Improvements: Recovery in the unopened

Our development team is pleased to announce a great improvement that many of our users were waiting for:
The email campaigns with automatic recovery.

What does that mean?
It means that Mailpro will analyze unread emails campaigns and will automatically resend them to corresponding recipients in the address book.

What is the advantage?
It will increase newsletters' reading rate without disturbing people who have already viewed this email. The statistics will be consolidated.


The Automatic newsletter builder!

We have the great pleasure to announce an improvement that will make your life easier! The Automatic newsletter builder (Beta version).

You can add elements (texts/images), buttons, adjust the cells with your mouse and images automatically resize themselves!

Watch the demo video:


Editing of the automatic links that are included in your messages.

Many of you asked us to be able to edit and change the position of automatic message sentences such as "click here to unsubscribe” or “If you don’t see this email correctly, please click here".

You can edit now a text to suit your needs and define the location of these phrases in your message by adding the variable « $linkTop$ » and« $linkBottom$ » in your message. In the case that these variables are not detected by our system , the system will work as before and automatically add the links to your newsletter.


Improvements of Mailpro V. 5.1

Version 5.0 of Mailpro emailing is available!

Today is the release date of Version 5.0 of Mailpro e-mailing software!  We explain down below what’s new for you to use.


This new version has new e-mail tools to make your life easier.  You don’t have to upgrade to this new version yet—the old version will remain in place several months—but you can try out what will be your future Mailpro.


Spam check


First, this new version allows you to do a final verification before sending.  It happens that some e-mailings contain spam words, broken links or are too heavy.  These details are important since they can prevent entry into a reception box.  Thanks to the spam check, you control your e-mail and ensure your derivability.  Moreover, the Mailpro partner, Mailcleaner, analyzes your e-mail to detect any elements which could flag it as spam. 


Geolocalization


Before, if you organized your database into geographic segments, you might have had trouble situating some prospects.  This new geolocalization service is based on internet connection data and on IP addresses reserved for suppliers; it allows you to see by country or by city where your prospects are situated. 


Importing Excel files


Do you save your Excel files into CVS?  Now you can directly import Excel files (XLS or XLSX).  This function saves you time, but it’s also much more practical!


100% compatible with iPad


The old flash graphics were not viewable on iPad.  Now Mailpro is entirely compatible thanks to Google graphic tools.  You can now consult all of Mailpro wherever you go. 


A better economy


This new version allows regular users to benefit from certain navigation habits.  New users can utilize Mailpro quickly and easily thanks to the « Startup » function.
All you need is to try Mailpro and adopt it! 
E-mailingly yours, the Mailpro teams

Installation of a second datacenter for AgenceWeb SA

As Internet specialists, our focus is to provide our clients with high-level service and flawless data reliability.  

We celebrate today the deployment of our second datacenter on the Swiss territory, more specifically in Zurich. The objective is to establish a direct connection between this new datacenter and the existing one. The 300 km separating the two locations can be answered within a few milliseconds, a source of pride for Mr. Martinelli, the new CIO of the company.

AgenceWeb SA does not pretend to offer a flawless service, since no network can be guaranteed failure-free. After considering the worst case scenario, in which both the network and the servers would be unavailable we decided to establish this second datacenter that could operate in the event of a breakdown, and, more importantly, make substitution backups to avoid any data losses. In addition, the two datacenters will also offer you a server infrastructure so that you do not need to possess your own.

Regarding this new infrastructure, AgenceWeb SA CEO Régis Courbat adds:

“We offer today a highly redundant infrastructure with geo-localization to our SME  customers who need local services in the first place. This second datacenter is also part of our strategy of hosted applications spearheaded by our Mailpro service.”

For Mailpro™ e-mailing software, these datacenters are of crucial importance. They allow their users to store all their databases, but also their e-mailings and newsletters.

AgenceWeb SA offers not only hosting services, but also secure and available housing at any time.

Using Google Analytics in your emailings

Calculate the number of visitors on your website coming from your newsletter.

Do you use Google Analytics for your site? If you do, then you can optimize your emailing in order to track the visits they generate. To do that, you can just add some elements to your hypertext links. Google Analytics will be able to identify which visits are coming from your emailing campaign.

Several options are possible in order to allow you to analyze the email address, the emailing campaign etc… Furthermore, it is possible to use this technique for split-tests in order to select the email marketing campaigns which are most relevant.

IPV6 Day

On the 8th of June there will be a global test of the IPv6 standard

The biggest actors of the Web (Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, …) will make a full-scale test for the IPv6 standard. This test will take one full day and has the goal of preparing the implementation of this new standard.

The IP is a unique address for internet connection. The current standard, IPv4, has a limited number of possible addresses. This limite has already bee reached and this is why it’s imperative to introduce a new standard which allows the attribution of a bigger number of addresses. IPv6 can cover this need.

Thus, June 8 is a big day to watch on the web. This full-scale test will allow to identify if the various actors of the web are ready to adopt the new IP. According to Google, this transition will not be a problem for 99.95% of the users.
