MailPress 7.0.1

First thing first, MailPress is back (since Friday) in the WordPress plugin repository.

Remember that PHP Mail is not supported anymore. So you have to have a smtp server whether you access it via smtp or sendmail.

To accept international emails, your smtp server needs to support SMTPUTF8

I don’t want to repeat myself, so don’t forget to read the previous posts about 7.0beta, 7.0 RC and 7.0 RC2.

Future enhancements :
Removing Google Map for Open Street Map (done !)
Fixing bugs
Review to be done for revisions and form addon.

Happy New Year !

As an upgrader :
