    Hello everyone, I told you that I installed the new version of Quickmail (v2.5.0) (with Moodle 3.9) and I can't see the history of sent emails. Does anyone know how they can be recovered?

    From already thank you very much.
    Kind regards.

    Hello Veronica,
    You should have a task when you go to yourMoodleUrl/admin/tool/task/scheduledtasks.php named \block_quickmail\tasks\migrate_legacy_data_task
    You have to launch this task to get emails history (many times if i remember well , I think it can also be done using the CLI command )

    Hello, everyone. I am using v2.5.0 on Moodle 3.9.12+.
    If I save a message with an attachment uploaded as a draft, when I edit the draft again, the attachment is lost.
    Is there any way to deal with this?
    Thank you.

    I confirm.
    I have the same problem as you without knowing the cause.
    Contact the author perhaps?

    Hello Daniel.
    I feel bad to email them directly as it is a voluntary plugin.
    I will wait for them to find this post.

    Is it possible to run the migrate_legacy_data_task from the command line? If so, what would the command look like?
  • tor.., 19. jul.. 2022, 02.53
    You can run the "\block_quickmail\tasks\migrate_legacy_data_task" like any other scheduled task. Just make sure you configure the migration chunk size in "/admin/settings.php?section=blocksettingquickmail" to something meaningful to you.

    What does the roadmap look like upgrading QuickMail to 4.0+? Thanks for any info on this and all of your support!

    Hello: Has anyone tested if QuickMail 2.5.0 will run well on Moodle 4.0 or 4.1+? I'm wanting to upgrade to Moodle 4.1+ (from 3.11+). Hoping I can bring QuickMail forward with me.

    QuickMail 2.5.0 has been running on my Moodle 3.11+ installation with no issues.

    When selecting All in Course in the TO: field, Quickmail populates the distribution list with all participants in the course at that time, even if the message is scheduled for a later date. It would be ideal for the distribution list to be populated as of the date and time of the scheduled message, in order to pick up new participants and not send to former members. Please advise.

    Good suggestion Jim !

    Files (attachments/embedded) are almost completely broken in the latest versions. All embedded files are stripped out and all attachments are lost if saved as draft. I have a pull request that fixes both and also makes images show up in emails correctly. The development on this plugin seems to have stalled out.

    Hi ,
    are there currently efforts to adapt the plugin for Moodle 4.1 and PHP8?
