EZ Bounced Email Management for Admins

vB Version: 3.6.x Rating: (52 votes - 4.77 average) Installs: 501
Released: 09 Feb 2007 Last Update: 14 Jul 2008 Downloads: 2825
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.

Alfa1 have you got any update for this yet? I just got blocked by Yahoo so I installed this again, and since I have 600 000 members this is going to be a huge task if I have to do it manually again.

Yes, I have a working fully automatized version, but we are adding popups for users so they are guided trough the re-activation process, getting rid of the conflict with vmail, optimize various things that are needed before release, code review and look into any possible copyright issues.

For example: we started of by using EZbounced and various other scripts/code and bridging that. From there we rewrote a lot of code, so I need to check copyright and ask permission where needed.

It works on my big board but it is not ready for release yet.

I have another email plugin (GAZ from vbgeek) that sends newsletters out. I am trying to figure out how to place some code in there email newsletters that puts the EZbounce link in it. Is there an easy way or a small piece of code that I can add to it? I tried several pieces from the XML file but no luck. I am not a coder so please provide a few more details if someone knows how to do. Thanks Jamey

This is sending out PM emails after I have marked them as bounced. The PM email then bounces, so I have to deal with two bounces for everyone that bounces. Of course I just delete the second one, but it should know not to send out an email for the PM if it bounced. Is this a bug?'

Thanks!

I use sendgrid for emailing and they list all the emails that have bounced. So I have a list of around a few thousand emails Is there any way I can plug those email IDs into this so that I can unsubscribe all of them?
