Plugins can now contribute email addresses to the bulk mailout facility.

Plugins can now contribute email addresses to the bulk mailout facility.

A typical example is a name and address list (separate from your list of site members).

For coders, this is achieved by adding an e_mailout.php file to your plugin directory. There are examples in the event calendar directory (which is probably about as simple as you can get, and not very useful!), and the newsletter directory. The core mailout selector is also a pseudo-plugin file in the same format, and is in e107_handlers/mailout_class.php - this is a good example of a more complex file.

For users, you can configure which plugins are active - this helps keep screen complexity down. So if you don't normally want to mail your subscribers to events, just untick the box on the mailout options page.
