I hope this helps someone who may be interested in a newsletter feature which I have yet to find one for Xenforo that meets my needs. The biggest concern I encountered is not being able to send more than 500 emails per hour due to my host. This will be controlled by your new external email provider via an add on linked below. I came over from Vbulletin and used a few of their newsletter mods and they worked beautifully for me for many years and my members enjoyed them. I send them out monthly as to not be considered too spammy. How did the newsletter help? Increase in unique visitors (See Google Analytics graph below - newsletter marked off on the day sent.) Increase in member interaction increase in Donations increase in Google ads revenue First I installed and configured this add on http://xenforo.com/community/resources/bd-mails.2313/ by @xfrocks Then I purchased a nice looking html News letter template from here for about $15 bucks - http://themeforest.net They will help you set it up to your liking once purchased (support a little slow, but very helpful.) After you have your HTML newsletter template set up, go to ACP> Users> Email Users> Choose the HTML option - then just copy and paste the newsletter code into your email body box. Send away!
