Hi,

as per the product page: "EmailBuddy is currently only available for purchase with the PluginBuddy Developer Suite, which includes BackupBuddy (our hottest plugin), Mobile, Billboard and Rotating Images and more to come."

I am not sure what you mean by "gather followers emails". You can collect e-mail addresses, and Emailbuddy will allow you to send e-mails to to addresses, that is primarily the functionality. But perhaps I misunderstand your question,

Ronald

In what ways does e-mail buddy accommodate the collection of e-mails? If I already have a list on aweber, can I transfer it to email buddy? Can I create a subscription box for my website? Will the subscriber be sent to a confirmation page so they know their request went through? Are there autoresponder capabilities or is it simply an e-mail broadcast system? Is there a limit as to how many emails you can send at once without fear of being blacklisted as a spammer? Or is there SMTP capability or CRON jobs to spread out the email blast?

Also, I would like to purchase BackupBuddy and EmailBuddy but I already have Mobile, Billboarad and Rotating Images from the Foundation Pack I just bought. Is there any way for me to upgrade to just  these two plugins instead of buying the entire Developer Suite?

Thank you for your patience with my many questions!

Rebecca

Hi Rebecca,

I've got some answers for you:
  • In what ways does EmailBuddy accomodate the collection of emails?  You can import emails into EmailBuddy or users can sign up on your site.  (I hope that answers your question, not sure I 100% know what you're asking.  If that doesn't answer your question, let me know and I'll try again! :) )
  • If I already have a list on aweber, can I transfer it to EmailBuddy?  You can import plain text files into EmailBuddy, so if you can export your users from aweber into a plain text file, you can easily import them into EmailBuddy.
  • Can I create a subscription box for my website?  Yes
  • Will the subscriber be sent to a confirmation page so they know their request went through?  No, but they do have to verify their email address, so they will get an email asking them to confirm.  You can also enable Double-Opt-In.  
  • Are there autoresponder capabilities or is it simply an email broadcast system?  It is simply an email broadcast system.
  • Is there a limit as to how many emails you can send at once without fear of being blacklisted as a spammer?  Or is there SMTP capability or CRON jobs to spread out the email blast?  EmailBuddy sends out 50 emails every 1 minute in order to keep from being blacklisted as a spammer.  You can adjust the number of emails that are sent out each time and how long between each under settings in EmailBuddy.
  • Is there any way to upgrade to just these two plugins instead of buying the entire Developer Suite? This one I'm going to have to discuss with sales.  As soon as I find out the answer, I'll post here again.
Hopefully, I've answered all of your questions sufficiently.  If this doesn't answer all your questions, I'd be happy to answer any others you have!

Thanks,

Elise

Hi Rebecca,

I spoke with sales and they said just to contact them (sales@ithemes.com) and they'd best be able to discuss that with you.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

Elise

How does email buddy send mail - Does it use the standard wp_mail(). If not can it - I want to try and use WP better since WP Better Emails wraps every "plain/text" email sent with the WordPress functionwp_mail(). - I'm sure that is far fetched but I was just wondering - sorry I should post this in a new topic : ) but i get overlooked so often?

Hi nathansimpson,

EmailBuddy does use wp_mail.  

Also, the forums are manned from 8-5 Central time Monday - Friday.  I noticed your most recent posts were yesterday (Sunday) and early this morning.  So you're not being overlooked.  Please just give us time to respond to your posts.  

Thanks,

Elise

My cron job to email in intervals isn't working. I have to go to the tools page that displays how many emails are in que and hit refresh for the emails to get sent. Do I need to turn on a cron job feature in my cpanel?  I have noticed a couple other plugins that also don't work for cron jobs....
