Threadloom Newsletter lets you easily send your communities best content direct to subscribers' inboxes.

It uses machine learning to select your best content. This produces newsletters with higher click rates, and saves you time. You can send newsletters automatically, or create a review panel to curate them with Curation Assistant.

You can get started in minutes with automated curation. Send up to 25,000 emails per month for free, which includes everything you need for a successful newsletter: SendGrid email delivery, Kickbox email address verification, Curation Assistant, XenForo list synchronization, Acid-tested templates, and reporting. After your first 25,000 emails per month, pricing for additional emails is $0.20 per 1,000 emails.

Threadloom Newsletter also now offers custom scheduling to find the perfect fit for your community's needs. FordRaptorForum.com grew daily traffic by more than 10% with this feature (you can read the case study here).

When you pair Threadloom Newsletter with List Builder (included with Newsletter), you create an opportunity to capture drive-by traffic.Be sure to check out Threadloom’s List Builder here.

Can you choose which of the members will receive the newsletter?

Hi @nw-fotografie - yes, you definitely can. You can restrict which members receive your Newsletter based on activity level, user group, domain name, and individual email address.

This is the "free" version we're seeing here on the org, for that it must be "free" so my primary question is, upon signing up for the service on your site does the free version grant the ability to send a certain number of mails for free? 100% Free?

Or is it still a required payment of $10 per month for upwards of 10k emails to be processed?

I need to know the answer to this in order to ensure the rules are being followed more so #16(c) on said page for this modification release. If there is no option to send certain set # for free we'll need to remove the modification OR you can append its settings and/or the type of account created to allow a low # of free mails to be sent and then this would be allowed.

Simply post back here or pm me for clarification on this, I'll edit this post and any others accordingly once I have a reply ;).

Edit: I've unapproved this post to hide it, the answer I sought was in the description, oversight on my part:

Weekly newsletters are free up to 500 contacts
