Send mails from Plone to users and groups

Project description


MailServices allows to send emails to portal’s users and groups.


  • This very lightweight plone product let’s you mailing people from your portal, by groups or by selecting users.

  • It equally allows you to mail people that are’nt members of the portals, but WITHOUT ANY VERIFICATION! (for the moment).

  • Otherwise, it adds a document action, which works in the same way that classic plone ‘send_to’ action, but let’s you choosing your target by scanning the portal groups/users.

  • It also adds an user action, which works in the same way as described above.

  • Manager can choose in ControlPanel : - default subject, - default body, - if he will receive a copy of each mail sent, - if users are able to send mails to non-portal’s users.

  • Mails are sent from user email address. For security purposes, this can’t be modified.


Permission is set for ‘Manager and ‘Member’


Bcc support is currently implemented in a branche. However, due to MailHost behaviour, all recipients can see the bcc list. We are working on this issue, feel free to send your proposals in case you have some.
