nuevoMailer SB/MB - May 29, 2024
Major general features
  • A new interface. The menu moved to the left side and can be pinned or hidden. This new approach is also much more pleasant when using a tablet.
  • Night mode and skins. You can create your own color theme and it will not be overwritten by future updates.
  • Clone a trigger or edit it and assign it to a different campaign, list, newsletter or hyperlink.
  • Global triggers based on click or open which are not tied to a specific campaign, list, newsletter or hyperlink. Useful for emptying out dormant lists.
  • Advanced search new options:
    - Find subscribers who belong to some lists but not in others.
    - Find subscribers who clicked (or not) one or more specific links.
  • Embedded images also when sending a page by URL, using an html file from your templates.
  • Send a single campaign (or autoresponder) email to a subscriber. In this way you can see the message fully rendered exactly as if it was in a campaign. Not just for testing; this action updates also your campaign reports.
  • SMTP2GO webhook endpoint for processing bounces and complaints when using this provider.
  • The "Return to website" that appears under the "Opt-out reasons" can be different for each sender profile.
  • Implemented the List-Unsubscribe-Post: List-Unsubscribe=One-Click header according to rfc8058. This addresses the problem where email scanners follow every link in a newsletter including the list-unsubscribe-header link which would cause an accidental opt-out.
  • Improved the extraction of zipped newsletter templates. Having your images in an images folder is no longer necessary. The images paths can be anything. The extraction will place all images in the assets folder and adjust images paths automatically.
  • Improved the calculation of all views and all clicks ratios. The reason for this is that several ESPs tend to scan newsletters and follow the links multiple times. Clicks or opens that happen from the same subscriber on exactly the same second are now counted as one.
  • The Email clients chart was updated. It reports separately the Mozilla/5.0 user agent which to a large extent results from Apple's Mail Privacy Protection.
  • Added calendars for selecting start-end dates in the ip-based geolocation maps. Both maps, city and countries were updated.
  • Added complaints & bounces in the Trend chart that you have in your Home page.
  • Many other productivity improvements that you will experience and enjoy after upgrading.
Opt-in forms received a major update in v.10.1
You have a new interface for building forms and many new options for integrating them with a short explanation about what works, where and why. More specifically,
  • Google reCAPTCHA v3 added as option.
  • Redesigned the built-in captcha to use partitioned cookies. This addresses the coming 3rd party cookie restrictions which Chrome has already started to apply. This is especially useful when forms are placed in a different domain from the nuevoMailer installation domain.
  • Rate limiter in form submissions. You can stop multiple repeat submissions from the same IP address (time frame & number of attempts defined by you).
  • You have a failed form submissions log along with the blocking reason.
  • Pop-up forms: the code is presented to you, ready to test, and copy-paste.
  • Added option to disable an opt-in form if you need to do so for any reason.
  • You can add a background image to your forms using the assets manager when you create or edit the form.
Subscribers and Mailing lists
  • Your subscribers and mailing lists pages received a total redesign and you will experience faster loading and visual improvements when sorting records.
  • Added a "quick search" box in both pages that instantly highlights the matching search results.
  • In CSV exports you can now choose which subscriber fields you want to include.
  • Update list preferences opt-out link. This is not actually an opt-out but instead redirects the subscriber to a page where one can select only mailing lists. It is similar to the "Subscriber portal". Here is how it looks.
  • Manually create a "list opt-out" for a specific list in the subscriber profile editing page.
  • You can pass the IP-subscribed when using the api.

10.0 new features

nuevoMailer SB/MB - February 1, 2024
nuevoMailer WP - April 12, 2024
Major new features
  • Send-Time optimization
    Send your newsletters when a subscriber is most likely to click or open. Requires the multi-threaded sending plugin in order to time-tune a campaign but you can still collect related subscriber data. Learn more or read about its benefits.
  • OpenAI ChatGPT integration.
    Inside nuevoMailer admin panel just enter your own api key and start using it. Organize your chats by topic. Complete message history exchanged in order to maintain context.
  • Conditional content blocks builder
    Much easier to build blocks with IF/ELSE conditions based on subscriber fields. You can now use date fields as well and you have new options like "contains", "starts with", "ends with". You can also save these blocks. See the docs.
  • Autoresponder improvements
    New autoresponders based on last click/open.
    Autoresponders based on X days after are sent in batches and exactly at the activation hour/minute you define. E.g. always at 9:30 am.
    No changes for autoresponders based on X minutes/hours after which are sent without batches.
  • For the List-unsubscribe header besides the list opt-out and global opt-out actions, you now have a new option: suppress subscriber.
  • Advanced search
    Added AND/OR operators for mailing lists, subscriber tags and campaigns.
    Extended the search in subscriber tags for both having and not having a tag.
    Added also a new option to tag/un-tag the whole subscriber segment found in the search results.
  • For triggers based on click or open you now have a condition on the number of times opened/clicked. For example, you can specify that the trigger will execute after 3 clicks or after 2 opens and not from the first time.
Other notable improvements and features (v.10.0)
  • You can add a preheader also when sending a page using the URL.
  • Fallback text when the countdown timer expires (instead of 00:00:00 which is the default if you don't use a fallback text).
  • Campaign completed webhook. When a campaign finishes a function is called. You can use this call to retrieve and share campaign data using an existing outbound webhook. It is not used by default. We include sample code and examples for those who want to use it.
  • Filter newsletters by tag (reloads instantly) when creating a campaign or an autoresponder. Very handy!
  • Maximum error threshold. Email sending may generate smtp or similar protocol errors. You can use this setting to automatically pause a campaign when this threshold is exceeded (like 5%).
  • The page with the Opt-out reasons that the subscriber sees was redesigned using radio buttons and added a link to your website.
  • Quick search: search by subscriber ID and campaign ID. Refined the search for autoresponders and campaigns.

Reporting features (v.10.0)
  • The Recent subscriber activity report in your Welcome page now depicts better the different types of opt-out (global, suppression, snooze etc).

    Click/open city and country.
    Opt-in/-out city & country. 
    You can do an advanced search and create segmentation filters (or lists) using the above.

    The same applies for all bounces processing methods.
    Instead you can use the automatic suppression thresholds to isolate these subscribers and keep your lists clean.
    This change was necessary to have a clearer reporting picture on real opt-outs from subscribers.
  • New Api v.7 and an updated Zapier app.
