  2. Hi, i triesd touse this plugin,but not working,no mails are sent

  3. Downloaded Sendpress. Can’t upload pics, etc. Seems like a great concept but certainly doesn’t work for me ! Very frustrated. Is there any support for this product ?

  4. We just launched CircuPress to send email – using WordPress templating and an external infrastructure for sending the email (you shouldn’t send it from your host). We’re new and fine-tuning the UI based on feedback but we’re growing like crazy. Hope you check us out and we can make your next post!
