    Is there a way to customize the email opener text when sending to mentors: "You are receiving this message because you are assigned as Mentor of the intended recipient. The following is a copy of what was sent to the recipient."

    After upgrading Moodle to version 3.6 or 3.7, Quickmail V1 stopped working.

    I get the error message "There are no users you are capable of emailing."

    I modified /blocks/quickmail/js/selection.js line 53

    return $("#mform1").submit(function() {

    Changed "#mform1" to ".mform", like

    return $(".mform").submit(function() {

    Now Quickmail V1 Can support Moodle 3.6 and 3.7

    Do you have plans to release v2 of the plugin for >= Moodle v3.7 on the Moodle plugins repository?

    Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$username in /var/web/wwwroot/ws/lib/moodlelib.php

    If anyone is seeing this warning....Please add this line of code
    $fakeuser->username = $additional_email;

    on line 347 after
    $fakeuser->email = $additional_email;

    Please note this is for the Quickmail V1 version plugin

    The CLAMP version was forked a while back before the LSU Quickmail had created new features like being able to send course and user data using data injection in the body of the message. It would likely be best to look to see if another party could pickup the LSU version: //

    I translated the new plugin (Git) into French.
    I transfer the local_fr file to who?

    I'm using Moodle 3.7 -- When I send a QuickMail message from the Front Page, I see a textbox next to categories and I'm not sure what it's for. Would appreciate some insight. Image here:

    Hi there, I`m using lsuits/lsu-block_quickmail from github, which works great with moodle 3.8. Unfortunatly the git was archieved so I try my question here. Do you know how I can add customized "Supported user data fields" like [:password:] or so? Thanks
