Can I send a mail to all registered users

I am running version 5.1.25 and will move the forum to a new host as well as update the forum to the latest release.

I would like to mass-mail the users about my intentions, but I cannot see an option to send out a mail to everyone. Is it possible from withing Phorum?

TIA,

Alain

There's no feature for mass mailing in Phorum. What you can do, is retrieve all the mail addresses from the database for the active users and use the resulting maillist in a mail client outside of Phorum.

Just curious. Wouldn't it be possible to accomplish it by sending a private message to all registered users?

No, since he was asking for sending a mail, not a PM.

A PM would trigger a notification mail at best and the default contents of that mail would be a link to the PM read page.

Put differently: the requirement is to inform the user, not to lure the user into visiting the website.

True... it was meant as an alternative. How about Admin Mass Email?
