You can manage campaigns by navigating to Admin > Promotions > Campaigns. To create a new campaign, click on Add New. Then, you can determine a Name for your campaign for internal reference, a Subject for the generated e-mail, and the HTML Body that will be the content of the e-mail. The content can be equipped with message tokens that will be dissolved at run-time. For more information about message tokens, see the description below. In the tab Stores, you can limit the campaign to single stores. Once you've saved the campaign, you can send it to all of your subscribers by clicking on Send Mass Email, or just send a test e-mail to yourself by clicking Send Test Mail after you've entered a valid e-mail address. Of course, sending a test e-mail to yourself is strongly recommended, as you'll have a preview of the campaign before sending it to thousands of customers.

To manage newsletter subscribers, navigate to Admin > Promotions > Newsletter Subscribers. There, you'll see a list of all the customers who have subscribed to receive newsletters from you. You can search this list for certain subscribers and activate or deactivate them manually, and you can see when they subscribed to your mailing list. If you have managed your newsletter campaigns with another tool up to now, you can import your subscriber list into SmartStore.NET via CSV. The list to be imported must contain values in the first column, which holds the e-mail address of each subscriber. The list can also hold two additional values per line. For example, the second column could contain a value indicating whether the subscriber is active, and the third could refer to a particular store (i.e. display the corresponding store ID). Headings for the columns aren't necessary.
