Wellington, NI New Zealand (PressExposure) November 29, 2007 -- Xequte today announced the release of MailList King v7.0, a major upgrade of their mailing list management software.
MailList King brings the functionality of a mailing list server to a PC, allowing users to easily create, manage and communicate with the people interested in their products or organization. MailList King can integrate with all popular e-mail software (including Outlook, Outlook Express and Gmail) or directly with mail servers to retrieve mailing list messages (such as subscribes, removals and undeliverable messages) and deliver automatic responses, double opt-in confirmations and personalized, rich text messages.
Version 7.0 is a significant new release incorporating more than 150 enhancements, with particular focus on improving the interface and common dialogs, and more powerful searching.
Most striking to users of earlier versions is the improved layout of the main window which now sports a folder tree to make it easier to access different views of the mailing list and active sending tasks. Group management is now much simpler as tasks can be created and edited directly from the main window. Searching is enhanced with access to all mailing list fields and more powerful filtering, for example, finding all members who have not been emailed since June, or reside in the US, Canada and Mexico.
Enhancements to the user interface flow throughout the application including a redesigned Options dialog to make it more easily navigable and less confusing. The message sending dialog has also been and a revamped to demote lesser used functions and make it easier to access common ones. Styling has been improved throughout, particularly with regard to native Vista enhancements.
New message delivery options make it simple for users to adhere to ISP sending rules. Many ISP's limit the number of messages a recipient can send within a time period and may not allow bulk sending at specific times. MailList King now can handle this automatically; author a message and it is delivered at a time and frequency within your permitted limits. A new Sending Summary dialog is shown on completion of a sending task and offers instant access to common functions, such as viewing the delivery log or restarting sending if an error was encountered.
Automated birthday messages are now fully supported allowing users to enhance familiarity with their customers.
MailList King also provides improved support for languages, including automatic guessing of the language of a subscriber based on their locale and allowing you to easily send localized messages.
MailList King now includes improved tools to ensure the addresses in your email list are still valid. Addresses can be validated much more quickly and reliably with new options to check only the domain of the email against a DNS server. It can automatically block addresses with unknown Top-Level Domains.
Other improvements include batch update of email addresses and print preview support for graphs.
