Screenshot of list management feature


Manage millions of subscribers across many single and double opt-in lists with custom JSON attributes for each subscriber. Segment subscribers with SQL expressions.

Use the super fast bulk importer or use HTTP/JSON APIs or interact with the simple table schema to integrate external CRMs and subscriber databases.

Screenshot of Messenger feature


More than just e-mail campaigns. Connect messenger web services and send SMS, Whatsapp, FCM notifications, or any arbitrary message campaigns.

Screenshot of templating feature


Create powerful, dynamic e-mail templates with the Go templating language. Use template expressions and logic in subject lines and content. Write HTML e-mails with a WYSIWYG editor, Markdown, raw syntax-highlighted HTML, or just plain text.

Screenshot of performance features


Highly configurable multi-threaded, high throughput multi-SMTP e-mail queues for super fast campaign delivery. Throughput and sliding window rate limiting for fine grained speed controls. Single binary application with nominal CPU and memory footprint that runs everywhere. The only dependency is a Postgres database.

Use the media manager to upload and link images in e-mail campaigns on the server's filesystem or S3. WebDav support coming soon.
