OK, but what happend is this: When everything was setup right (I guessed) I ran the Scheduled task for vBulletinMailChimp. Took quite some time (1000 members) and ended in an MySQL error. But guessed that most of the mails we're sent. Pretty soon I got some MailChimp-Yippeee mails for new signups.

But I wondered what would happen when the scheduled task would run the next time. So half an hour later, I manually ran it again. And OOPS, I noticed that it starting to send out all (??) mails again. That's ofcourse not what I want, and especially not what my forummembers want
The sched.task is turned off now.

What can I expect that this plugin does?
And what happens with new forum registrations when the sched.task is turned off?

Hope for some extra info on this promising plugin ...
Thanks in advance!

I did come across that one too, but since it didn't mention anything on vB4.x I guessed it only supported vB3.

Have that same feeling, unfortunately. Especially since it seems pretty buggy to me.
A reaction by @vBtise would be highly appreciated.

I think it works on vb4 as well.

I don't find it buggy, but there is one very important piece missing for me.
I need to have a radio button or checkbox that asks if the person would like to sign up to the newsletter or not. Right now this is done by checking "receive e-mails from admin". I need there to be a line in the forum signup that asks specifically:
"Do you want to receive our newsletter?" and then act accordingly.

I'm going to try the other plugin as it seems like it might be able to do that.

Will this plugin, or the new plugin integrate with the forums and blog to pull info from posted threads and blog's?

If it doesn't do this now or in the upcoming upgrade will be a main reason this will ever be successful with many vbulletin admin's. I noticed it currently shows only 24 downloads on the most popular vbulletin mod website.

I had installed this mod on my board only because of a promotion by MailChimp that gave 12,000 credits and then if you did something else you got another $3,000 credits and if it was all before a certain time you got another 5,000 credits.

After installing this plugin as the best I can remember to me it looked like it mainly allowed you to import your subscribers. There didn't appear to be much more about it. I went on MailChimp and registered an account and spent time trying to get use to it. I'll admit they have an extremely nice setup on MailChimp, it's just that it needs to work more with the our boards database with pulling down info from threads and such. Btw, that actually happens to be what landed me here again. I wanted to back track and see if MailChimp was working with our boards as I have mentioned. It doesn't seem that it does, and I'll apologize now if I'm wrong with anything I have posted here.

I've seen some vbulletin boards that have newsletter plugins that pull the data and images from their board. All they do is check off what they want sent to their subscribers, check off what sponsor banners and links are added. Very basic.

It's been a month. I need this integration. Is it about done or still waiting to be addressed? Thanks.

I don't recall seeing any promises. A good (free) add on is worth waiting on.

Curious if this add-on works anymore with VB 4.2.2. We can't get it working at all.

We simply want the option for "Receive emails from Administrator" to push the email subscription to mailchimp, and have mailchimp send out the verification email. We don't need or want sync, or merge fields or anything else.

Many thanks,
