EZ Bounced Email Management for Admins

Developer Last Online: Aug 2014 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.6.x Rating: (52 votes - 4.77 average) Installs: 502
Released: 09 Feb 2007 Last Update: 14 Jul 2008 Downloads: 2840
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.

Has anyone tested this with 3.8 yet? If so is it working? I'd hate to lose this after upgrading.

There are plenty of vbulletin sites running with the admincp located in the default forum/admincp/ location, and are just as secure. Regardless of the admincp directory's being re-named, it still boils down to the fact that they can not access it without knowing your password. Therefore this mod does not make your site any less secure than it would be without installing it.

I'm using this in vB 3.82 it did work the first time around with a test user, then I started getting a blank white page so I uninstalled and reinstalled it.

Now I get a database error


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

I notice it left the user id out of the script url any suggestions?

Clearchannel, the reason why the query is failing is because your referring script has no userid appended to the end of it. All ezbounce links (when appended to outgoing email from vbulletin) have a userid appended to the end of the ezbounce header like this:

http://mydomain.com/forums/admincp/e...e.php?u=923998

where 923998 would be the userid of the recipient whom the email was originally sent, and bounced.

Yes, I realize it is not putting the user id number in the ezboard link. Why is that? I will be out of town for the next few days, when I return I will post a detailed report of what I have done and how the product has responded.

The only thing I can think of which may cause the userid to be missing is that you have another modification whcih is conflicting with this one.

Go to AdminCP->Plugins&Products->PluginsManager and look to see if there are any other plugins using hook location: mail_send. If there are, try changing the Execution order for the EZbounce plugin (at this same hook location) to be either higher or lower than the others. Test it by sending a test email to an address you know will bounce such as [email protected] then check the ezbounce header for a userid in the bounced email.

The only other thing i can think of is if you are allowing your users to use the "Send to Friend" feature which is naturally not going to append a userid since friends are usually not registered in the forums.

Two other prominent addons that use mail_send are
  • CommBull
  • vBSEO

One situation in which the userID goes missing is if you have vmail installed and the registration email is for a person that has no userID yet.

Hello,

and sorry for my bad english ...


I am installing this Addon on a vb 3.7.4 and tested it, but i became the folling "Error":

vBulletin-Systemmitteilung


Testaccount was not managed because he/she belongs to a protected usergroup!
The "Testaccount" is in standard Usergroup with the number "2" and it would be moved to another Group named "Mailadresses wrong" with the number "55". In ACP the URL to AdminCP is ok, also the Usergroupids ...

Edit: protectet in the php file are only: ids 5,6,7 and 40 - but not the 55 or the 2 ... any idea?
