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.

I purchased this product and when I did a mailout it truncated all 3 links in the email and turned them all in to 404 errors which of course defeated the purpose of the email

Anyone had this problem ?

This does not guarantee the mod is error free on PHP 5.4, but it will take care of the reported errors. Thank you all for your reports

Fillip, are you monitoring this thread?

Also, I attempted to register at your VB Forum and your system failed to send me an activation email. As a potential customer, I need to have a reliable means of communicating with you. Your forum contact link does not exist either.

We have had no similar reports of this happening, please try disabling all other addons.

Not as closely as threads at our site.

What is your email provider?

Also, if by "forum contact link" you mean the "Contact Us" link then it does indeed exist

This mod will indeed handle those kind of emails

You don't have to use the Mailing List component in order to take advantage of bounced mail handling either

Fillip,

this is great mod. No need to care about bounced eMails anymore!
But may I make 2 suggestions?

On my forums I have several people which just ignore to update their eMail-adresses. Shouldnīt bother me. But it does. Couldnīt you add an option to change the owner of a bounced mail to the usergroup 3? So they would be forced to put in a valid adress instead of their bounced ones.

I donīt make use of the mailing lists. There is just no use on my forums for them and Iīve only installed vbMail for having that neat little bouncehandling
Iīve noticed that there are two new buttons in the usercpīs, related to the mailing lists and people are asking me, what the heck this should be and I have to say nothing you should care about. Guess Iīm not the only one with that. May be you could make the appearance in the usercpīs optional?

But, all in all, was a long time until somebody came up with a functional bouncehandler like this. Kudos, Fillip.

Feature requests are best posted @ our forum (http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/forum.php) in the support forum for this mod, so that they're not lost to the mists of time here on vB.org

Please understand that at the time of writing, we have 106 releases here at vBulletin.org.

I don't think it would be reasonable to expect us to be able to keep track of multiple feature requests for 106 releases, especially considering it's likely to be several weeks, if not months, until we next release an update for vBMail.

My fridge is also not big enough to contain that many magnets - the downsides of being a bachelor

For this reason, we request that people post feature requests on our forum, as we have an issue tracking mod (that we released on vB.org as DragonByte vBForms) that will remember the threads and organise them by each release, so that we can quickly see what feature requests are outstanding.

Personally, I don't believe this is an unreasonable request. However, if you do, then I can absolutely respect that - but please do not expect your feature request to be taken into consideration as a result.

Thank you for your understanding


Fillip

Actually, you don't have to register anywhere.

But, you want something for free and you have a hard time registering (which is free and actually takes no more than a minute to do) on a forum? Well, it looks like you don't care about this feature request at all.

Which, of course, is completely fine.

May be my fault - but has the ironic part between the lines in my post above become some kind of lost in translation? Should be a joke, nothing more.
