I have been looking for a reliable way to send an mail to people that have signed up to receive notifications of a new Post.
I started using MailPoet for one person and I am now using this myself.
Install the plugin.
Once you have the plugin installed, let’s set it up.
Go to Subscriptions, and Add New and put yourself in, this is what we will be using to test that emails are working.
Go to Lists, and create a new List. And put your self in that List.
Go to Settings, setup Default sender. Contact us if you need help.
Go to Emails, and set up a Post Notifications.
You need to create a Notification Email. This will be sent to a particulate list when you create a new Post.
When you go to Post Notification, start setup and use Immediately.
Choose a look and feel.
Having set up MailPoet I still could not send emails. Digging a bit further I have this issue with my settings.
I had a Key in there already.
Clicking on Activate MailPoet Sending Service, fixed my issue.
