The New Post Notification feature email feature (a.k.a Post2Email, RSS-to-Email) on MailOptin trigger the sending of automated email newsletters within your email marketing service provider when you publish a new post in WordPress.

This tutorial will teach us how to set up New Post Notification to Sendy email list. Doing so will go a long way in eliminating any manual process needed to send newsletters to your email subscribers.

For every new post you publish, MailOptin will automatically send the new post as a newsletter to your Sendy list subscribers on your behalf (via Sendy API).

To get started:

Ensure you’ve connected MailOptin with your Sendy installation. If you haven’t done that, go ahead and do it before returning to this tutorial.

Click “Email Automations“> Create New.

Enter your “Automation Title” and “Select Automation Type” > “New Post Notification” > Select Template.

Here’s how to use your own custom email template.

After selecting your template, you will be taken to the email customizer page where you can configure the automation settings, template page, template header, template content and even send a test email to your email address.
