Well, this is a _very_ small hack.. and will take 1 minute, with one file change.

Basically, when using 'Email Users' from the Admin CP, I got REALLY annoyed with having to keep scrolling down and clicking on the 'Do Next Page' button. This _really_ should have been something automated from the start. SO...

put hack in a txt file and attached

This or similar should work on any version, it basically just uses javascript to submit the form 'name' automatically once the page has fully loaded. From my experience, this tends to work once you have submitted the first page manually.

is there a way to put a delay on each page. the server load goes crazy when i email 50 members at a time since there is over 18k members. i thought if i could put a 1 minute delay between loading the next page it might help??? any ideas

I just wanted to saw thanks. I've always had trouble sending out the mail, until now. works like a charm. I know it was simple, but it was a huge improvement and I appreciate it.

PS - I set mine to 50 at a time and just let it run. Yes it takes awhile, but all the emails go out and thanks to this hack it's not a pain in the ass

I havent done that.... but I'd imagine you could create a function for a small timer and the submit in javascript to create the delay.
