EPC vbMailer [LITE] for vBulletin


*** Image removed as it was hotlinking to another site and site does not allow for hotlinking ***

(Not just a hack, just a HUGE expansion in getting your communication professionally delivered effectively and efficiently to your forums members)


Brief Introduction:

What we have here is an expansion of a lot of tools that deal with “effective” communication with your forums members by and through the vBulletin forums system. As you know there are many modifications on the vBulletin.org website that’ll help you manage all of these means, some are lacking other essential needs or you are simply too tired to figuring out which one doesn’t work with what hack. Overall, we have built EPC vBMailer to be the overall and ONLY solution to your vBulletin e-mailing needs. Because you request it in here, we will build it without any questions!

After endless reading on the forums at vbulletin.org, we have found it to be a wise decision to release a LITE and a FULL version, basically a trial version before you buy? Where the trial will not ever end, it’s just a lighter version to the FULL version which has an extended amount of features in it that handles ALL of your e-mailing needs in one!


Core Feature List:
  • Templates
    • Add templates
    • Edit templates
    • Delete templates
  • Autoresponders
    • Add autoresponders
    • Edit autoresponders
    • Delete autoresponders
  • Compose Email
    • Type an email, or
    • Use a template
    • Schedule when to send
  • Bounce Management
    • Logs into your SMTP info
    • Inactivates bounced emails
    • Deletes bounced emails from server
  • Settings
    • Easily edit vbMailer Settings inside your config file
    • FULL version has it all built into the /admincp/ with more support
Templates Overview
  • Enter a subject, text email and HTML email to easily send them out on-the-fly later
  • Templates, like anything else in vbMailer, support variables
Autoresponder Overview
  • Setup autoresponder sequences to automatically send out emails
  • Very powerful for those of you who want to seamlessly and automatically advertise your forums, or give your users a friendly "nudge" to come back
  • Yep, autoresponders support variables too
Compose Email Overview
  • Choose a previously created template or enter a subject, text and HTML email
  • Choose a time to run the campaign, allowing you to schedule the campaign for whenever you want
(meaning you can setup that advertisement email to run while you are on vacation, phew!)
  • And did I mention, composing an email directly also supports variables
Review Campaigns Overview:
  • Track how each of your campaigns is doing, by looking at how many emails were SENT, FAILED and READ
  • Delete any upcoming campaigns
Bounce Management Overview:
  • No more annoying bounce emails filling your Inbox
  • Every time the cron runs, it automatically sets the email status to inactive on any bounced emails
  • PM sent to user to update his/her e-mail address!
Example of a log when one is bounced:

Email sent [sadfjasdfj2234rr32ff@email.com] using [smtp]

#-Bounces---------------------#
Connected to mail.mydomainhere.com
Logged in as username@mydomainhere.com
Fetched message list

Found bounce [sadfjasdfj2234rr32ff@email.com]
sadfjasdfj2234rr32ff@email.com: Email inactivated
sadfjasdfj2234rr32ff@email.com: Bounce email deleted

Connection closed

Done
EPC vbMailer Variables Overview:

Although you can use anything in the 'user' table as a template variable, the most useful are provided in this list:
[userid]
[username]
[email]
[homepage]
[icq]
[aim]
[yahoo]
[msn]
[skype]
[posts]
[ipaddress]
[pmtotal]
[pmunread]
[warnings]

EPC vbMailer Variables Test Email

So basically you would setup and form e-mail going out to all as an example:

Dear [username],

Today it has come to our attention your posts total today are [posts] posts on the forums.

Total warnings you have on file are [warnings] warnings!

You have a total of [pmtotal] PM’s inside your inbox on the forums, also do note that you have a total of [pmunread] unread PM’s

Your webpage is located at: [homepage]

On file we have the following Instant Messengers:

ICQ: [icq]

YAHOO: [yahoo]
MSN: [msn]
SKYPE: [skype]

Your User ID, which is a number and can be found to be as follows: [userid]

Your sign-up IP address was: [ipaddress]

Best regards,
EPC vbMailer and Team
EPC vbMailer Outcome E-mail

Enough of that one, below you’ll see the outcome of the e-mail:

Dear BillyBoyGates,

Today it has come to our attention your posts total today are 0 posts on the forums.

Total warnings you have on file are 0 warnings!

You have a total of 0 PM’s inside your inbox on the forums, also do note that you have a total of 0 unread PM’s

AIM: bloggermania
YAHOO: yahoosucks@yahoo.com
MSN: billyboygates@hotmail.com
SKYPE: skyperockstotally

Your sign-up IP address was: 131.0.12.125

Best regards,
EPC vbMailer and Team

You can unsubscribe at any time by visiting the forums where this was sent from and requesting not to receive emails from administrators any more.

