Email is most probably older than Internet but as with Internet, it is still highly relevant today. Now, there are a lot of tools that might supersede email such as Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites that makes email look archaic. However, as old as it may seem, email is still a powerful communication tool. As an open source community software user, it will be even more useful.
JomSocial team has created a plugin that will help you to leverage the power of email. This plugin will synchronize your user's contacts with iContact, one of the popular email service providers. Now you can send automated welcome emails, scheduled emails based on days of subscription, and you can keep you members up to date with events and news.
