Does this add attachment capabilities? Or was this just a bug fix like the Author module?

Just a bug fix because former versions of Mailinglist Module and Author as Sender Module didn't work for me (because I don't use the FROM address option). Now I have both modules also correctly working in my production system.

Next step will be attachment capabilities.

If you don't want to send so many outgoing emails look if your mailing list software offers "digests". I think this would be the better solution for your visitors.

There is also a module in here called "Forum Subscriptions" that will email new topics, but not replies.

There is also another one called "Group Auto Email" that does the same thing, which is really an older version of Forum Subscriptions.

Hello, all. Thanks for the hard work you all put in. I've run through all the forums, and the code itself, and I'm still having trouble figuring out one minor issue. I would like outgoing emails from phorum, which go to a Mailman list, to appear to be sent from the posting party, not from the system email default. I have tried "Author as Sender", and it doesn't appear to substitute the author of the post for the system email default when it sends to the Mailman list. I suspect I'm not setting up something right, but this is the last piece of the puzzle for me to move over to Phorum, other than trying to figure out how to import a phpBB2 board. That's another day. Thanks for any help.

I answered deadesq in the Author as Sender thread.

On the other hand, how is that attachment handling coming along Oliver?

Hi Robert,

thanks for answering to deadesq. It seems to me that your are knowing my modules better than me. ;-)

Mailing List Module extended but no attachments in incoming mails...

I found the problem: my Mailing List Module uses phorum_email_user to send mails (because I like to use existing core functions instead of programming the wheel a second time...).

But phorum_email_user calls the send_mail hook without passing attachments. So the smtp_mail module doesn't receive any attachment...

So, what to do? I see various solutions:

1. Phorum developers add attachment support to the send_mail hook (my preferred solution).

2. The Mailing List Module catches attachments with the email_user_start hook and uses the send_mail hook to add them to the message array (running with priority before the smpt_mail module).

3. Duplicating main part of phorum_email_user to my Mailing List Module (which causes an obligation to keep this part synchronous to the core function in future releases).

@Thomas: What about solution 1?

Regards
Oliver
