Pros: I like the design and features of tracking the emails. It's very user friendly. The features are very well designed and the overall software is easy to navigate. it gives options to connect to external database.

Cons: If an auto upgrade option was available with the use of license it would be wonderful. I would see that as an option available to end user.

Overall: It has helped me streamline a massive email operation and I am delighted to have this software. Its been a wonderful experience so far and I look at the various features available through the report which helps us to understand where do we have more presence and traction. Its helps to take decision as the data is readily available for us.

I recently switched to Gammadyne from Atom Park's software, and I love it!

Pros: Easy to use, good delivery rate, helpful & fast responding support team, I love the HTML import because it allows me to create fully custom campaigns and import them, tracking feature is awesome too!

Cons: I wish you could track or verify which emails reject or failed to send so that I can edit my lists or contact the customer and get a new email from them.

Simply the best!

Pros: The ease of integration with sql and different databases. G-Merge is great!

Cons: No cons.

Overall: I've been using Gammadyne Mailer for almost two decades and it is simply the best! There are so many resources available and it's good to see it in constant improvement.

Recommendations to other buyers: It should be nice if I could declare the Recipient Column with the format "Recipient Name"<[[RecipientEmail]]>.

Pros: No breakdowns. Always work over expectation.

Overall: This is truly a great mailing tool for a small company who need to communicate to professional market via e-mail. There is a jungle of different ways to do this and Gammadyne have had all posibillities we have needed over the years. All parameters are included in one program. Gammadyne seems to have the answer before we as a customer have the knowledge to ask the question. Updating of the software to fit the present needs have been fantastic.

Overall: I have used Gammadyne Mailer for more than a decade. It is the core of my email marketing business. It's easy to use, powerful, has plenty of features and is constantly being improved upon. I have not found a product that comes close to matching it and the price makes it an unbeatable value.

Pros: Deep functionality

Cons: Need some technical skills to use

Overall: I've been using Gammadyne Mailer for more than 10 years.

It has very rich functionality and you can bend it to do exactly what you want - especially if you want to do something unusual.

While the current batch of on-line email tools are great if you want to do something standard (send a simple email) this tool lets you do whatever you want and integrate to your internal systems.

That depth of functionality comes with some complexity and you need some technical (programming if possible) skills to operate it.

I've recommended this tool many times in the past.

Pros: I like the configurable aspect the software gives me. Companies like mailchimp and others don't want you sending to info at addresses or sales at. Well I have alot of clients that have those kinds of emails. Gammadyne lets you do what you want.

Cons: Setting the throttle periods so that emails don't get junked is a learning curve.

Overall: Gammadyne makes a powerful mailer at a fraction of the price of any competitor. I know I researched for weeks to find the best and this is it. Be aware this is a very configurable, and not for the weak. For example you must know your user names and passwords and gateway settings for all email accounts you intend to use. If you try to use your own domain, be aware you need to slow down delivery they call it (throttle) your emails or spam settings will kill your project. I love the merge capabilities with all major database platforms. It is a super product. Enjoy.

Recommendations to other buyers: Just buy it and get going if you need a good solution.

Cons: Licensing is a bit of a hassle, but is worth it.

Overall: I have been using Gammadyne mailer for over a decade and it is still one of the most affordable, flexible and easy to use programs in the market. Kudos to the Gammadyne team!

Recommendations to other buyers: It would be nice if Gammadyne offered a mail server service so we wouldn't have to worry about being blacklisted as a spammer.

Pros: Full function program, handling everything from sign-ups, to bounces, to sending out a weekly newsletter (in my case). Greg provides great personal support.

Cons: Takes some significant learning. Less than easy double-opt-in process.

Overall: I have been using Gammadyne Mailer probably for 10 years or more. It really is a full-functioned mailing program. There is a significant learning curve, but once you have set it up, it works by itself. Over the years, I have had occasion to ask Greg W. questions via email. He has been gracious with his time, and helpful with his answers -- even a decade after my purchase! [Note: the writer may receive compensation for this review if among first 25 to send in a review. However, these are my honest opinions irrespective of whether I receive compensation.]

Recommendations to other buyers: The program is best for someone with good computer background, but you don't have to be a programmer to use it.

Comments: We've used Gammadyne since early 2000s. In today's world of CRMs and Marketing Automation Services with integrated metrics and reporting, it's hard to find a place for this software. But I can tell you where it excels for us now... deliverability.

