The New Post Notification email automation feature (a.k.a Post2Email, RSS-to-Email) in MailOptin is an essential tool for email list builders. This tutorial will teach us how to set up a new post notification to a Moosend list. It will go a long way in saving you stress because you will automate the process.

And so you will be able to make sure you manually create newsletters for every new post you publish on your WordPress site.

MailOptin will automatically send the new post newsletter to your email list subscribers on your behalf for every new post you publish.

Every time a new post is published, MailOptin will send out an email to your subscribers.

You can also decide to send a daily, weekly, or monthly round-up of published posts instead of immediately after posts are published.


For this to work without any issue, please ensure all email campaign settings, especially the address and sender part, are filled and saved. Also, please ensure the From Email and Reply-To email addresses are verified senders.
