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.

I was considering using this mod, until I saw that part of the copyright info. in the footer includes some sort of an affiliate link to Hivelocity.

Looked like a nice mod though. :)

Nothing stopping you from removing the affiliate link, you'll need to leave the links to Dragonbyte Tech intact though :)

Well, I tend to be pretty careful about copyrights. :) I did not want to remove anything and then be accused of.. whatever.

You may want to include this info in the download / main post - it's within an area in the template where it mentions the copyright should not be changed or removed. So like myself, others may not realize it is not a requirement for that particular part.

We'll update our descriptions stating what you can and can't remove in the future :)

Is this only on vb4? Is a chron system available for vb3?

Post Reader 04 Aug 2011 00:44

i have to disable all my hooks due to this error because when ever i try to un install this product it makes all my styles with white pages having ugly texts showing up

DragonByte Tech 04 Aug 2011 01:08

That error is impossible unless you have edited either /dbtech/vbmail/hooks/init_startup.php or /dbtech/vbmail/includes/specialtemplates.php.

Please try uploading a fresh copy of all files.