Gammadyne is our "go to" whenever we need to manage mail sending to clients and want to continue to use our own mail servers. Unscientifically, we have found this to give us the highest deliverability rate than even the third party services with all their "SMTP systems" and white list agreements with ISPs. Since you have complete control over the send operation you can meter it or turn on the fire hydrant and send large batches. But beware it's pretty complex. If you're not very technically oriented then you're better off going with any of the umpteem other mail services out there. Or perhaps you can hire Gammadyne to configure the system for you?

If you want complete control and probably the highest deliverability you can get, Gammadyne Mailer is the way to go.

And the support has always been fantastic.

Cons: Sometimes, it is a bit harder to find what I'm looking for in the documentation. BUT, the more I deal with it the better it gets.

Overall: I use the mailer for lots of different functions, usually to email to addresses stored in a database. The ability to easily use all the data stored allows me to structure individual emails as customized for each recipient as though I'd written it from scratch by hand.

Recommendations to other buyers: The response to emails requesting assistance are the best I've encountered.

Cons: No native protocol support for Microsoft Exchange/ Office 365
Interface looks ancient

Overall: Gammadyne Mailer is a very versatile tool for email automation. It has the ability to process sign-ups, opt-outs, and bounce-backs. The software interface is a bit crowded and looks ancient but it's quite intuitive to browse. It still does not support native Microsoft protocols to connect Office 365 or Exchange instead you should turn on POP or IMAP to connect these services.
Overall this is a very good product with low price.

Pros: Its relative ease of use, especially for a novice, and its thoroughness of design and execution.

Cons: The main drawbacks have not to do with the software itself but with the practically unlivable limitations that most ISPs put on outbound e-mail these days.

Overall: Having used Gammadyne for myself and various clients through the years, I have only grown in my respect for the product. Obviously, it will never replace larger-scale E-Mailer Server Software packages but it represents a good compromise for the small-to-medium-sized user.

Recommendations to other buyers: I have found responsiveness from the Tech Support people to be outstanding!

Overall: Gammadyne is a great tool that we have been using for long time in our Department of Communications and Public Relations to communicate with our School, we can have our own design to send the different news letters, have attachments, and all of the updates have been of great use. Thank you so much!!

It has never left my system since and has offered to me, the most affordable email messaging communications platform that has powered hundreds of campaigns, both in-house and commissioned.

Pros: If you're looking for a specific feature, it's there.

Cons: You have to learn the mechanics of how email sending actually works instead of being hands-off and just pressing "go."

Overall: If you're a DIY user, Gammadyne Mailer is an excellent choice. Sure it might be a little slower sending than a cluster of dedicated mail servers, and you need to learn the features that are important to you, but you won't feel ripped off by some service provider. Everything that I was looking for in an ESP I found Gammadyne could do. Invest in understanding how email lists work, and you'll have a very valuable tool that's going to save you a lot of money. Plus you'll keep control of your lists, manage your own sender reputation, and feel more accomplished and connected to your audience. It's the difference between hiring a promoter and learning to build loyalty on your own. It takes a little effort on your part, but the result is you understand and adjust to make your email programs much more meaningful (both internally and externally) and more likely to be read by your audience. Being hands-on with email is way better than using a service provider. The mistakes you make will teach you how to be a better communicator.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's worth the investment of your time to become a more effective sender. If you still call it an email blast, you're a bad sender and aren't thinking about your audience. When you use Gammadyne Mailer, you will learn to treat your audience like subscribers, not targets to knock down.

By far, the best

Pros: Very robust. More features than you can imagine. Fully functional part of our business that has not worked as needed.

Cons: NONE

Overall: I've been using Gammadyne Mailer for nearly as long as I've been operating LocalWineEvents.com over 16 years.
I can honestly say that I could not have done what I've done without it.
To this day, it is an absolutely essential piece of our operation. Very little trouble over the years and when I had a question, the support was (and still is) extremely helpful.
I give it five stars across the board.

Recommendations to other buyers: Buy it, if you are looking to manage any email campaigns.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep up, It is difficult to make a good product better. But if you don't keep doing anything can get stale.

Recommendations to other buyers: Wish I knew a little more about email bounce processes.

Pros: Simple and basic interface, easy to use wizards. One time setup for SMTP configuration

Cons: Does not seem to support 3rd party software very well. Our company uses Dreamweaver for WEB design and the software does not display well.

Overall: I am the network technician for our company and work with our sales and marketing team to send our mailers.
The program works well for sending out bulk email without a great deal of complication. The feature I like best is that once I have set the SMTP server settings I do not have to copy or recreate them for each mailer I send, only need to adjust the mailer list itself.
I find that the program works best if you create the mailer from within the program creation tools. When we have tried to import from a program such as Dreamweaver I have found the mailers do not display correctly for the recipient.
Overall the product works well, but it is not for everyone.

