Final update, it worked on the production server!! so now our forum is working properly sending emails the Linux way on a Windows Server OS, quite nice I would say, just as a side note our forum is actually really small in number of users, as it is an internal forum, so I can't assure this setup will work out to other forum's expectations or needs, also I would like to add that this shouldn't be the way to do it on Windows as it is kind of a weird way to handle it so in later versions it would be nice to see it reworked or polished for Windows environments (especially because it looks like the program used to simulate sendmail on Windows is no longer receiving maintenance).
Is there a way to send an email to all members?
I am looking for a way to occasionally send a nicely formatted email to all members. I'd like to use it for sending important announcements or a monthly curated newsletters of some sort. I was thinking it would be really awesome if there was a way to send the content of a post via email to everyone on the forum. Is that currently possible? If not, can this be done via a plugin?
If you have mailgun plugin and the mailgun account you can download a .csv file of all your members.
Use that with mailgun and send a mass email through them.
Something similar to ^ would work well.
@Scuzz cool! I did not know. That does not look too bad.
Still, it would be nice if this function was built right into nodebb. So an admin could "compose" a message or just send out the OP on a topic as an email.
Just export your contacts to csv, then use that.
Good! And else "mandrill-blast-online": https://github.com/akhoury/akhoury.github.io/tree/master/pages/mandrill-blast
