BwPostman comes with a couple of plugins. Currently these are:

  • A plugin for enhanced personalization.
  • A plugin for subscription to the newsletter while an account for the website is created.
  • A Plugin to display mailing lists/user groups and number of recipients at footer of newsletter contained in package.

Enhanced personalization

Since version 2.0.0 there is beneath the former simple personalization a plugin for enhanced personalization for BwPostman. This plugin I s activated per default and needs no options.

While the simple personalization only enables the use of first and/or last name, You can use gender related personalization with the enhanced personalization plugin. There is not only a male text and a female text possible, You can also us a neutral text, if You want to address companies or subscribers without entered gender:

[bwpostman_personalize | "male text" | "female text" | "neutral text" ]

[bwpostman_personalize | "Dear Mr" | "Dear Mrs" | "Hello" ] [LASTNAME]


  • Between the opening square bracket and the following bwpostman_personalize there must not be any character, also no space!
  • The double quote must be entered. With this character the text to be inserted is determined. This allows to enter spaces before and after the text to insert. That implies further, that this character is not allowed in the text to insert.
  • Is no text entered, then there will not raise an error, but also nothing is inserted.



Since version 2.0.0 there is another plugin for BwPostman to automatically subscribe to selectable mailing lists while a user registers at the website. The plugin is deactivated per default.


With this plugin You are able to display the mailing lists and/or the user groups at the footer of the newsletter, to which the newsletter was sent to.

You may set, if the number of recipients per mailing list or user group shall be listed. This naturally only works, if the listing of mailing lists/user groups is activated.

Finally You can set, if the total of all recipients shall be displayed.

This works for preview, for test sending and certainly for real sending. At the preview and test sending the plugin cannot know, whether the real sending shall also go to unconfirmed subscribers. Thus the summary of recipients only counts confirmed subscribers. Archived subscribers never are counted, to them the newsletter is never sent.

Newsletter Content

This plugin is available since version 4.2.0 of BwPostman. With this plugin BwPostman is able to use selected/tested content plugins of Joomla!® at the newsletter.

Because I don't know how the individual content plugins behave with BwPostman, I use whitelisting. Content plugins, which I have tested with BwPostman, are added to this list. If You use a content plugin in Your Joomla! articles, which You use in BwPostman, which are not supported by now, ask at the forum. I will see what I can do.


BwPostman Webservices

This plugin makes it possible, that for the plugin BwPostman TimeControl there is no need to use the password of the cron user to start the cron server, but the cron server now may start by using the API of BwPostman. For this it needs routes to the API of BwPostman, which are added by this plugin.

This plugin exists since version 4.3.0 of BwPostman and is needed by the plugin BwPostman TimeControl since version 2.0.0.

BwPostman TimeControl

This plugin is not provided by the package BwPostman. It can be acquired by purchase.

With this plugin it is possible to send newsletters at a specified point of time. The sending is processed at background.


The plugin BwPostman TimeControl only works and only installs, if the module cURL for php is installed and activated at Your web server!

You can figure out, whether the module cURL is installed at the web server by search for curl at the back end at System → System Information → PHP-Information. Do You find it, You are able to use this plugin. If You can't find cURL, contact Your provider (or change the provider), to be able to use this plugin.
