send bulk email to members
« on: July 19, 2019, 02:39:15 PM »
Version 1.1.20
How to send bulk email to my 350 members? I'm dissapointed that this is not apparent and I can't find anything in FAQ. I see the list of email addresses in my members list, but don't see how to copy them or send to them. If you are going to try to help, you have to assume I know nothing about IT and need extra clear, detailed advice. Thanks.

Personally I'd start by being on a version of SMF that isn't 13 years old and is still getting security fixes (1.1 series is not)

But even 1.1 has the newsletters feature - starting from the Admin menu, there is the 'News and newsletters' area, under which the item 'Newsletters' will let you pick which groups you want to send to, and then to compose a message to them.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

For further information about newsletters, please also look at the relevant wiki page: https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/SMF1.1:News_and_newsletters
