    Great addon! One of the best ways to bring back your old and inactive users and keep them engaged.
    Just set it and forget about it, it's totally automatic.

    Great Add-on, A must have if you want to keep your members actively involved in your forums discussions, it’s like a reminder saying don’t forget to check out the latest discussions. Andy your attention to detail is impressive. Keep up the great work! Without some of your add-on’s our forum would not be as active as it has become. Nor would it be such a cool forum to belong. Thanks for the countless hrs of hard work you have put into all your add-on’s.

    This the best add-on for me right now, it can be used as newsletter just set the minimum days to 0 and it'll send the message to all members even you, i was looking for a newsletter add-on but found this more useful and practical, really awesome job here!

    Great addon, recommended. It would better if the number of emails sent out could be throttled easily / batched somehow. I'm going to send out a mail to my inactive members once a month.
