Very good in general and can improve

Reviewed 6 years ago

I have been using this service, In general is very friendly but is lacking some services that I used with other companies that provide email marketing that help make your job easy and fast. In general I love Mailrelay and specially the support!

Pros

In general it is very friendly to use. The support is incredible. You can send up more emails for free comparing to other companies. Easy to import contacts and lists It is in Spanish Better opening rate

Cons

-There are some features not available such as re-sending your campaign only to certain segment, such as the ones that did not open the last campaign, etc. this features are available in other -The hours of the app are not consisting with the county I am in, it uses Spain hours I beleive.

Best malchimp alternative value-price

Reviewed 3 years ago

I was using mailrelay as my choice until I found sendy (self hosted with Amazon AWS). But if you don't have advanced technical knowledge, this is your best option if you need best price-value.

Pros

It's price is affordable and software quality is good. It's easy to use, has statistics, designer, and list manager. It's free version is well for what most people needs.

Cons

It's UI design. But they updated it a year ago. Now is nicer. It doesn't have as many integrations yet as mailchimp.

Review of Mailrelay services

Reviewed 6 years ago

Since I use short time Mailrelay, I cannot talk about the complete pacakge they offer. However, I can tell that it is really broad e-mail service platform, that you can use for really whole spectrum of needs. You can adjust, your subscriber list, you can import newsletter templates and send them when you want and how much you want (of course there is a limitation by the total number of subscribers,...

Pros

funconality, a number of different possibilities

Cons

you cannot repeat sending for part of the list of the subscriber, that did not open or if you add new subscribers ..and then you have to repeat for the entire list

Effective Email Marketing

Reviewed 6 years ago

This is an amazing piece of software. The software appears to have been developed with thoughtful consideration of security features and resource demands. It's light weight and quite flexible in deployment options. Creating an email marketing template with Mailrelay is fairly easy. Mailrelay uses a WYSIWYG template to create newsletters. The actual newsletter is created in an HTML editor. You can either use an existing template or create a new one, using custom HTML code.

Pros

Great and helpful software. I will recommend it to my colleagues sysadmins. Great solution if you have a huge amount of SMTP requests from different servers and pcs in your company to the same SMTP server on the web. Very easy to configure, so useful, nice application!

Cons

Need upgrade adds resend the previously sent campaign with customized criteria.

Mailrelay is my favorite email marketing software

Reviewed 6 years ago

I have been using it for several years, easy to use, great templates which save me a lot of designing time. Just have to follow them on tweeter, facebook and G+ and you'll get a lot of contacts and emails to send monthly.

Pros

Organization, easy to use and administer

Cons

I'm not an html expert, and sometimes when I import an email from other source like Outlook, some code appears in the mailrelay campaign (not in the edit mode but in the final email send). It's kind of hard to get ride of it.

Cheap, but not great Email campaign service

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

It is cheaper than Mailchimp, and as it is an Spanish company, most of the software was already translated in spanish.

Cons

UX and user interface are poorly designed and difficult to use. Also our spam ratio grew a bit when using the service. And, ironically, we were constantly sent not email marketing newsletters from the company, which were not that useful.

Vendor response

Hi Luis! Your account doesn't have some necessary technical configurations implemented, as for example SPF. That would explain the increased SPAM ratio, as those configurations are really required when working with email marketing. Please contact our support team which will be very happy to help. Regards, Mailrelay team.

My review about Mailrelay

Reviewed 6 years ago

I've been using Mailrelay for a long time, after trying other similar tools, I decided to use it again. They have improved their Dashboard, but has a flaw that is critical for me (other tools also have it) and it is the search for bounced mails or no longer used. The search has to be done manually, wasting a considerable amount of time :( The RSS template does not work that well, I'm not a programmer in HTML so I have no idea how to make the images be invoked. I asked for help to support, but they are not the best at answering apart from redirecting you to their Blog, video tutorials, etc. They do not realize that I need, many users have very little time-customized help and would be willing to extend my plan inclusive :(

Pros

Good platform to send out emails.

Cons

their support is too simple, they are not empathic and chat support almost never works and if I can communicate I always get the same response, go to the Blog, Videos :( see Tutorials

When I heard about mailrelay offering free mass mail and autoreponder, i was elated. Finally I can send my newsletter and reach out to as many people as I can. The UI was easy to navigate and has superb tools to create newsletter and relevant statistical data to know your newsletter status. This is one great mass emailer.. Cheers to you.

Pros

Great UI, easy to navigate, user friendly, relevant statistical data. sufficient monthly quota.

Cons

need more tools to create customized newsletter. Do not have available codes to enhance the look of newsletter.

MailRelay with the latest integration ThriveLeads is wonderful

Reviewed 6 years ago

At all times they advise, guide me and help me even by just providing a free account. Add much value these folks of MailRelay. Congratulations.

Pros

Now with the new update of ThriveLeads, it is just wonderful. Autoresponder, high deliverability and servers in the European Union.

Cons

They should be included in Divi Elegant themes as they have done with MailChimp and GetResponse. At some point the application crashes when trying to save data and forces you to restart the session.

Pros

Creating templates, emails and generating campaigns is good

We initially used this for creating email campaigns but this has the added load of using an email server. It is not an all in one program. Paying for just creating campaigns in todays date makes no sense when there are 1oo`s of other players who offer the same for free
