Known bugs :
Mail revisions : not working as intended.
Using addon Tracking without Tracking_rewrite_url : tracking links in old mails are obsolete (no more .../mailpress/mp-includes/action.php for security reasons). Url rewriting is not possible because GET parameters have to be modified ! Has anyone a clue ? (7.0.2)
Using addon Post : list of post in edit mail not sortable (some issue with ajax) (7.0.3)
Using addon Form : full code review necessary.

To be tested :
Installation on a new WP site (done !).
