Mass Mailer Guide

maddp posted 30th of May 2009 in Community Voice. 11 comments.

Is it possible to have a guide on the mass mailer? To many users cant get it to work and there is very little help. I have had some assistance but not enough to get it working and i fully understand everyone is busy, but with the level of folks not being able to get it to work i think this will go along way in user fustration. My eyes have grown tired of reading all the i cant get mass mailer to work post with no replies thinking i can find some insight of my own. Just my 2 cents

First you have to make sure you setup the cron jobs after installing dolphin. You can find the instructions for the cron jobs here

I have a virtual dedicated server and can send out 50 emails at a time without any problems. I will probably up that to 75 then 100.

Are you able to explain your problem in more detail?

I had some problems with the mass mailer after upgrading to 6.1.6 and was able to fix it.
the issue is that most new user have no clue as to Cron jobs and there are a fewm install instructions that somewhat say dont worry about it. Its when u try to use the feature u find out that u r in trouble. a guide would help folks out i feel.
i deleted the Dolphin for Dummies guide when i resigned here. but with 30 people to replace me, i am sure they can get to work and replace it with their own.

you can buy that book or go to his site and look at the online version free
You deleted the guide?

Great move Sammie.
i spent 100's of hours on it and posting help here i also deleted close to 1000 forum posts of mine.
but why would it bother you DeeEmm? you said yourself that most the things i posted had mistakes in it. well now they can build their own, 30 people should do it a lot faster than i could alone.

oh and when you use the positive or negative on your post text box, its voting for the main post at the top, not mine.
I voted positive to the OP - negative to yours.

With the new rules I'm sure this discussion will not last - it's both off topic and not in line with the new policy - for this I apologise to the mods in advance

But I feel the need to say that I think that deleting the guide was a selfish and childish act.

Deleting your posts also removes help from those for it in the future.

This really isn't in the spirit of open source / community / unity. Clearly not only do you not want to contribute see more anything useful any more - but the action of deleting stuff such as the guide is pretty much an act of sabotage.

If you have a gripe / grudge against boonex et al, and you don't have anything useful to contribute, why are you still here?

If this was my site - I would have banned you already.
DeeEmm(negative) << you uses the radio buttons for the neg rep. they only apply the rep to the main post, go try it again or just look at the neg rep link and you are listed as giving the OP the neg rep.

oh and it aint your site is it?

you said most of my stuff was full of mistakes, are you now saying it wasnt?

you really dont understand the voting system and you had the gaul to say i dont know what i am doing?

i put positive rep on the radio button to compensate the OP for your see more Neg rep you gave in error
lol - too funny.

Firstly - oops for hitting the wrong reply button (my apologies to the OP owner for littering his thread), and further apologies to Boonex et al for my disregard for the new rules (again).

However - I will say that this will be my last post here on Boonex.

Sammie - You really need to get out more.

I did not say (in this post) that your 'stuff is full of mistakes' please try to keep up with the conversation. Yeah yeah - I know that this is a loaded question so that you see more can mis-quote me from another post in another thread about something different that is completely out of context here [yawn].

Regardless of what I think of the value of your posts and idiots guide, it was a very selfish act to delete them.

In fact it is one of the single most childish thing's I have seen someone do on the internet.

You contributed the guide to the community, where it has been included as part of the documentation, IMO once it is given to the community it becomes the property of the community - you passed on the interlectual property rights when you donated that work, it was no longer yours to delete. Hence my opinion that deleting it was sabotage. As I mentioned before - if this was my site I would have banned you for this act alone. Yes - and thank you for stating the very obvious - I am well aware that it isn't my site.

I find it enlightening that you should exact revenge for your troubles by hurting those not involved or to blame for them. It speaks volumes about the kind of person you are, and has a tinge of bitter irony considering that you were complaining of being a victim of such a thing only days ago.

By deleting the guide, you are trying to use the community as some kind of emotional plea bargaining tool with Boonex. Well, you show them Sammie - that'll make them see! Soon they will learn how they cannot survive without you, the whole empire will fall about their feet - lol

At the end of the day, the only effect it has are on those like maddp - who is now trying to find information that you deleted.

Give yourself a great big pat on the back dear. Well done

Nice to see that your rhetoric is based on my use / misuse of the radio buttons, very classy and intelligent reply, give yourself another great big pat on the back - you deserve it.

I'm done with the melodrama. It's not that it's directed at me or anything, it's just that it hurts my eyes having to read it. I would like to come here and read posts that do not have sammie post whoring in them. So, until that day comes...

I need help but i am not asking for it here. What i am asking is, is one needed to help folks out one with a faq and error correction section in it? no more no less
