Get personal with your readers by assigning custom fields for everyone in your list.

One-Click Unsubscribe

With Direct Mail you no longer have to worry about managing your unsubscribe requests. Once a recipient has unsubscribed, they’ll simply appear in your list as crossed out. You don't need to lift a finger. Oh, we also take care of all of your bounces, too.

Set It & Forget It

We make it easy to schedule emails to go out whenever you wish. Got a timely promotion? Just create the message now and set your email to send automatically when the time is right.

We Speak SMTP

If you already have your own company mail server, we’re good with that, too. Direct Mail can send via your own SMTP server, and can be tuned to respect sending quotas.

Adiós to Ads

It’s your email, not ours. That’s why Direct Mail gives you the option of removing ads or co-branding from your emails. Keep your design the way you intended it!

Brand Away

It’s all about presentation, so provide your customers with a 100% branded experience by using your own domain name (instead of ours) in your email tracking URLs. Our feelings won’t be hurt and you’ll look like a rock star.

Collaborate in the Cloud

Sharing Made Easy

Work with each other whether you’re in the same room or across the globe. Your Direct Mail projects can now be saved to the cloud. Invite colleagues to view or edit your email campaigns, mailing lists, reports, and more. Let the teamwork begin!

With Your Permission

Fine–grained permission control lets you decide who gets full access to edit (and send) your projects, and who gets to just take a look. Collaborators who don’t already use Direct Mail can sign up for a free account to work on your project.

Safe & Secure

The cloud means never having to worry about backing up your campaigns again. Your work is stored safely in the cloud and is easily accessible at any time from any device (even offline). Create as many projects as you want.

Real Time Updates

See edits from your collaborators as soon as they make them. With Direct Mail’s cloud syncing capabilities, all updates take place in real time, no refresh required. Your team stays in the loop and you stay on track.

Automate Your Campaigns

Your Campaign is Working,
Even When You’re Not

Tell Direct Mail when to send an email on your behalf, automatically, using autoresponders! For example, you can trigger an email when someone joins your mailing list (and a follow-up one week later). Autoresponders are highly customizable, easy to use, and come with the same great reporting features you already know and love.
