This modification will allow social group owners and administrators to send an email to all members of a social group. Each usergroup can be configured to specifically allow or disallow sending to groups they created, if you would like to limit this ability to specific trusted user groups. By default, admins will also be able to send emails to members of any group, regardless of whether they created the group or not.

Note: If a social group member has elected not to receive emails from other members or is invited to a group and has not accepted yet, they will not receive emails sent using this modification.

Installation

1. Upload bitfield_socialgroupemail.xml to your forum/includes/xml directory before you install the product.
2. Use the Product Manager to import the product file product-rah_socialgroup_email_1_0_0.xml.
3. Use the Style Manager to find and edit your socialgroups_group template:

Near the bottom, find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Below that ADD:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

2. Edit the user group.
3. Find the section "Social Groups Permissions," and set the permissions for emailing as desired.

Hi, I don't see how users can spam through this option:

1. Only the owner of a group or admins can mail the members
2. If I am member of a group I want to be in and want to have new message

People can leave the group if they think that they get spam or they can turn to an admin that the owner gets changed or informed.

I think this feature is very very useful. thanks

I second the motion for the PM option. Would this be possible Farcaster?

Yeah. It would be. Sending a PM is not much different than sending an email. Perhaps in the next revision, I will add a PM option as well.
