More Security for Your Emails and Improved Positioning of Static Blocks. Welcome Advanced Newsletter and Z-Blocks Updates
Recent days were abundant in updates and we are glad to notify you about them. We start from our two really valuable extensions: Advanced Newsletter and Z-Blocks.
The Advanced Newsletter extension allows you to obtain great power and desirable flexibility over your email marketing activities and carry them out efficiently. This module allows you to enhance subscribers base, create exclusive mailing lists, segment subscribers by multiple attributes, create individual e-mail templates, give more security to your subscribers, send emails from any SMTP server, and much more. The new 2.4 version of the Advanced Newsletter extension comprises several great features.
“Email doesn’t look nice? View it in your browser” variable
When creating an email template, you can insert the above variable into its content. It contains an external link, which allows your recipients to open the email in their browsers to be sure they did not miss any valuable information.

Add SSL to SMTP Configuration
We’ve added one more cryptographic protocol for advanced security of your emails. You can choose it in the Advanced Newsletter -> SMTP Configuration – > Add New -> Fields -> Use TLS or SSL drop-down list.

The Z-Blocks Magento extension allows you to change your store layout without any changes in layout files. You can place static blocks containing any promotional or service information on any page of your site and set up any display intervals. Check the recent update of this module.

We’ve extended the blocks placement and now you can choose between Catalog and Product, Product Only, and Catalog Only block positions in the General Information section. Forget about creation any complicated rule conditions to show blocks in catalog only.
