Mailing lists

Screenshot of list management feature

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

Use the super fast bulk importer (10k records per second) or use HTTP/JSON APIs or interact with the simple table schema to integrate external CRMs and subscriber databases.


Screenshot of analytics feature

Visualize and compare campaign performance. Connect external visualization programs to the database easily with the simple table structure.


Screenshot of templating feature

Create powerful, dynamic e-mail templates with the Go templating language. Use template expressions, logic, and 100+ functions in subject lines and content. Write HTML e-mails in a WYSIWYG editor, Markdown, raw syntax-highlighted HTML, or just plain text.

A production listmonk instance sending a campaign of 7+ million e-mails.
CPU usage is a fraction of a single core with peak RAM usage of 57 MB.

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 (⩾ v9.4) database.


Screenshot of media feature

Use the media manager to upload images for e-mail campaigns on the server's filesystem, Amazon S3, or any S3 compatible (Minio) backend.


Screenshot of Messenger feature

More than just e-mail campaigns. Connect messenger web services and send SMS, Whatsapp, FCM notifications, or any type of arbitrary messages with simple webhooks.


Screenshot of privacy features
