    I notice that the github repository has been archived. Is this plugin still maintained ?
    If not maybe you should contact david@moodle.org to put it in the adoption program : https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=260354

    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: //github.com/lsuits/lsu-block_quickmail

    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: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=398335

    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

    The following was suggested be Chien Wen-chang on Mon, Feb 17, 2020, 7:15 PM

    I was to verify that is does fix Quickmail in Moodle version 3.8.4+

    The error "There are no users you are capable of emailing." in Quickmail

    Simply Modify /blocks/quickmail/js/selection.js at line 53

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

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

    After you are done simply save and clear the server cache...then it works!

    I'm using Moodle 3.9.1+, I installed version v1.7.6 (2017122001) and it seemed to be working normally.

    But when a Tutor went to send messages to his students he was unable, he presented the following error: "There are no users to whom you can send emails."

    Would you by any chance have plans to continue updating this plugin?

    There is new version that is not on the Moodle.org site. You can download it from the Github site below. I have the V2.x and it works fine with 3.9.x. Below is the Github URL.
