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.

All bounces are handled equally by vBMail. Due to the vast number of different mail server configurations and their specific ways of returning a bounce, vBMail simply treats all incoming email to the bounce address in the same way. It will increment the user's number of bounces by one.

Users who have been flagged for email change will have their bounce flag cleared when they change their email, or admins can unflag them manually via the User Manager.

Will this work on emails that bounced before it was installed? I have a bounced email account with over a thousand bounces in it. If I install this will it process them correctly?

Nope, cause there will be no "bouncedfrom"-header in them.

I do not email the members very often maybe a newsletter twice a year. The biggest issue I have is emails getting sent to the spam folder. Does this mod improve the percentage of emails that successfully land in the inbox?

First, brilliant mod !!

Only problem I have is that there are no PM's being sent to users who hit the bounce limit. Everything else appears working fine. Lite version

OK, found reason. I had reached my personal PM limit !! It turns out that a few of the PM's were sent (up until I reachd limit) but the rest of the bounced list did not receive a PM. Will they be sent a PM in due course now that I have increased my PM limit??

When we create a new mailing list with default subscription for a certain usergroup, it is not subscribing any user to that mailing list.


How can we subscribe only those users who have opted for receiving Admin email? using the default subscription after creating a new mailing list?

Looks like a great mod, thanks for releasing it, and thanks for your time spent on supporting it.

Does it measure open rates? I'm concerned that much of our mass emails go into spam, and we want to fix that.

Commented out

Line 114 'version' => '2.1.3',

This removes the error but I have not tried send an email yet.
