Send Mass Emails Using the Mailqueue System 1.0


I recently changed where I send emails for my forum from. I had been using by server and now switched to an outside place. I found that sending a mass email would take FOREVER since it would take a few seconds per email it had to send out.

I had my vb setting of "Use Mailqueue System" set to 'Yes' but I realized it was NOT using the queue.

I found the way to enable the queue and sending mass emails takes me just a few seconds now! (This hack makes sending emails from your own server much faster also.)

This hack enables the vb queue only if you have 'Use Mailqueue System' turned on. Sending mass emails will take you a few seconds instead of minutes of hours!

Installation:

Open file 'admincp/email.php'.

So, let me ask, one cannot send HTML formatted emails through this? I have a custom mod that allows me to send HTML emails through the vB system. LMK if this would work.
Yes it works perfectly fine.

No clue.

Or maybe, because they dont think you want mass email clogging the queue.

Very nice that this is compatible with sending html emails via AdminCP! Great share!
Now I have a stoopid question: My vB isn't set to use the Mailqueue System --- Do I need this set to "Yes" before this hack works?

Anyway - Thanx = Very useful mod! = INSTALLED

Jacquii.

Anything you want. It will go really quick so you can send like 1000-5000. This setting would be to make the emails and added them to the mail queue.

Abe1,

on my Linux RedHat9, vb 3.6.7 PL1, I installed the mod and am attaching a screen capture of the Mailqueue YES radion button selected, and a copy of my admincp/email.php

did I miss something?

When I tried to send an email to my members, the very normal process of mail sending to 500 members at a time started as before..... is this expected ?
