How to Migrate from Version 2 to Version 3

Attention: the automated migration is no longer available in the MailPoet plugin from version 3.95.0 on.

For migrating from MailPoet 2 to MailPoet 3 in current versions of MailPoet, we recommend exporting your subscribers from MailPoet 2 and importing them into MailPoet 3.

Before importing your subscribers, we strongly recommend running your exported list through a List Cleaning Service to ensure all invalid emails are removed.

If you have MailPoet version 3.94.0 or older

Upgrading to MailPoet 3 ( download on the repository) is very easy. The migration tool is only available the first time you install MailPoet 3.

With our handy migration tool, you can quickly copy over your subscribers, settings, and forms to MailPoet 3. You’ll need to recreate your email designs, but there’s no learning curve here. Just a friendly and familiar interface you know—only better.

Please note when you install the MailPoet 3 plugin, a separate plugin will be installed, so your existing MailPoet 2 plugin will continue to work. It means that both plugins can live side by side.

A migration tool will propose to migrate the following the first time you install version 3:

  1. Subscribers
  2. Lists
  3. Forms
  4. Settings

The following will not be transferred:

  1. Templates
  2. Post notifications
  3. Welcome emails
  4. Draft newsletters
  5. Archive of sent newsletters
  6. Stats

View a list of things to check after you have migrated.

Want to run the migration step again?

No problem. Go to  Settings > Advanced tab and click the "Reinstall from scratch" button.
