature-mailtos were getting borked. I was in the process of testing a workaround (manually pasting the html instead of importing it...which worked fine, btw) when I got a software update notice from DM. A quick download and the problem disappeared. Fixed before I could even complain. Not bad.

In the end, I sent out a multi-thousand quantity mailer from a few different databases, spread over the course of several hours (automatically dealing with the hourly email limit from my hosting provider) with minimum difficulty. It processed my one unsubscribe and several bounces with ease.

Since I never actually needed to contact support, I can't say whether it's gotten any "better" or not. The only "bug" I found was fixed before I could report it. The online documentation fully answered any questions I had about the actual software and the knowledge base for my hosting service helped answer the rest.

It was a bit expensive compared to other solutions, but personally I think it was well worth it. I didn't give it 5 stars because I rated it based on my notion "perfect," which it's not, but it's very very close.

manutx had trouble on 29 Aug 2009
I upgraded to MacOS 10.6 on Friday, August 29th. All of my Direct Mail files will NOT open in versions 1.8.3 or 2.2.1.

Is anyone else having this same issue?

Regards,

Mudflapper had trouble on 11 May 2007
For some reason the Delivery Restrictions settings aren't working any more. I can't send more than 20 messages at a time thru smtp so I have it set to wait 2 minutes between each group of 20. It used to work fine. Now it just goes right past 20 and tries to send them all, resulting in hundreds of failed messages.

I deleted the plist file but that didn't help.

Any ideas?

Ah, think I figured it out. There seems to be a bug of some sort related to the check-for-dupes-before-sending feature. When that is turned on, the smtp send delay seems to be ignored. When it's turned off, it works perfectly.

I'll report this to the developer.
