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.

This sounds like a nice mod, I got a query though. We do not send a lot of mails out but we do send the occasional birthday emails. Would this addon be able to handle the bounced emails from the birthday cron too ?

It should be possible, though I would very strongly not recommend using the same email as you use for actual communication (if you have already set up a separate "bounce" GMail account for your forum then I apologise for the emphasis, I just wanted to prevent possible data loss should you get it working) - vBMail will delete all the email it has collected from the mail server in order to speed up future fetching.

Without seeing an error message (you can see any connection errors by manually running the collect bounced mail scheduled task) I can't help, unfortunately

Thank you for the emphasis. We use seperate bounced mail account for gmail.

Here is the error:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


I guess imap function is different for gmail.

So isn't it possible to use VbMail with gmail?

Thanks..

From what I can tell, you entered 1 as the IMAP Port in DragonByte Tech: vBMail - Bounced Mail Settings.

Please correct that to 993, which is the correct port for connecting to GMail's IMAP server, then let me know if that works

I saw 1 and edited my post immediately after posting. 993 does not work.


I tried to enter "imap.gmail.com:993/ssl" and many combinations left port number blank if it helps. Thats why you saw 1 as the port. before my edit.

Ps. I tried vbmail with a regular imap server and collected emails.

Try these exact settings:

IMAP Host: imap.gmail.com
IMAP Port: 993
Use SSL: Yes

I'm not sure whether you just told me you tried to enter "imap.gmail.com:993" in the port field, but try these settings regardless

Problem was CFS firewall was blocking port 993 in my server. And when i open that port it collects them. Sorry about that, i couldnt think of firewall im using.

Now i collected bounced mails then i ran "Bounced Mail Threshold" it sent members pms and changed their setting. When i rerun it it sends same pms to these same users again and again in each "Bounced Mail Threshold" run. Shouldnt it send pm only once and process one member only once?

my "Bounced Mail Threshold" is 1

It will only send it to them once, unless for some reason it fails to set dbtech_vbmail_bounceflag to 1 for those users. Check that it has correctly flipped to 1 for those users

I've installed this and am running into a problem. We use google as our mail server with mail.(ourdomain).com aliased to google. I've set up a bounced email address - [email protected](ourdomain).com through google, but I'm not sure what to put in the vbmail settings in order to get this active and working. When I attempt to run the cron task for bounced mails, it times out and gives me weird error messages.

Thanks for the fast followup, I had to put the [email protected](ourdomain).com instead of just bounced in the email field. Sorry.

I have 180k users, with probably tens of thousands who are orphaned, spammers, etc. Is there going to be a way to mass delete bounced emails?
