I currently am using the Subscriber2 plugin to send email notifications to subscribers of new blog posts, but that plugin has not been working properly for a while on my site.

Can someone suggest some alternative plugins.

I only need the following... - sends emails with part of the post to subscribers on a mailing list - sidebar widget so new subscribers can enter their email address to sign up - import feature so I can take emails and import them into this new system

Have you thought about using feedburner? I'm using feedburner to handle subscribers. And it emails subscribers once a new post is made.

You should be able to import your subscribers by emailing the csv file to [email protected] and informing support that you are moving to use Feedburner.

  • Although feedburner still works, i will advice you use the RSS to email feature of your email service provider such as MailChimp or use any of the new post notification plugin to send email to your users when you publish a new post.

I highly recommend MailChimp. There's an RSS to Email Campaign that is nice and customizable. Free up to 2000 subscribers. The RSS URL is example.com/feed/

And MailChimp has subscription plugins, of course.


I want to 2nd using Feedburner. I use it for our email subscriptions and it's been great. You get stats of how many people are clicking through, the daily interaction numbers, etc. Have you tried Feedburner?
