EZ Bounced Email Management for Admins

vB Version: 3.6.x Rating: (52 votes - 4.77 average) Installs: 499
Released: 09 Feb 2007 Last Update: 14 Jul 2008 Downloads: 2790
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files  

DESCRIPTION:
This mod will insert a special EZbounce link into the header of all emails sent from your forums. In the event any email bounces back to you, you simply click the EZbounce link and the Ezbounce script launches, which will modify the bouncing members settings to prevent further bouncing emails. It will also send that member a PM asking them to update their email address.

This modification is known to work with versions as high as 3.8.x


FEATURES:
  • Will not modify settings for Admins, Supermods, or Moderators if their email bounces
  • (if turned on) Bouncing member is moved to whatever usergroup you set in AdminCP EZbounce Settings
  • Updates bouncing member's "Receive Email from Administrators" setting to NO
  • Updates bouncing member's "Receive Email Notification of New Private Messages" setting to NO
  • Updates bouncing member's "Receive Email from Other Members" setting to NO
  • Remove email notification for all of bouncing member's subscribed THREADS
  • Remove email notification for all of bouncing member's subscribed FORUMS
  • Turns on Popup Notification of new Private Messages for bouncing member
  • PM is sent to Member notifying them of bounced email & asking them to update email address
  • (if turned on) When member updates & confirms their new email, they are returned to original usergroup.

Now, the next time you send a newsletter from your AdminCP, (so long as you only send emails to members whom have "Receive Email From Administrators" set to "Yes") you will no longer receive a bounced email from this member (because they are no longer being sent).

And also, if you created a new usergroup such as "Bounced Members" and set this usergroupid in this hack's settings, now the members that have bounced can be pruned, sent reminder emails, whateveryou want to do with them!


WHAT IF A MEMBER DECIDED TO CLICK ON THE LINK IN THE EMAIL HEADER?
Most email clients don't show the email's headers by default, however in the event a member is slick enough to view their header and they click on this mysterious link, they will simply receive a no permission message since they're unallowed to log in to the AdminCP.


ZIP FILE CONTENTS:
1 Product (2 plugins, a couple phrases & installcode which adds 1 colum to user table)
1 File


HOW TO VIEW FULL EMAIL HEADERS:
You might need to configure your email client to view full email headers in order to see the EzBounce link. There's detailed instructions on how to do this for the most popular email clients here.

Just one thing,

If I added the user to the banned group, is there anyway to have this

It allows the the admin of a forum to exclude members who have a bouncing email addresses from recieving mass emails sent by the admin from within the AdminCP.

Not currently, if you specify the banned usergroup in step 4 then they will be treated as a banned member when/if they return. I would suggest usergroup 3 Members Awaiting Email Confirmation instead

np

I just did a test and it works GREAT!!!

That will save me so much time having to search for user names and sort it out that way lol

I would love to see this as standard vb too.

Thanks very much

Oh I was just thinking.

Is there anyway to have this hack open a new thread in a staff forum to notify the moderators?

Banned user name as thread title and then user banned in the thread?

Would be cool

This isn't a banned user system! Think about this. If you have EVER sent out a mass mailing to your members, you have received some of them bounce back to you when an email has gone inactive. This simply lets you place that user in a another group preventing YOU from sending them any more emails. This will prevent the bounced emails from coming back to you again without removing the user. If they come back, they can update their email addy and all will be good again.

Hi Nathan, Rich is actually correct, this isn't intended to be used to ban members. It's simply to prevent you as admin from receiving a ton of bounces on future mass mailings from within Admincp by NOT sending to whatever usergroup you specifyin step 4.

I get 2-3 bounced e-mails per DAY because of the outgoing birthday announcements, plus thread subscriptions for people who's e-mail addresses are no longer valid.

Imagine if I sent out an announcement to all 2,000 members. I'd probably get 1,200 bounces. Thanks Antivirus for writing this add-on! Now we just go to the bottom of each bounced e-mail, click one link, and bingo, that user is put on hiatus!

i know, i sent out a newsletter myself yesterday and got like 500+ bounces started searching vbcom for a soultion and came across your thread, so i made it

I have a few cool ideas for the next version, but not sure when i'm going to be able to code them. Hopefully soon.

if you mean thread subscriptions, yes. The only thing is it doesn't handle em automatically, you (if you have admin) you simply check your inbox where the bounces are being received, then you click on the link in the bounced email. Then you see a confirmation message in your adminCP that the user was moved to whatever usergroup you specified in step 4 above.

Then next time you send out an email, (so long as you remember to NOT send it to the usergroup specified in step 4) that email won't bounce again because it's no longer being sent.
