How to send an email to all (or some) members of my forum?

How can I send an email to all members of my forum? I neither found a function for that nor a plugin. Furthermore, it would be nice to select specific users to which an email is to be send. How is that possible?

best regards
Sid

    You can get a list of your user's emails from the user management screen. You could also look into the Mail Chimp plugin.

    If you just want to mass mail messages, you might have to make/commission a plugin to do that.

    Something like a newsletter?

    @hgtonight: yes, you are right. I intend to send some infos to my community once in a while - something like a newsletter. But registering at MailChimp is not what I want. I can't imagine that no one had this requirement until now, to send an email to all forum members?

    @SidKennedy Other people had such requirement, but I'm not aware of such a plugin having been implemented.

    There is also a discussion on the support forum for the hosted version, about it and it seems that they are not offering that possibility, either.

    Probably, a mailing tool might be your best bet.

    Well ok. Let's see if I'll have time to implement such a plugin by myself. Until then, I will sent a simple email to all my members ;)

    Using my MailChimp plugin will solve your problem. MC has a Forever Free plan: up to 2,000 subscribers and 12,000 emails per month.

    After the plugin was installed, click on "Bulk import" and all your members will be added in the selected (from plugin settings) MC list. Create a message and send it to the entire list. I don't think there is an easier way...

    If you want you can select only some users from the list (even one).

    I'm working (for a client) on MailChimp groups <-> Vanilla groups sync... so mailing a specific group should be much easier.
