Uses

vBMail is the perfect solution for any forum who wish to send out large quantities of mail to users on a mailing list. It lets admins and users have fine-grained access to subscriptions, and also automatically handles bounced mail.

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.

Open /dbtech/vbmail/includes/class_dm_message.php and comment out both instances of the following code:

Feel free to delete that datastore entry via
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

to save some database space

Thanks for this fix. After a while, it was also producing Fatal Error Allowed memory size of ... exceeded error as well.

There's a way to avoid this?
If i use spaces the newsletter appear messed up.
That's probably because we convert new lines to <br /> tags. This is essential in order to allow non-HTML only mails to be sent.

Unfortunately to my knowledge there is no way around this

Could you please re-create this as a new bug report over at our forum? Sadly it's too easy for posts here on vb.org to get lost / missed

Thanks

Fillip I have a question about the unsubscribe part. When they click the link at the bottom of the email, what happens next? Does it take them to a page where they enter their email address and click a button? Does it send them another email with another link to click?

I'm having serious problems with my host (hostmonster) and finding an appropriate opt out solution

Hmmm does this handle ALL outgoing emails? IE birthday emails, thread subscriptions, new pm notifies? Or are those still handled by vBulletin? Reason I ask is that hostmonster requires a 1 click opt out for all emails. Meaning that after the user clicks the link in the email, they enter their email addy in a box and click a link/button and be completely done with the unsubscribing process.

They will be unsubscribed as soon as they click the link, no need to enter email address or click anything else on the page

No vBMail doesn't handle those. Also, those emails are opt-in so they should be exempt from those requirements.

I agree with you Fillip that the birthday emails and such are all opt in and should be exempt, but my retarded host says no.

I don't send out mass emails so I probably won't install this mod, but if it's like any of your other mods I'm sure it rocks Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

You need to delete the files from this mod once you've uninstalled it.

Yeah, you can send HTML email

You can test it by creating a new mailing list only you have access to, then send a test HTML email
