FireMail improves the way you send emails from your control panel. It is both an email manager and tracker in one.
The built-in email tool in EE found under Tools > Communicate is sufficient for simple email sending, but it lacks many important features. In addition, the changes in EE 2 mean that developers will not be able to customise or add features to it.
FireMail is a complete email tool that replaces the Communicate tab, but that reuses the best of EE’s built-in email libraries. It adds a WYSIWYG editor when composing emails, supports batch sending for sending of mass mails, and allows you to track opens, clicks and unsubscribes resulting from any email you send.
How It Works
The main screen of FireMail shows you all of the emails that have been sent out (including those sent from the Communicate tab), as well as the number of people that have clicked on a link in the email and the click-through rate.
Every email that was sent from FireMail has relevant statistics that can help you measure your email’s success in real-time. The individual statistics are:
- Unique Opens: the number of people who opened the email (see notes about opens below)
- Clicks: the number of people who clicked on a link in the email
- Unsubscribed: the number of people who unsubscribed from a mailing list using the unsubscribe link in the email
- Unopened: the number of people who did not open the email (how dare they!)
- The line graph displays opens and clicks in the first 24 hours, 48 hours, 72 hours, week and month.
The top links that were clicked on in the email are also displayed. A full report shows the links along with the index of each link (the position of the link in the email as the same link can appear multiple times in the same email) and the number of clicks.
Emails can be sent with FireMail in a more email-like fashion than on the Communicate tab. A WYSIWYG email editor is included to help you get the look and feel you want. EE tags can be used and emails can and should be previewed before being sent. Mailing lists and member groups can be added and batch sending is supported (through EE’s normal mail configuration settings).
Templates can be easily imported from EE’s native templates. The templates will be automatically parsed before being put into the editor.
