Unlike other extensions which send emails as soon as the emails created, Mailer Pro store(queue) created emails in database and each time it only send a small number of emails (configurable - for example 50 emails each time). By doing that, you don't have to worry about mail server limitation anymore( Usually, Mail Server only allows sending about 150 emails per hours, and if you try to send more emails, these emails won't be delivered).
Each time you want to send emails to users, you will need to create a Email Campaign. When you create a new campaign, you need to enter folliowing informations:
Some important notes:
You can go to Mailer Pro -> Emails to see list of of generated emails. From that page, you can see which emails are sent, which emails are pending, which emails are failed .... You can also edit the email subject, email message, delete, publish, unpublish an email..
As mentioned before, all the generated emails will be stored in database and will be sent from time to time by a System Plugin comes with the extension (of course you can also setup cron job to trigger sending emails). Go to Extensions -> Plugins manager, find and publish the System-Mailer Pro plugin to start sending emails. Each time the plguin is run (you can setup it to run every X-minutes), it will send certain number of emails from queu (for example, 50 emails each time) until the email queue are emptied.
Mailer Pro support content plugins, so you can use any Joomla content plugins in the email messages sent to users. For example, you can write a plugin to display new virtuemart products and use that plugin to notify your customers about your new products...
