Major Features:

Bounced Mail Handling: Once configured, it will (if so desired) automatically track and handle bounced mail. Alternatively, you can manually handle bounced mail if you so wish.

Automatic "Unsubscribe" Link Creation: If the user receiving the mail has access to unsubscribing, a secure link to unsubscribe themselves from the mailing list will be automatically added to the bottom of the mail. It does not require the user to be logged in, so it complies with spam policies set forth by mail providers.

Mail History: Each past sent mail can be viewed at any time from the front-end.

Advanced Subscription Management: Users can quickly and easily (un)subscribe from the mailing list via the mailing list directory, or the admin can manually change the subscription status in the AdminCP.

Bounced Mail Threshold: When an admin-configured number of mails bounce from the same email address, the user is automatically removed from mailing lists and all other email-related vBulletin features, and notified via PM what happened to their account, as well as directions to change their email addresses.

I'll be the first to reply saying awesome work! A mailing mod that complies with spam rules has been long needed by my community and this does that perfectly. Nice work!

I'm still on vb3 tho, so will a vb3 version be made as well :)

BaanFarsang 02 Jul 2011 07:48

It make the mod of "product-blackthorn_whos_online_admincp" and some above link of "Check Version For All Hacks" have been disappeared.

I think it's on the cards. :)

Nice work, it is useful !
I have a suggestion I want to translate your product into Vietnamese, Are you agree ?

mokonzi 02 Jul 2011 16:05

I think translations can be uploaded to this forum: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/forums/91-Translations

Belazor or Decado would know more about it when they come back online, though I'm sure they'll welcome all translations. :)

Can someone please educate me on the differences between this VbMail mod and ForoMail

Thank you!

thanks i will test it

Thank you!

Support, coding practices and overall product quality. Those are the primary reasons I'd choose this mod. I can't say I've used ForoMail (as I got ripped off there on the last mail mod the author wrote and never got a reply when they moved to this one), but I have used the old mail mod and a couple other of those mods and well, the code is (IMO) really bad.

On the support aspect of things, the author of Foromail has (over the years) pulled her mods from vb.org a couple of times, rarely answers support questions on her site, always some reason (whether or not they might be valid is anyone's guess), but regardless of the reasons, support lacks there. (I just checked the foromail thread and the mod was free, but now isn't and this time there's yet another reason as to why, again, regardless of the validity of reasons, it's always SOMETHING)

Product Quality, DBT takes users suggestions into consideration and more often than not, they get implemented. They are fast to fix issues and honestly, are easily the best vB mod company I have purchased from (which is why I own many of their products).

These are just my personal opinions and observations from using the DBT products for over a year now I think and also from my personal interactions with their staff. Take 'em how you will. =)

silpher 03 Jul 2011 00:28

how to send mail using it?

kameraderie 03 Jul 2011 08:42

It will be cool to use this with a feature to send automatic Private Message notification to each users

Alfa1 03 Jul 2011 12:31

Very nice to see somethign like this.

How does this addon decide which bounces to act upon? Is it only the number of bounces or does this actually check why an email is bouncing? Even if thats just for email delayed, inbox full and other trivial bounces?

What effect do bounces have on other vbulletin emails to the user? (birthdays, notifications, member email, etc, etc.) If it doesn't affect this, then it only decreases bounced email problems, but doesnt resolve it. Websites would still get blacklisted as spammers if email is still sent to inactive email accounts.

mokonzi 03 Jul 2011 14:22

vBMail has a threshold feature, meaning an email address can bounce x amount of times before it will be unsubscribed. It uses the standard bounce header to control what it classes as 'real' bounces, but also (as it uses an IMAP email address) list all emails coming to the bounce email address and allows you to manually mark it as 'bounced' mail (for example mailbox full problems don't count as a bounced mail, but you could set it to bounced after the 72 hours mail that often comes).

Once it's marked a user as bounced and processed them (by hourly cron jobs) it then unsubscribes them from all mail lists AND turns off all the email related features within vB's standard install (I'm not sure how it would fare with any non DBTech mod's email features atm).

