Update: Direct Mail 3.4 now seamlessly integrates with Daylite 4.1! Please see this blog post for more information.
Congratulations to our friends at Marketcircle on the release of Daylite 4, a fantastic customer relationship management application for your Mac (and iOS, too)! Many people have been asking us if our Daylite to Direct Mail plug-in is compatible with Daylite 4. As mentioned on their website, Daylite 4 does not yet officially support plug-ins or connectors, so the answer is no—for now. We are actively working with Marketcircle to bring you an compatible plug-in as soon as they are ready. Stay tuned!
We’re happy to announce some fresh new bits for you to enjoy. We released the 3.1.1 update for Direct Mail this morning. The release notes have a full run-down of the changes, but here are a couple highlights:
Performance and Bug Fixes
You will find that navigating around your project (changing tabs, selecting groups, history report sections, etc.) is much faster, as is opening project documents. The improvements are particularly noticeable in large projects. In addition, several bugs (including bugs causing crashes) have been fixed.
Swipe to Go Back
Just like swiping to go back or forward between webpages in Safari, you can now use the swipe gesture on your trackpad or mouse to move between sections of the history report:
This gesture makes it easy to drill down from the Summary section into detailed reports, and then swipe back to the Summary.
How to Upgrade
Upgrading is easy. Just choose Direct Mail > Check for Software Update from the menu bar.
If you downloaded Direct Mail from the Mac App Store, you will have to launch the App Store to update your application.
Direct Mail is great for designing, sending, and tracking email campaigns on your Mac, but wouldn’t it be great if you could get campaign updates on your iPhone, too? Now, you can! We’re very happy to announce today’s release of our new iOS app called Stamps.
Use Stamps on your iPhone to track the results of any email campaign you send from Direct Mail on your Mac:
Direct Mail and Stamps sync automatically, so your campaign data is always up-to-date. The familiar iOS interface makes it easy to dig into the details with just one tap:
What does it cost?
Stamps is free! You’ll need to have signed up for a Direct Mail pricing plan (or be an existing Direct Mail 2 user) to sign in.
We are happy to announce the availability of a free update to Direct Mail addressing some bugs that you may have run across. Notable changes include:
Hyperlinks embedded in the web version of your email now always point to the correct URL.
Message body content pasted or imported from Microsoft Word now renders properly.
Email rendering in Hotmail is improved.
See the release notes for more information. This update is recommended for all users. Update by choosing Direct Mail > Check for Software Update from the menu bar. Mac App Store customers can update via the App Store.
E3 Software is very excited to announce the launch of the all-new Direct Mail 3! With over 100 new enhancements and a brand new engine under the hood, we are sure that Direct Mail 3 will surprise and delight both old and new users. Let’s take a look at some of what’s new and improved.
