Templates Axon includes templates you can use to get started quickly and also gives you the ability to create your own templates and share with others. Dynamic PDF & Attached Files Axon not only makes it easy to attach files to the emails you send but you can also have Axon include dynamically generated PDF files created using the OnyakTech PDF Reports module.
Auto-Link Tracking Axon can track when people click links in your emails and now it will automatically scan your email for links and convert them to trackable links before your email is sent.  This is a big time saver! Drip Email Marketing (Threaded) With Threaded Campaigns, the focus is on each individual in the recipients list more so than the Newsletter Type. Instead of the entire recipient list receiving the same email (personalized or not), each person has their own location on a thread (a thread is a series of emails) that indicates what emails they have received, what they will receive next and when. 
Auto-Response Emails With Axon you can create a campaign that will respond to emails sent to you. You can have Axon respond to all emails sent to you or only when specific key words exist in the Subject or Body of the email that was sent to you. List  Server List campaign type allows you to setup a group of people who can collaborate via emails. Any email sent to the email address specified in a campaign will automatically be forwarded to everyone on the campaign's recipient list. 
MHTML Optionally send emails in MHTML format.  This combines external content into the email itself so that emails can be read offline and will help prevent your emails from being marked as SPAM. Web-2-Mail Turn any web page into email.  Simply enter the web address to the page and Axon will convert it to email and send it to everyone in your campaign.
Mailing Lists Mailing lists are easy to maintain through the use of DNN Roles, Global Roles (Roles that exist in more than one portal), Custom Lists stored in your database, Opt-Ins and even a fixed list. Save/Load Campaigns Download entire email campaigns to a single file that can be used on another site or as a template for new campaigns. Swap with your friends and download additional campaigns from
Track Read Responses Axon contains a very robust read tracking system that uses modern techniques to bypass SPAM detection. Providing an extremely accurate read count tracking. Metrics Metrics are tracked and displayed on the Campaign Details screen. Total reads for the current run, total emails, total runs and more.
Opt-In Registration To handle Opt-Ins, Axon includes an additional module just for Opt-Ins. Registered or not, your visitors can easily subscribe to your email campaigns using AJAX enabled interfaces. Collecting the visitor's email address, first name, last name and the option to register the visitor to your site behind the scenes making this a very powerful and easy to use opt-in module. Complete Run History A complete history of every email run is stored and visible from the Runs tab on the Campaign Details screen. View the email content, date of the run and total number of emails published.
Easy Unsubscribe Visitors can opt-out of mailings using the Axon Opt-In module, or reply to your mailings with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject line. You even have the option to unregister the user from your site if they unsubscribe via email. Scheduling You can run your campaigns at any time or schedule them to run daily, weekly, monthly, once a year or on a specific date. With Axon, you no longer have to generate the TPS Report manually and you'll always get the memo. Setup your campaign once and you're done. Email content changes as your web site and/or database content changes.
Dynamic Personalized Email Generation One of the features that makes Axon stand out, is the ability to generate dynamic email content based on the recipient. By using information from a database, the recipient's profile or an RSS feed, you can provide custom email content automatically generated at the time of mailing. RSS & ATOM Support You don't need to be a developer to build dynamic content emails with Axon. Most modules and web sites provide RSS/ATOM Feeds. Just enter the Feed URL into your campaign and Axon will generate the content for you.
Ajax & Multi-threaded Support Ajax and multi-threaded support provide powerful processing without performance loss. Surveys Add Surveys directly into your emails. It's easy to setup and all responses are stored in your database.
Batch Processing Can't send more then 10,000 emails at a time? No problem. Just set the batch limit and Axon handles the rest by automatically generating batches for a run. Don't worry, restarting the server or the IIS Worker Process won't cause any loss of batch processing. Everything is stored in the database. Extend Axon
Axon contains additional methods specifically designed for use from external programs or modules. You can exert full control over Axon from within your own code.
