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.

I'm running 4.2.0 Patch 1 and installed this mod. When I hit the URL I just get forwarded back to the front of my website and no settings get changed.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this mod! Working very well for me on my 4.1.12, the only problem is a problem with my host (hostmonster) using different email proxies to handle the bounced emails. Some of their proxies don't include full headers which means no link to click on. Who knows when/if they'll fix that ... everyone who I've talked to at hostmonster about it seems to be clue less.

Ok that problem that I blamed on my hosts proxies, is not their problem. The problem is with vB or this mod (I'm inclined to lean towards it being vB's fault).

Here is the reply from my host in regards to the differing email headers;

All 3 messages you included were all sent through the same email proxies so it isn't going to be an issue of our mail proxies. The difference in the headers is the php script that the mail is coming from. The good one is sent from forumdisplay.php where the two bad are sent from showthread.php. The section where that header is, is set by your mailing script not by the server or the mail proxy we use.
I have yet to look into this, but maybe (hopefully) someone here has an idea where to start

It's not a vB issue, the issue is that the mod does not insert a link in email headers sent from showthread.php.

I haven't been able to figure this out yet It only injects the bounce link in forumdisplay.php headers, I'd like to have it inject the bounce link in showthread.php headers as well since that's where the majority of my bounced email headers are coming from.

Can anybody who's using this write a script to pipe the email so that the link automatically gets clicked on rather than me doing it manually? I seem to have 3,500 emails right now and they come through too often to manage manually.

Is this mod supported?

If not, then we should request that the vBulletin.org team update the settings.

I hope that we can get an answer to the latest questions at the very least on how to incorporate the links in the showthread.php headers.

Shouldn't this be part of the instructions... or did I miss it?

vb 3.8x

this mod worked great as long as I sent my emails with the internal php function. Yesterday I sent out with 3 forums emails, but this time with smtp email.

I got many bounces but NONE of them had the EZ link in it.

Except the switch from php to smtp, nothing was changed.

Why the ez bounce link does not show in the bounced email anymore? Does it not work with smtp?

I was just about to install when I saw this. We use an SMTP server also. Any update?

Edit: It seems like it does. I found mention here
