 +====== How to set up a mailing list with the MailPoet plugin ======
  
 +Setting up multiple mailing lists is simple and easy with the **MailPoet** plugin. MailPoet is also free up until you hit 2000 subscribers.
 +
 +<note important>​You will need to be an administrator to install this plugin</​note>​

 +===== Installing the Plugin =====

 +Go to **MailPoet >> Settings**
 +
 +Click on **Forms**

 +{{ :​wordpress:​mailpoetform.png?​direct&​200 |}}
 +
 +A default form will already exist, so you can edit that or create new form. You can have as many forms as you like. On each form you can edit what fields are available and whether or not they are mandatory. Once you have a field you are ready to use, it can be added to your page either through a **widget** or a **shortcode** in the **Page Editor** from the **Visual Editor Toolbar**.
 +
 +Whenever the form is filled out, the user will automatically be added to the list associated with the form.

 +Standard Newsletters are sent out only once, whereas Automatic are sent out on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. You can also choose to have Automatic Newsletters send out immediately when a specific event occurs.
 +
 +Once you have chosen the type of Newsletter and given it a name, you can start designing it.