Recommendations to other buyers: Allow for the use of CSS for 3rd party web design software

I worked with James on the Dreamweaver problem. Dreamweaver was using an external style sheet, which is not supported with email. Fortunately, Gammadyne Mailer has a "Make Styles Inline" option that helps deal with this.

Pros: quick and simple

Cons: After a few updates (all of which count as "installations" you need to renew the "subscription" - but you do not need to install every update, so you can stretch it out for quite some time.

Overall: We have been using Gammadyne for quite a few years amailing out announcements and newsletters for a commercial insurance agency. We only use a SMALL fraction of it's functionality, but it is simple enough that you only need to learn the parts that you want to use. It is very fast, very capable, and avoids blacklisting by mail servers due to it's intelligent mailing algorithms, using multiple engines simultaneously. I have recommended it to several other organizations as an excellent and very price competitive solution for their requirements

Recommendations to other buyers: There is no phone support - but the e-mail support is about as good as it gets. Greg has not forgotten what "service" means

Pros: You already have my overall review that covers these points.

Cons: Not much to gripe about.

Overall: I've been using Gammadyne Mailer for at least 10 years now. Although I use only a relative handful of the myriad capabilities of this amazing software, its depth of features I find astounding. It is easy-to-use for those of us with simpler needs, but capable of the most complex operations I could ever imagine for those who might require them. My analogy is that it is a Cray Supercomputer built so it can also do simple spreadsheets, word processing and browsing the web as well as handle the most complex calculations anyone could want to do. I've spent a lot of time studying its full range of abilities, only because I find it fascinating.

Being a software junkie in service of making my life at work easier, I've found and used a number of great work task problem-solvers. In my opinion, I have never used any software that upgrades so meaningfully. Each upgrade has either made something better (incl. bug fixes) , added something valuable for someone, or made it easier for me to use.

Last thoughts on my part, is the documentation. Their documentation is more than extensive and clear, and I have never had to call the company to find a solution to my question or problem. Even though I've never called or written the company for support I gave it 5 stars. I just assume what that will be like based on the care that has gone into the program itself.

I guess I like Gammadyne Mailer :-)

Pros: Dependable, flexible, functional

Cons: User interface is clunky, no mac version

Overall: I've been using Gamadyne in a variety of capacities for more than 15 years now. It isn't pretty but its as reliable as any system I've ever encountered. I wish there was a mac version and they had a larger team supporting the software but the help function does the trick and its a great value for the cost.

Recommendations to other buyers: Better for those who aren't scared off by an interface reminiscent of DOS

Pros: Incredibly feature rich - excellent help files, stable, very good value for money.

Overall: We use Gammadyne for all out bulk email sends and incoming processing. It's integrated with our own systems and we have used it extensively for over 12 years. We've had the odd addition to the software to suit our own needs and have always found it robust and capable. It delivers millions of emails every week and reliably handles the incoming leads, unsubscribes and bounces to keep things running smooth.

Pros: That you can send emails cheaply directly to many, many people at once.

Cons: The user interface is horrific.

Overall: I love this program and have been using it for years. I am not a professional emailer, but have somehow mucked my way through the basics. It would be nice if it were easier to figure out and had WYSIWYG. It would also be nice if the HTML portion of it were easier to use as well. But, I basically just don't use that. Anyway, I am hoping it survives and thrives and that they upgrade it considerably.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make it easier to use, prettier. Fix the HTML text builder.

Vendor Response

by Gammadyne on November 03, 2016

Laurel, you rated Customer Support 1 star but did not mention anything specific. If there is an issue, please let us know. By WYSIWYG I assume you are referring to the HTML editor. It does have one. On the HTML Body branch, click the Edit tab. Also, the user interface is highly configurable. Try a different skin. Use F11/F12 to zoom it in or out. If there is something else, please contact us.

Comments: We have used Gammadyne Mailer for many years. We send out a mailshot every month to our 30k subscriber base. Gammadyne Mailer works well for us - it has all the functionality we need (and more) and a comprehensive help file to assist. Infinitely cheaper than using Mail Chimp, and much more control. What¿s not to like about that!

Comments: All I wanted to do was to send an email to a number of customers, to tell them what they had ordered and what they owed. The task seemed simple enough to someone like me who is not that computer literate but no-one could tell me how to do it. I was then told about Gammadyne Mailer and with a little help from a friend I ws able to easily create an email that pulled the information needed from the spreadsheet and sent it out to my customers.
Within 30 minutes I was receiving payments to my paypal account and started sending out teh goods.
It may be the first time that I have used Gammadyne Mailer but it won't be the last.

