Can I send my newsletter campaigns with this plugin?

No, this is not a newsletter tool, it just makes your emails beautiful but doesn’t send custom ones.

How can I remove the gap at the header of my Contact Form 7 emails?

Go to your Contact Form 7 email settings and change email type from HTML to text. WP HTML Mail will take care of the HTML.

Can a customize the HTML code of the email header?

There’s a filter to change the header HTML code. Just add this to your (child-)themes functions.php:

add_filter('haet_mail_header', function( $header ){
    return 'hello <strong>world</strong>';

Of course you can display HTML code, not just text.

Can a customize the HTML code of the email footer?

There’s a filter to change the footer HTML code. Just add this to your (child-)themes functions.php:

add_filter('haet_mail_footer', function( $header ){
    return 'hello <strong>world</strong>';

Can I add custom CSS code to my WordPress emails?

You can add your own CSS code for desktop and mobile. Just add this example to your (child-)themes functions.php and customize it:

add_filter( 'haet_mail_css_desktop', function( $css ){
    $css .= '  
                border-bottom: 2px solid green;
    return $css;

add_filter( 'haet_mail_css_mobile', function( $css ){
    $css .= '  
    return $css;

How to disable the template for some emails?

Find anything all emails have in common. It may be the sender, a word in the subject or something in the email body.
Then add this function to your (child-)themes functions.php and customize it. Return TRUE if the template should be used and FALSE if not.

// return true if you want to use a template for current mail
// return false if you want to leave the content of this email unchanged
add_filter( 'haet_mail_use_template', 'customize_template_usage', 10, 2 );
function customize_template_usage( $use_template, $mail ){
    // $mail['to'] ...
    // $mail['subject'] ...
    // $mail['message'] ...
    // $mail['headers'] ...
    // $mail['attachments'] ...
    return true;

Excellent compatibility with contact forms. The only thing I would have as a recommendation is to add the icons of social networks. Keep in that way!

Das Plugin ist perfekt für jeden der die WordPress Mails individuell gestalten will. Mit dem zusätzlichen Plugin für WooCommerce sind auch diese Mails einfach und schnell komplett neu gestaltet. Auch die Funktion Variablen auszuwählen und einzusetzen spart viel Aufwand.

This plugin is awesome. It's hard to imagine it being free considering the ability to completely customize every aspect of the template. Every function works flawlessly. A big thanks to the developer!

I had a project that required some very unusual use of woocommerce, basically a rewards site, part of the project required the order confirmation email to be customized and stripped of all mentions of money or payments. I searched long and hard for a plugin that offered the right capabilities for customizing the woocommerce automated emails. This was the only one I found that had the flexibility I required. This plugin was exactly what I needed and solved my problem on a tight deadline. I did have a little trouble with it, which I reached out to the developer(s) and he was very prompt in responding. Turns out it was a user error on my part, just something I overlooked in my haste, so the support wasn't necessary but great to know it was there if I had a real problem. I love this plugin and foresee myself using it again for future projects.
