The OFBiz system contains an email mailing list where users can subscribe to via the ecommerce component.
AntWebsystems now completed the email mailing list function in Apache OFBiz and integrated the function with the rest of the system. It allows users on your site to subscribe to a mailing list and you to send out messages to your subscribers. It will also allow you to create other specific mailing lists on a selection of the people and/or companies in the party component. An example is to select all customers from a specific country and write them an email for their specific needs. Also functions are provided to unsubscribe. A contact list is related to a website/productstore where all templates reside. The contactlist can also be used for calling lists and normal paper mailings.
The next thing you have to do is to create a 'contactlist' in the marketing component which relates to the website/productstore you have used before. This contact list id you have to use on your e-commerce site. In the standard OFBiz trunk download there is demo data which shows an example how to set up a contact list.
Creating contact list from existing
Send an email to the contact
The system will now start sending the
communication email to all subscribers of the contact list. When an
email does not exist and is bounced, the related email address will
be automatically be unsubscribed.
