User Manual

This manual has been written by the phpList community documentation team, individual volunteers, companies and phpList Ltd staff. 


This manual will teach you how to use Blink Mailer. It provides real life examples where possible and chapters are goal oriented. We hope you will come away from each chapter with inspiration and motivation as well as an education!

Target audience and assumptions 

The manual is aimed at users with average tech skills who are starting at the beginning with Blink Mailer.


Software is not static, it continuously changes. Blink Mailer is no different from other software, in that it is regularly updated to fix issues, add new features and respond to a changing environment of browsers and internet technology. This manual attempts to provide you with a guide to how Blink Mailer works, but the version you are using may be different from what is described here. The manual should help you to work Blink Mailer in a general way, but you may need to interpret it for your situation to make Blink Mailer do what you want it to do. 

How to use this manual

Most chapters will walk you through a task, with a screenshot for each stage. It may be that you only require assistance with one aspect of a task, in which case skip ahead. 


In this manual, words in Bold generally mirror the word in the application itself. Additionally, each level of a menu is signified with a >. If you need to go to Subscribers in the main menu, and then click Add new in the sub menu, the we would annotate this as Subscribers > Add new
