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.

vBMail will collect the bounced mail from your server and store it on your server - it's not supposed to be deleted from vBMail's database

Fillip, just wanted to say that I'm pretty impressed with this. I'll probably be buying a lifetime version shortly.

Have you given any thought to extending this to handle unsubscribing members from threads & forums as well, making it an all in one program?

It already does, if they reach the bounced mail threshold they will be unsubscribed from those parts as well to avoid future bounced mail

Whoa, really? It removes their thread / forum subscriptions? You should REALLY list that as a feature above then, that makes this a MUST HAVE. Great work, and thank you again for a good piece of software.

It doesn't remove them, simply turns off email notification for them

Removing them outright would be disruptive to users who then proceed to change their email address to a valid one.

Is there a way to have this automatically notify the member in question that their email has bounced?

Not straight away, but once they have reached the threshold they will receive a PM stating what has happened and what they need to do

Can the number of emails sent per hour be altered?

Our server has a limit off 200 and at the moment my email is being swamped with auto-responses saying mail cannot be sent

vBMail uses vBulletin's mailqueue system and I don't believe it supports email per hour limit at this time. Any modification that implements this (if it exists) will work with vBMail, though

Ah - that's a pity

Will the bounced message re-send of their own accord? We really do need to get mails sent out to get old members back on the site again, but to up the email limit will cost money we simply don't have

It will not, no.

There are plenty of shared hosts that don't impose an email per hour limit, so I suggest you shop around if your current host is unwilling to accomodate you

I tried but i had some odd behaviour:
i have to write on the editor without spaces like this

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

instead of:

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

There's a way to avoid this?
If i use spaces the newsletter appear messed up.
