Send Emails directly from your Server
What is Mail It?
Mail It is a WordPress plugin to send emails directly from your (self-hosted) server without needing any Email Service Provider or SMTP relay.
However, if you prefer, you can use a SMTP relay such as Amazon SES, MailJet, SendGrid etc.
Main advantage of these SMTP relay services is that they can handle huge lists, send out bulk emails without any problem and are (often) cheaper than regular ESP/Autoresponders (you’ll pay a small amount per send email instead of a fixed monthly fee based upon the number of subsribers).
What’s so special about Mail It?
Firstly, it allows you to send broadcast and autoresponder emails directly from within your WP blog. You won’t need any other service.
With Mail It, you don’t need a SMTP relay and hence you won’t pay for SMTP services and can use your own server to send out emails.
Secondly, in theory, you can send unlimited emails, get unlimited subscribers subscribed to as many email lists as you want.
And that all for a small one-time payment ($47.00)!
You won’t have to pay monthly fees for your ESP anymore (and/or extra payments for your SMTP relay service).
Other main features of Mail It:
- Easily import all your existing email lists (from other ESPs) without confirmation and/or restrictions. Plus invalid emails are automatically filtered out!
- Unlimited subscribers and unlimited email lists.
- Unlimited emails and unlimited autoresponder series.
- Easy WYSIWYG Editor or HTML editor to create your emails.
- Full stats: showing opens, clicks, spam complaints, unsubscribes and bounces.
- Feature to copy emails in one click.
- Feature to resend email to those who did not open.
- Feature to clean and remove inactive subscribers.
- Throttling feature to set maximum number of outgoing emails per hour to stay within hosting provider limits.
- Mail It is SPF – DKIM, and Can SPAM compliant (with one-click unsubscribe feature).
- Inside the plugin: step-by-step video tutorials.
- Inside the members area: deliverability tips training.
- Reliable and trustworthy support by Brett Rutecky himself.
And of course, you can add new subscribers manually or by using the built-in HTML opt-in form creator that you can embed anywhere you want.
And yes, these optin forms can be used with the major page builders as WP Profit Builder, Optimize Press, Thrive Leads and more. Or use it with Brett’s (the creator/seller) Profit Canvas page builder.
(If the page builder allows HTML opt-in forms, you can use Mail It. But check it out with your own solution, because some Page Builders only use APIs with the major Autoresponders)
Watch below to see why Brett made this new plugin:
- No email import restrictions. No more blocked emails or unnecessary double opt-in procedures.
- No email sending restrictions. Send as many emails, as often, and with the content you want.
- No IP Address restrictions. With Mail It other spammers sending emails from the same IP address (that your ESP is using) won’t hurt your delivery rates anymore.
Are there any shortcomings?
There can be restrictions with respect to the number of emails you’re allowed to send daily or hourly set by your hosting provider. Especially if your WordPress blog is running on (cheap) shared hosting, there will be definitely restrictions.
Luckily Mail It comes with built-in throttling feature. Where you can set the maximum number of outgoing emails per hour to stay within hosting provider limits.
However, if you have a large email list and/or send many emails, sooner or later you probably will need your own dedicated server or VPS (or at least a shared service with less restrictions). Alternatively, of course, you can use a SMTP relay service. (But hey, if you’re having a big list, you probably have significant website traffic, and hence you need a professional server anyway)
Also, you can’t just start with a big email list. You first have to ‘warm up’ your email sending. I mean, don’t send thousands of emails on the first day. Start with 100, then 500, then 1000, then 2000 etc. over a period of a few weeks. Of course, watch your results and check your delivery and open rates during this process.
(Note: Brett explains how to warm up our email sending in his deliverability tips videos)
Furthermore, the email editor is a basic one. You can create any HTML email you want (or just use the WYSIWYG editor), but you won’t find email templates.
Same can be said about the HTML opt-in form creator. You can create simple opt-in forms. But for the more advanced and better-looking forms, you probably want to integrate with your favorite Page Builder (check out if your page builder only uses APIs with the major Autoresponders or that you also can use HTML opt-in forms).
Finally, you can only schedule your Autoresponder messages in advance. There is no scheduler for broadcast emails. You have to actually click on the “send now” button a the moment you want your emails to go out.
Overall, I really like this simple solution. You can save huge amounts of monthly fees and take control back over your email marketing.
Why should you buy Mail It?
Mail It is the simplest and cheapest solution on the market right now to send emails to your subscribers directly from inside your WordPress blog without paying any extra fees for your ESP/Autoresponder and/or SMTP relay services.
With Mail It, you can send unlimited (broadcast or Autoresponder) emails to an unlimited number of subscribers at any time and as often as you want without any restrictions that major ESPs seem to have.
Hence, a great plugin and must have tool for any serious Email Marketer. Even if you’re only going to use it as a backup opportunity in case your Autoresponder can’t be reached or doesn’t work temporarily (or even worse if they “closed your account” without warning).
You can buy the Mail It – Personal Usage License for a one-time payment of just $47.00.
(You can use the personal usage only license on unlimited WordPress sites you own)
The offer has a 14 days no questions money back guarantee period.
Upsells and OTOs
Only during the special 3-day launch (ended August 21, 2016), there was an option to buy the Resell Rights to sell Mail It (closed now).
I bought this license myself and now you’ll actually buy Mail It from me directly. However, you still get the same product with all features and support from Brett himself. And, of course, all my special bonuses.
Hence, there are no upsells anymore.
Note: Brett increased the official sales price to $67.00 (as you can see on this page) and allows his resellers to sell Mail It for a minimum price of $47.00. The price I use myself.
