- Ultimate control over design of templates and messages. Sendblaster provides great templates, but you can also design your own from scratch, with total control.
- Lots of options for sending your outgoing messages, including your organization's SMTP server, a third party's SMTP server, "direct" sending from your desktop, and many more configuration options.
- Sendblaster is even easier than Microsoft Word for "merging" data into your outgoing messages.
- Once you pay the affordable price for the Sendblaster software, there are no more ongoing subscription fees or volume-based per-message charges.
- The user interface could be more polished. It's very easy to use, but the appearance of the user interface looks a little old fashioned for a desktop software. Of course recipients don't see that interface, so that is not very consequential.
- Rendering HTML source code
- Managing mailing lists
- You can control the speed of email broadcasts
- Ease of importing lists
- Inability to strip junk code generated from pasting from Microsoft Office applications
- Cannot export successful send list
- Does not come with responsive templates
