1. How to add special "Reply-to" email different from "From"?

2. How can we handle statistics of clicks? Is it possible to automaticaly add some get parameters to all links in newsletter so we can use it later trough Google Analytics or similar tool?

3. Is there an automatic blacklisting or we need to do it manually for every bounced email?

1. At the moment you only can set for every nl list an email sender - a different Reply-to is not supported. Do you need that?

2. At the moment not. But we have already some discussions about that.
Their are different possiblilties.
- get parameters http://example.com/lnlink?nl-statistic-param
- a special nl link http://../newsletter/link/nl-statistic-param?url=http://example.com/lnlink?nl-statistic-param ( so we could track internaly, too )
- short urls http://example.com/newsletter/shortlink/123464648434164 => redirects to a link stored in a seperate db table

We are happy about any new ideas.

We are also thinking about to have the possibility to manual change the rendering of the newlsetteroutput. We think about a plug in system (hooks).

3. Blacklisting is for us somebody how never get a email again from the newsletter system. Bounced mails are only bounces and of course they do not get an email again but are not blacklisted.
We have an automatically boucehandling. The system can connect imap and pop3 and check if there are bouncemails in it. At the moment you can do it only over the admin. This feature needs approvement in the future

1. Yes. Well, I can hack of course, but I think it is very usefull to have 2 email: one as a sender which handles bounces too, and other as a reply-to which will be used by client for getting replies.

2. There are 2 separate issues:
- to know if newsletter is opened by user (partially solved by image beacon)
- to know how much traffic is done to web pages (either by external tool like gAnalytics or internally by newsletter extension)

I think you should support all of that :)
Having statistics internally could be very complicated, but supporting gAnalytics should be rather easy: add an attribute for google channel code and concatenate ever link with get param.

Rendering hooks would be nice tool for customizing this, yes.
