I don’t know if it’s only me and the emails I receive, but some messages don’t really need my attention – it’s not spam, just messages from friends that usually get answers like “I have seen that video 2 years ago.” or “Sorry, but I don’t have time for that.” and so on. I am sure you got the idea, but having a customizable autoresponder script at your disposal gets way beyond all the above – no need to tell you how useful can be such a thing for a business, right?
Leaving aside the features and Infinite Responder‘s ease of use, the most interesting part of this story is that most similar scripts, some of them sporting far less features, come for money. In fact, I think that most products that have anything to do with email campaigns, lead generation or newsletters are overpriced like hell, but let’s leave that and take a look at the official mumbo-jumbo now, shall we?
“Infinite Responder is an autoresponder & newsletter hybrid that allows you to send as many messages, as many emails to as many lists as you want. It can behave as both a sequential autoresponder and a newsletter mailer.”
With features like a full Web-based control panel, global blacklist, unlimited custom fields or email-based subscriptions, this GPL-licensed script requires a Web server with Apache or IIS, PHP 4.3+, MySQL 4+, the IMAP library (for bounce and mail checking) and, finally, Crontab (for scheduled mail sending). Well, I guess that’s all for today and I am sure some of you will find Infinite Responder to be a real treasure in a world of scams and overpriced piece of code. Good luck! 😉