DragonByte Tech 04 Jul 2011 18:19

Not yet, in the future we will be looking to adding support for more types of mailing lists, and that's when we'll be looking at importers :)

Thanks Mokonzi. Thats very helpful. Could you elaborate on how it use the bounce header to define a bounce? Does it look for certain phrases? Many bounce headers do not have useful information anymore these days and many email providers use their own system/way to alert about bounced email.

Once vbmail marks a user as having an invalid email account, then is there a possibility for the admin to restrict the account? Such accounts are mainly from inactive users or from spammers / trolls.
My site benefited greatly from restricting accounts with inactive email addresses. Spam and trolling went down drastically.

doopz 05 Jul 2011 10:21

Great! Will be testing this out later this week

The most common form of bounced mail is one that sends back all the headers that were sent with the original mail.

vBMail adds a specific header which it then checks for in the bounced mail body. If found, it does some validation checks, and if it's valid it flags it as a bounced mail.

Those bounces that do not follow this standard are either discarded (Automatic mode) or flagged as Unknown Mail (Manual mode).

For maximum "cleanliness" you would set it to Manual mode, then manually edit each mail that did not follow the aforementioned standard, ensuring the mail address is correct (for instance, mails that have been delayed 24/48/72 hours will show as originating from [email protected] instead of the bouncee) and setting the bounce flag to yes.

That is not currently possible, due to the fact that there's a chance for false positives (i.e. people using their own domain name's emails, and their site had a temporary problem, or their data center has issues receiving mails from any IP from another data center - this is a real concern, we had this exact issue with Mokonzi himself over there) which would have an adverse effect on a forum.

Can I ask whether its possible for people to sign up to this mailing list without been a forum member?

DragonByte Tech 11 Jul 2011 14:17

It is not, though a future Pro version will support external mailing lists :)

Swaping to port 993 with SSL has removed the error - brilliant support Fillip :)

I have upgraded to the new version and when I "view subscribed users" or "view unsubscrided users" the usernames a blank.
Will I have to recreate these mailing lists?

mcyates 20 Jul 2011 12:56

Just added a mailing list with everyone subscribed by default. Wrote and email sent it, received nothing. Also when I look at the "[View Subscribed Users]" all it shows is [Unsubscribe] instead of a username and it says there are 1,433 total entries.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Does the bounce mail work on e-mail confirmation links and other stock vb features? Thanks

CK 31 Jul 2011 19:44

When a users email is removed from the mailing list and a PM is sent, can you nominate the account this is sent from? With Foromail it was hard coded to be UserID 1, took me a while to find the relevant code.

Ah smart :)

Can the newsletters be automatically generated like the way Foromail worked? You could just set some options and then schedule a recurring email once a week or whatever.

DragonByte Tech 31 Jul 2011 20:01

Not currently, it's one of the planned features for the future though.

Will this mod include any forum details automatically.

New posts
New members
Polls
CMS content

You get the ideal, or do I have to add all those myself?

I was using Commbul but since the upgrade it stopped working for me.

DragonByte Tech 04 Aug 2011 01:06

It does not add any such details no, we plan to make Widget support for content like that as a Pro feature in the future :)

I think it would be very interesting for many communities.

Are you using a 3rd party plugin manager? It looks like your product manager is incapable of correctly running install scripts :p

You might want to try a reinstall.

You might want to try a reinstall.


Fillip

Never thought of that. yes i am. Let me disable it and try reinstall. I'll let you know in just a moment :D

Well, the mailing list problem is solved (but had exec that bd query for the 'external' column anyway), but the member email editing in CP remains :(

DragonByte Tech 15 Aug 2011 01:01

Well the problem isn't this mod - or you'd be seeing 5 pages of people complaining about this error.

No doubt about that neither i said that :) Just asked for help and thank you for it :up:
Member email edit in CP solved.

But i have another question, isn't supposed to have all member in mailing list if selected in Default Subscribed option?