Conclusion:

You have installed at LEAST 5+ separate hacks to mount up to what we just created but coded you here in the LITE version, do note this, in the FULL version for less than a happy meal you will have even more flexibility. Whether you wanted to run a newsletter, or send out a series of e-mails (autoresponders) or simply schedule the sending times and letting EPC vbMailer will do it for you seamlessly.

In the LITE version, you will need to note, there is a set limit on how many e-mails that can be sent out due to the core of the LITE wasn’t designed to handle UNLIMITED.

Make sure you check it out in the LITE first to see if this is something you would like, with full SUPPORT too you if you clicked install. Bottom line, we are just happy to accommodate anyone and everyone.

How do I get support?

Also comes with a 22 page End-User Documentation, all clean and sectioned out for you in PDF. Make sure you have Adobe READER v6+ not a RIPPER

Support is given to those who click INSTALL...

However if you have questions before installing do let us know, we have tested this on 3.6.8, and if you have a forums that is prior, please let us know if this works and report this here! Others will appreciate it a lot.

All support for the LITE version will be held here only if you click install, and if you purchase the full version all support is handled in the order received by our full-time reps in the CSC, NO support is held here for the FULL version!

So here's the LITE version and it comes with a full set of instructions and if you require any assistance on how to find feeds and what places are best for feeds, do post them in here.

Also if you post anything in here that has NOTHING to do with the hack and support, question related issues, i.e. Starting drama on anything not related to this hack, "it is no good", "I guess this will ruin this", and blah blah, keep your drama out please!

ONE reason of MANY:

phplist doesn't work inside vbulletin seamlessly and is a 3rd party script that works in another directory and not with vBulletin, nor can it tie into vBulletin unless it has hacks to...

Good enough? So now you have to buy 6

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Can we use this to mass mail to our members?
Absolutely! Even has the ability to sleep between sends.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I have a few questions about the full version of EPC mailing:

1. Wich are the differences between LITE and FULL ?

2. Am I able to use "customfields" on the email ?

3. How this mod affects server load ?

4. What kind of autoresponders you can setup
1. Differences are not much but more flexibility and support for sending out unlimited vs the LITE not coded to have support for sending out Autoresponders and not able to handle unlimited e-mails as two main differences, each one has the same features, just in the FULL you have more control over the settings and it handles unlimited. For you to see the difference of the two you should go to the webpage for the FULL and compare it via screenshots if needed. Overall we have ALOT of copies sold, but you are well known to be as a supporter, we aren't making profits, we are simply getting ready to release many more hacks for the community, namely our last ones here:

Sorry We are Closed

EPC Massive User Creator :: Using PHP and .NET (ALL SOURCES)


EPC Autoposter for vBulletin Hack

2. Yes you can use custom fields in e-mails. See in the hacks description which states:

EPC vbMailer Variables Overview:

Although you can use anything in the 'user' table as a template variable, the most useful are provided in this list:
[userid]
[username]
[email]

So basically you would setup and form e-mail going out to all as an example:

I have a question/ feature suggestion.

you are calling it All in ONE E-mail Solution

If that is the case, I will buy the pro version if you add this feature that I would love!

feature: auto respond email/pm to paid subscriptions

There is already one of vb.org but it is buggy, and it does not have the feature to make up a different email template per subscription.

If you can do this, then I would call it a All in ONE E-mail Solution and would buy it for sure!

Let me know what you think. thanks.

You are welcome, and do note the LITE wasn't designed for the AR = Autoresponder, so therefore you can work with by saving them and if you like this whole addition, feel free to check out the FULL version, it's just about as a tough as it gets! I think there is NOTHING in there for a full e-mail solution that any webmaster needs if they own vBulletin.

However that's my opinion and it comes with a product installer, 22 page manual, and so much more. Even comes with our support!

How so, if a person clicks install, adds it to their vB and gives us feedback then we add it. In your case we love you and will do what we can here on that... If we add that feature then we should raise the prices after adding it or before?

Show me the buggy solution that you are referencing so I can see what you mean fully.

Side note: It is an all-in-one solution already, not another hack is like this!

Best regards,
BTR

Yes, absolutely, if they belong to your forums, you can simply mail them to your fingers can't mail no more. Everything works behind the scenes, you set the templates up, you go to compose email, select the first template you want mailed, hit next, preview the email and set the times you want it gone. It all works off the clocks or you can mail it right then and there.

It's all up to you. Also, works behind the scenes so you don't have to hit the button next after so many and etc... The FULL version has a sleeper which you can send in intervals at your choosing, i.e. 5 emails sleep however many seconds... 10 emails per however many seconds... and etc...

What do you think of that? Works for you?
