The beta will continue to run until the end of September, allowing users to access all the benefits of the upgraded application for free. The new Newsletter Application is an enormous upgrade addressing feedback from customers and feature requests. The new features include: Improved user interface: Set up your newsletters quickly and easily Import your recipient lists effortlessly Enhanced A/B testing tool: Create and test multiple newsletter versions Choose the best performing version to send to your recipients Pre-built and designed templates: Access basic and professionally designed email templates Customize your emails quickly and easily New spam checker for improved deliverability: Increase deliverability to the inbox Check to see if you email contains common spam signals Starting October 1st, new pricing for the SendGrid Newsletter Application will take effect with a cost of $0.25 per thousand newsletter emails sent in addition to your monthly package price. The old newsletter application will no longer be supported, but all of your recipient lists, historical campaign data, and sent campaigns will be migrated to the new version. You will have access to all of your previous campaigns in the new tool even after October 1st. We are excited by the overwhelmingly positive feedback the public beta of the new Newsletter Application has received so far, and we are dedicated to continuously making improvements to our platform and applications. Thanks to everyone who has test driven the new application so far, and for those who haven’t checked it out, take a tour!