Pros: It works, meaning it allows me to send out large batches of emails at throttled rates and not get kicked off the email server for overloading their system.

Cons: It is a complex program and I work alone on this type matter so it was difficult for me to learn what to do. I never actually got throttling down and stable and so bought a more comprehensive email service which was more tolerant to the volume.

Overall: I bought a copy of Gammadyne several years ago and mail some church related mailings. I work alone and have the usual problems of someone who works alone and doesn't have other people to ask questions of. I haven't sent you money in a long time so don't expect you to have a lot of time to help me.

A first problem with rating this software is what you are comparing it to. I have never seen other software to know how it relates to others. Characteristically when you are using an unusual software, everything you have to figure out is difficult.

I have figured out how to send my emails (about 10,000/month) from my Access database and so it is stable at this time, which is what I expected it to do.

That being said the program performs well at doing what I purchased it for. I suspect it is actually capable of a lot more, but in my isolated situation it is difficult for me to learn more how to use it. For this reason the ratings are probably more about me than the program.

I have the program on a stationary computer for sending out the big email batches. What I would like to know now is if I can apply one of my 3 remaining upgrades to install it on my portable computer to send small batches "on the fly" so to speak, or if I need to buy a separate copy.

I would definitely recommend the program to anyone who needed to send out batches of emails.

Recommendations to other buyers: Good program, but it will be difficult to implement unless you are a computer expert or have someone who can walk you through it.

Benton, I'm curious why you rated Customer Support one star. You never actually mentioned any experience with our support. We give users free email support, and we answer all inquiries. To answer your question, the five activations that come with the license are not limited to any one user or machine. You do not need to buy another license. As for throttling, you simply need to enable the "Universal Domain Throttle" on the Throttles branch.

Pros: the feature set they strive for, the combination of scripting features plus a less technical means of building email jobs.

Cons: Some features are buggy or at least have side effects that are frustrating to work around.

Overall: for the most part, if we're simply using it to pull a stock form from a database and have it merge values and send email, it does that quite well. We have more problems when we use the HTML editor to build messages for one-off jobs. For instance, the functions and scripting command embedded into the HTML code are not protected against the HTML validator, turning scripts like [[ if Age > 17 ]] into [[ if Age > 17 ]]. This requires our end users to use the raw editor which they are not as comfortable using and reading HTML.

The process of marking invalid email addresses is also buggy and doesn't appear to always work. In our use, we've found that less than 50% of the records with bad email addresses fill the integer field we've designated with a value of 1 to tell the email address was bad.

Vendor Response

by Gammadyne on November 09, 2016

To avoid the WYSIWYG editor having problems with the < > characters, use the compare() function instead. For example, [[if Age > 17]] would become [[if compare(Age, 17) = 1]] Please send us a copy of the project file so that we can take a look at the invalid email addresses problem.

Pros: Pretty easy to understand.

Cons: I only use it once a month and I forget the steps so more my failing than the softwares.

Overall: I bought Gammadyne way back when as I needed something that would allow me, an almost total illiterate when it comes to software, the ability to send a page I had set up on my webpage, directly to my customers. In a very short amount of time, together with direction from the support staff, this was accomplished and I used it to send a monthly mail-out to customers. Over time this fell away and only after a period of some months did I go back in order to use it again. By now all the technology had changed and it was no longer possible to lift a page and send it as it had been. After trying various other packages offered by some of the web page builders I dug out Gammadyne and reinstalled it and ungraded it and returned to the support staff for direction. Once again clear and concise information and suggestions was forthcoming and I was up and running in no time. The only reason I give it 4 stars for functionality is because I only use a small part of the software and yet I know it can do so much but I cannot comment on the extras.

Recommendations to other buyers: I am fairly sure if you need to do something for what it is built there is a way. Just ask the support team.

Comments: I have been using Gammadyne Mailer for over 10 years, accross two different businesses. The features offered are amazing. We have evaluated other Mailer software, but never found anything as powerful as Gammadyne. Although the interface has a bit of a learning curve, once you get the hang of it it's easy to navigate.

The most powerful feature is by far the database connectivity. Again, not for the novice, the connectivity allows us to manage the lists centrally within a database, as well as log a variety of different variables.

Definately worth a try!

Comments: I have been using Gammadyne Mailer for well over a decade to perform in-house email blasts and list maintenance. It is stable, which has always been absolutely key. It has consistently improved in features and usability over the years as well. Key features are stability, ease of use, flexibility and ability to track emails. Support is always very timely and pleasant, as well. I appreciate the license system - it has allowed me to install on separate systems, upgrade when I wanted to. Top notch.
