Mass Mail doesn't worked when I tried to send diwali greetings to my community members. I was logged in as admin and found this bug as I also have account as a normal user.

Do you use smtp for your mail or the inbuilt php?

Sorry Melvin, would you post a link of this discussion?

Guys, mass mailing can't work by two reasons only:

- cronjob was't setup

- some problems with your mail server: ip was blocked by some email servers.

Please, would you check it and response here with results.

Thank you!

Please, look at our installation manual carefully. You forgot to point [path_to_php] before path to cron file

beside the cron job do not enable the mailer setting leave the box uncheck them masmailer will work by default on your provider php setting.

I see that you are using windows as server. what is the version of windows? and also anything under program files windows will protect big time. try this "C:\Program Files (x86)\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs\paladino\ow_cron\run.php"

no php command
danny Jan 25 '11

By browsing the languages in there, you can search for a word string and it should take you to an area where that is present. Then you should be ablt to add your own text...

Languages can be got at through the admin panel.
