Adobe does not plan to further enhance of open/bounced emails sent by the AEM SMTP service. The recommendation is to leverage Adobe Campaign and its AEM integration .
E-mail marketing (for example, newsletters) are an important part of any marketing campaign as you use them to push content to your leads. In AEM, you can create newsletters from existing AEM content as well as add new content, specific to the newsletters.
Once created, you can send newsletters to the specific group of users either immediately or at another scheduled time (through the use of a workflow). In addition, users can subscribe to newsletters in the format that they choose.
In addition, AEM lets you administer the newsletter functionality, including maintaining topics, archiving newsletters, and viewing newsletter statistics.
In Geometrixx, the newsletter template automatically opens the email editor. You can use the email editor in other templates that you want to send emails in, for example, invitations. The email editor displays anytime a page is inherited from mcm/components/newsletter/page .
This document describes the basics of creating newsletters in AEM. For more detailed information on how to work with e-mail marketing, see the following documents:
If you update email providers, do a flight test, or send a newsletter, these operations fail if the newsletter is not published to the Publish instance first or if the Publish instance is not available. Be sure to publish your newsletter and make sure the Publish instance is up and running.
