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.

Do I have to create a mailing list to have the bounce emails and other options to work? Can I not do a mailing list and just send out a mass email using the vb default mass email section and the bounce emails mod will still work?

No, you can use the bounce management aspects of the mod without setting up a mailing list

I just installed this mod, but I need help. Maybe I just don't understand how it's supposed to work. Problem: I have a test user which is set up with as a regular user but also belonging to a special test user group called "Special Test." I set up a mailing list and set that user group to "Default Subscribed" However, when I click on "View Subscribed Users" in the Mailing List Manager, that user in that test group does NOT show up, nor does he get mail when I send mail from the meal list. However, when I look at the Subscription Log, I see that user has :Subscribed" but under "Mailing List" it says "N/A". So when I select a user group to be "Default Subscribed" in a mailing list, it seems to give them a subscribed status, but not subscribed to any list. What am I missing, or is this a bug?

Question

Hi Filip,

we were wondering, why our newsletter only reachs 7% of our users for quite some time now. Today I came across the field dbtech_vbmail_bounceflag in the vbuser table and wondered, why that field was empty for most users:

Q1: Could this be the reason, that we canīt reach most of our users anymore? The timeframe since this occurs would fit with the installation date of vbMail and the bounce handling.

Q2: Would updating that field with 0 unflag all users?

(And before I break something:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

- is this the correct query to update the field with 0 ?)

Default Subscribed - If the intention is that the list of users marked set by default, so it does not work.
How do I can include all registered users....
Another question
How can I set the text direction to Hebrew text right to left

The "Default Subscribed" feature will subscribe all users who did not have a subscription status when saving the mailing list.

The text direction will follow what the user's language direction is set to

Is this mod smart enough to know the difference between bounce reasons? For example, my server currently has all emails bouncing from ATT due to them blacklisting the server (temporarily). So the emails get bounced, but the reason in the bounce states it's due to being blacklisted. Will the mod know that and not block that user? So that the admin can possibly fix the problem rather than removing valid addresses? Thanks.

Also what does vbmail do if the bounce is due to a user over their mailbox quota?
