Fillip,

Great job with the bounced email handling. I'm not sure you understand what a big deal this is. Building on your code, we can now block a lot of outgoing emails that will bounce.

I just created an add-on modification (the Poor Man's Bounced Email Handler) that uses your vBMail as a basis to block "new post" notifications. I hope you don't mind and that people find it useful.

I had a quick look at your code, unless I'm reading it wrong I think it's already covered by vBMail :)

The hook you used is executed in exec_send_notification, and the query only returns users that match
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

whereas part of vBMail's "remove the user from everything email related" cron job code is setting that column to 0 - so in theory it shouldn't fetch users vBMail has dealt with :)

For the record; we'll never give permission to re-use our code :)

There might be a bug. Without my small bit of code, emails were still being sent out to users whose emails were bouncing. With my code, those emails stopped going out.

vBMail v1.1.7:

Hi, does this mod have a HTML feature by any chance?
That admins can add HTML into their pm's to users?

DragonByte Tech 27 Sep 2012 16:21

vBMail does not deal with PM sending at all.

The mails you send in the Mailing Lists created by this mod are HTML enabled, though :)

Aha!

Yes, my bad, I meant email - I'm also looking for a PM HTML enabled system too and was thinking about it when typing this out :D

Thanks for the quick reply and info! ;)

What exactly happens when a bounced email is detected? Several older mods handled this by disabling all their subscriptions and email notifications, and sending the user a PM why that has been done.

Does this handle bounced emails from things like thread subscriptions, or only newsletters sent out?

That's exactly what this mod does :)

It can only automatically handle emails sent via the script itself, I believe. However, it will still collect other bounced email and store them (presuming you have not enabled Automatic handling, in which case it will discard them).

In addition, we have a new feature in private Beta over at DBTech which seems to be correctly handling ALL bounced email :)

I'm really only interested in the bounced mail handling. I'm even willing to pay for that, but I assume private Beta means it's not even in a paid version?

I'm currently looking at this mod to see whether it can produce HTML emails with images inserted from vBulletin 4 in much the same way that e.g. MailChimp or Vertical Response can.

The responses do say "html enabled" but I'm not clear what this means. Does this mean that you can design an email in this mod once it's installed in vBulletin 4, add some images and then send? Or do you have to manually add the html code yourself?

Correct, but it will be rolling out to all versions in the not too distant future as it seems pretty stable :)

This mod uses the CKEditor as its editor, there's absolutely not a HTML designer included. You should be able to paste HTML code, though :)

Does this send messages to all usergroups on the forum or via email?

Is this a major issue? What should I be changing?

This means you may not be able to configure usergroup permissions for this mod correctly, as Suhosin will in its infinite wisdom decide to crop off the remaining form elements until it's below it's arbitrary limits.

The error message advises you what to change - if that doesn't work, you will need to contact your host for advice on how to configure Suhosin as I unfortunately don't know :(
