Before reading this document, make sure to install CyberPanel and create your first website. The first step towards Email Marketing is an email list. CyberPanel can accept email lists in 2 formats.
In this article, we will see how we can create, update, verify and maintain a healthy email list.
Main > Websites > List Websites » Launch
Once launched, scroll down to Email Marketing
click Create Lists.
First, you need to upload your email list (.csv or .txt file) using file manger, so if you have uploaded your email list file in the document root of your site, its path will look like /home/your-domain.com/public_html/email-list.csv
This will load all emails from the file.
You can verify or add more emails to your existing lists.
Note: If you load a new .csv or .txt files to your existing email list, only new addresses will be added. Duplicates will be automatically handled by CyberPanel.
After clicking Manage Lists. You will see:
1. Delete This List
Will delete the currently selected email list.
2. Verify This List
Verifying emails is the process of knowing if emails in your lists actually exist or not. If your Email Lists are small (2-5K) emails, then you may not get into trouble. Because some provider consider email verification process as potential spam and you can get your IP blacklisted.
Just click Verify This List, and the verification process will start. For verified emails, Verification Status will change to Verified, and Verification Failed for emails that fail to verify (means they don't exist or their email server does not allow verification transaction).
3. Add More Emails
Clicking Add More Emails, will allow you to load more email addresses to your currently selected email list.
CyberPanel v1.7.3 and above have a dedicated tool called Email Marketing. Let see what this tool can do in a nutshell.
Email lists can be uploaded in 2 formats.
You can also add more emails to existing email lists using the same formats specified above.
Verifying emails is the process of knowing if emails in your list actually exist or not. If your Email Lists are small (2-5K) emails, then you may not get into trouble. Some providers consider email verification as potential spam and you can get your IP blacklisted.
However, this tool lets you verify emails on your list, if you re-run email verification only new or failed emails will be checked, verified emails are not checked again.
Sending mail requires a mail server. You can use your local mail server or add remote servers as SMTP hosts. While sending mail you can choose which SMTP host is used to send an email.
You can save your existing emails (HTML or Plain Text) as templates in CyberPanel. Any online tool can be used to create your email template. Once email template is created, it can be sent to your email lists using SMTP Hosts.
By default Email Marketing tool is enabled for all new users, however, you can disable them for selected users.
1. Click Email Marketing from the left sidebar.
2. Select users to disable the Email Marketing feature.
3. Once disabled, the user can not see Email Marketing related elements on his/her website launcher.
The above-mentioned elements will be hidden if email marketing is disabled. In further articles, we will see how we can make use of all these features to send emails.