DragonByte Tech 15 Aug 2011 01:25

It wouldn't have, because of the aforementioned error. Delete the mailing list and re-create it, then it will work :)


Fillip

pedroenf 15 Aug 2011 01:50

It worked :) Thanks

Having a problem with the Editor; I'm presuming that all controls should be showing when creating mail and not just two arrows, and I'm presuming that there may be a problem with my installation (I've disable all hacks except vbMail and still get the same result). Any pointers where to look next would be appreciated. Image attached shows what I'm seeing. Thanks in advance for any help.

Have you customised any templates? We've received no reports of similar issues appearing on 4.1.5 (and we're running it on DBTech as well), so I'm rather stumped...

Thanks for getting back to me Fillip. I've got one or two minor customised templates. I'll have a root around and see what I find :) Cheers, Dave.

Mailing system by vBMail. Copyright DragonByte Technologies Ltd.

DragonByte Tech 27 Aug 2011 18:12

It is not possible to translate that at this time, sorry :(

I have set up a test mailing list where only Admins should be able to subscriber. But new members are automatically joining it when they register. Same goes for another mailing list where I have it so only Premium Members should be able to join.

Screenshot of how the mailing list settings:

Also when sending the emails out does the browser have to be open or are the emails scheduled and then sent by a cron?

Could you please re-post this over at our support forums? I'm massively swamped with a new version of our site's shopping cart system, so I won't be able to look into this for a few days, in which time it may be buried already.

The browser has to stay open until it redirects you back to the mailing list directory. After which, the vBulletin mailqueue system takes over :)

SeanMT 03 Sep 2011 23:03

Thanks for the reply. I have had to uninstall the mod as it was causing issues with the Paid Subscription system.

DragonByte Tech 06 Sep 2011 15:23

Those issues have been fixed in a hotfix, but I'm not sure if they made it to the Lite version yet.

I have a newsletter set up and working great.
I have registered users checked as default subscribed but all newly registered members are not being subscribed. I have to create a new newsletter to make sure all members get added but this would reactivate members who have unsubscribed.

Is this by design or can newly registered members be added automatically?

DragonByte Tech 13 Sep 2011 17:31

The flag is working fine for me in my local test build, there's an update coming out today so maybe that'll fix it for you :)

Fillip

Thanks Fillip I will wait for the update.

Just for clarification, in case I was not describing the issue properly.: When I create a newsletter it adds all registered users fine but anyone who registers on the site after the creation of the newsletter does not get added as subscribed.

DragonByte Tech 14 Sep 2011 03:29

vBMail v1.1.3
Fix: Notification links should now hopefully work with vBSEO even when its "Rewrite Member URLs" setting set to No
Fix: Any un-recorded hotfixes since the last version released.
Change: You should now be able to change -some- permissions for usergroups that were previously unaccessible
Change: The products now support the Product URL and Version Check features of the vBulletin Product Manager


Fillip

CharlieDelta 14 Sep 2011 03:49

Hi Fillip I applied the update and newly registered users are still not showing up in the subscribed list.:confused:

DragonByte Tech 14 Sep 2011 03:51

They will not be retroactively added, so that's not unexpected :)

Fillip

I thought this might be the case.
So to make sure I get all new members added I have to constantly create new mailing lists. Doesn't this defeat the purpose of unsubscribing?

DragonByte Tech 14 Sep 2011 04:49

No it doesn't mean that :p

You can try unticking default subscribed, saving, re-ticking it and saving again.

I added another hotfix just now to deal with email verification, as you never told me if you had that enabled so I forgot to check that, but I believe that should be working now :)


Fillip

DragonByte Tech 14 Sep 2011 05:08

If you got a SQL error applying the previous hotfix, grab the new zip, as I updated part of the email verification code.


Fillip

brandon515 14 Sep 2011 18:08

Does this mod create the newsletters for you...in other words, can you tell it to send the newsletters to include recent threads from specified forums?

Also, does it allow for scheduling...like send them every 7 days at a specified time?

Thanks

Thanks Fillip.
Unticking and saving the re-ticking worked.:up: I have not applied the hotfix yet however.
The answer is yes, I do require email confirmation.:D
