"Easy and Powerful With Learning Curve"

 |  Version: MailList Controller 12.3

Pros

The free version is free contrary to what the negative reviews say. I would add that it possibly should be called a free demo. Yes, a limit of 50 email addresses is small, but the purpose is for the user to try out the software. The features are exactly the same as the paid version. Filtering before sending email allows the user to select part(s) of a mail list, offsetting the limitation of only one mail list for the free and cheapest paid versions. I've found that filtering works fine.

I feel that many of the negative reviews are from users/testers who want everything for free. The basic paid version for about U.S.$50 allows the user to have a mail list of 500 email addresses. This is a reasonable price for what the software accomplishes.

I love that the responsive templates allow the users to send out newsletters that are formatted beautifully on mobile devices such as smartphones or any devices that recipients read the newsletters on.

Cons

To use the full power of MailList Controller, the user ideally should learn HTML. I've found that learning how to insert links to images online has been most helpful. This way, I don't send out email with embedded images that clog up the recipients mailbox. Other than that, although I do know some HTML, I haven't found it necessary with the included templates, to learn a lot of HTML.

Summary

I would take the negative reviews with a grain of salt. A lot of whining by people who are too cheap to spend $50. The free version is excellent for testing the software. There are no time limitations and there are no features crippled. The only limitation is that of 50 recipients for the address list. Practically, this is not useful other than being used as a demo to see if you like the product. So what. Try it out and if you find it valuable, spend the money. If, though, you want everything for free, then look elsewhere. And please do post something about a better product that is available for free or at a comparable cost.
