Automatic backup creation

Automatic backup creation

Added: “To email” field in the “Send Test Email” window that allows to send a test message to one or several email addresses separated by commas or semicolons.

Important! When you send a test email using the “To email” field:

1. the Global Exclusion List does not work (if the email address is on the Global Exclusion List, the test message will still be sent to that email);

2. group merge tags in the email do not work. Only the merge tags from the Workplace Settings such as the unsubscribe link and social links work.

Send test email to one or several addresses

Added: ability to check the email spam score. We built in the SpamAssassin filter that uses a diverse range of tests to identify spam. The filter analyzes the email header and body to determine its spam score. So, you can check your email spam score before sending it to the group to ensure it will pass through anti-spam filters at the recipient’s end.

If your score is less than 5.0, it is OK to send the email. If the spam score is more than 5.0, make the corrections according to the spam test report to avoid deliverability problems. The common reasons for a high spam score are: too many images and few text, embedded images, spam trigger words (viagra, etc.), mismatch of the message Subject in the header and HTML source, links from blacklisted domains.

Check email spam score

Added: G-Lock Analytics email tracking statistics overview to the program. If you use G-Lock Analytics to track your email campaigns, now you can see the statistics overview right inside G-Lock EasyMail7. Just click on "Click to View Stats" link for the message in the Outbox or Autoresponders.

The Overview shows the open rate and click rate, the number of opens, clicks, forwards, and unsubscribes. Plus, you can quickly see how many recipients read, glanced and skimmed your email.

First public release

How G-Lock EasyMail7 Differs from Older Versions

G-Lock EasyMail7 is the great leap forward in email marketing applications for Windows and it’s far ahead of older versions of G-Lock EasyMail and it’s outdated competitors. G-Lock EasyMail7 is designed to help you stay in touch with your clients, prospects and subscribers in a more convenient and easy way, and eliminate the complexity and expense of operating a third-party email service.

If you are a customer of G-Lock EasyMail v6, check the below list of new features that differ G-Lock EasyMail7 from old versions:

– G-Lock EasyMail7 is built on client-server model and includes two components: EasyMail7 Server and EasyMail7 Client. The EasyMail7 Server can be installed on a local computer or a Windows Server 2008/2012, Amazon EC2 or Windows Azure Virtual Machine where you can deploy your own customized Windows Server. It runs as a service in the background and does most of the work: send out messages, check for incoming returned messages and update the contact lists. The EasyMail7 Client can be installed on as many computers as you want which means you can access your data on the EasyMail7 Server from Client and send email campaigns from anywhere.

Ability to create multiple users and workplaces. A workplace includes email server accounts, email templates and drafts, sent items, contact groups (internal and external lists), and Bounce Handler settings. If the license allows, admin can create many users and workplaces. Users login to the EasyMail7 Server from their computers and manage email lists and campaigns. Each user has the full control under his own workplace(s) allocated to him by admin. The program even allows multiple users to work within the same workplace simultaneously.

Each user has the full control under his own workplace(s)

Sending to multiple groups at a time. The program automatically skips duplicate email addresses between groups.

Easy group creation and import of contacts without Import Wizard. If your contacts are stored in the MS Access, MS Excel 97-2003, MS Excel 2007-2013, CSV Text file, MySQL or MS SQL server database, G-Lock EasyMail7 allows you to quickly create a group directly from the file/database without using the Import Wizard. It takes just a few mouse clicks.

Integration with Google Analytics and Piwik Analytics to track the recipient's actions on your website. You can find out how many customers you're attracting, how your recipients are engaging with your site, and how much revenue they generate.

Customizable unsubscribe link. G-Lock EasyMail7 provides you a ready to use unsubscribe link that you can merge into the message. You can customize the unsubscribe link as you like and even have different unsubscribe links for different groups.

Bulk subscribe/unsubscribe capability. You can subscribe and unsubscribe recipients in bulk in one or all groups by loading email addresses from a file.

New Bounce Handler that can automatically unsubscribe or delete bounce email addresses from internal groups, update external databases and delete bounce emails from external databases.

Built-In FTP client. You can upload pictures used in your message to your web server directly from G-Lock EasyMail7. The program will then automatically replace local paths of the images in the message with the paths on the web. This helps you decrease your message size, increase the sending speed and ensure the pictures will be displayed correctly within the message. Plus, you save your money if you send using a 3rd party service for example Amazon SES where they charge you for data transfer.

Built-in store of professionally designed HTML email templates including responsive templates. You can download the templates from the store and use them for your email newsletters. You can customize the templates as you like. Use the newsletter templates that come with G-Lock EasyMail7 to share how-tos, tips, and news of interest with customers.

RESTful API. Using RESTful API you can integrate G-Lock EasyMail7 into your business process. For example, we have a web client developed with the use of RESTful API.

Unlimited features in ANY paid version. The license price depends on the number of users and workplaces you can have within G-Lock EasyMail7. There are no limitations in features for paid licenses. We do not try to upsell you to more expensive licenses so you can access specific features. We simply charge a fixed price per user/workplace.You can be assured that whatever size of business you are and whatever paid license you have, you will always have access to all G-Lock EasyMail7 features.
