vBMail: What is it?
vBMail is a professional mailing list mod with Bounced Mail handling and advanced subscription management features.

Uses

vBMail is the perfect solution for any forum who wish to send out large quantities of mail to users on a mailing list. It lets admins and users have fine-grained access to subscriptions, and also automatically handles bounced mail.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Priority support & Product Demos available at: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Translations available @ our forum
Support for translations handled by the translator in its respective threads only.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

vBMail v1.1.8 Alpha 2
Change: Now requires vBulletin Connect 5.0.2 to run
Change: Reduced memory usage by reworking the way the mod caches things to take advantage of vB5's built-in long-term cache storage
Change: Modules in the Site Builder are now grouped under the "DragonByte" category rather than the "Display" category
Fix: Modules in the Site Builder now once again have titles

Hi there,

Unfortunately I don't believe the vB5 version allows you to send HTML mail due to limitations in vB5.

The only way we could take advantage of that (a three and a half year old three-line code change) would be to drop support for older versions of vB5.

It may be implemented when we go back to correct our mods for the next round of random changes in vB5.

Just curious, when was the last time your company "went back to correct our mods for the next round of random changes in vB5"?

I see there is an option to purchase a subscription for support. I can't understand why anybody would purchase your company's product support (which I assume includes updates) if your company does not keep up with changes in Vb?

I ask this because I have been waiting for an update for nearly a year. My current product is "limping" along, with not much functionality in the admincp. I have purchased a couple of your products, and "was" looking to purchase three more, including this one, if ever, they were to work. But I have to say, dealing with your company makes me jittery, because I see the lack of support and willingness on your company's part to work outside of Xenforo and Vb4.

You can see the last update dates for all our vB5 mods on our profile: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/member.php?u=373913

We absolutely do not sell support, nor do we sell subscriptions. When your license expires, you do not have to revert to the Lite version, you can run the latest version you have access to indefinitely.

What we sell is licenses to receive any updates that may or may not be released within the license period.
Support is always provided free of charge

To address the second half of your question; if you were to submit feedback to Internet Brands that they should focus more on mod development, keeping the core stable so that new versions do not constantly require seemingly random tweaks (the latest issue with form submissions has happened before, was reverted again and has now apparently been re-introduced...?) from mod developers, that would help us immensely

If they have to introduce backwards compatibility breaking changes to the API or something else, why is there not a mailing list for addon developers that gives us a heads up?

Also, all our vB5 mods are flagged as BETA for this very reason. Personally, I also strongly recommend that anyone interested in running custom modifications stay clear of vB5 due to how unstable it is from a mod development point of view.
