Mass emailing

There is the possibility of mass emailing to users.

It can be done in Control Panel > Users > Mass mail dispatch according to the following rules:

1. The max message length is 10,000 characters.
2. Emails can be sent not more often than once per 5 hours.
3. Users can subscribe to the mailing list when registering or editing their profiles.
4. You can create subject categories to which users can subscribe (e.g.: "Site News", "Computer News", "World News"). The max number of categories is 20.
5. Dispatch cannot be stopped so be attentive and don't click "Start dispatch" beforehand.
6. All emails are sent in the text format, therefore HTML tags won't work in the emails.

Mass emails are sent only to the users who have subscribed to them and who have confirmed their emails. Mass mail subscription is VOLUNTARY!


Note: The subscription option will appear in the registration form and on user profiles ONLY after you have created at least one mailing category!


How to send a mass email?

Go to: Control Panel > Users > Mass mail dispatch.

1. Make sure you have created at least one category. If no, click on New category.

2. Select a category. (Required)

    a) To see who subscribed to the category click on Subscribers.
    b) To see previous sent mass emails click on Dispatch archive.


3. Fill out the form and click on Start dispatch.

I would like to know if we cant use neither html nor bbcodes, how can i make the mail more beautiful?
How can i underline or make bold text?
Unfortunately you can't.

Is there any chance of this feature being implemented in the future? I would like to add links in my e-mails.

Tom, we are not planning it as yet. You can add links as a plain text.

You had 30 users on your site or 30 subscribers?

DJYoshi, yes it makes more sense and it looks like you really deleted the list when editing/deleting categories. And I'm afraid to get it back your users must subscribe to it once again (in their profiles).

Hi uNet ... The Mass PM seems to be a bit wonky on our site ... northayrshirewargamesclub.co.uk. The problem is when sent (1 per 5 hours), the club members don't get it? Is the 1 per 5 hours per person or per website ... so, if another club member sends one, I can't send mine for 5 hours? ... Thanks ... Walts

Balrog, are you speaking about Mass PM dispatch or Mass mail dispatch? These are different things.

Hi Tommy ... I think ur confused now! I'm asking about Mass PM ... not Mass Mail, which is restricted to 1 every 5 hours ... I'm asking is Mass PM effected by the same rules, i.e. 1 every 5 hrs only? Thanks ... Balrog
