We do not have that on our list of things to do for quickmail. Always willing to look at pull requests though if you'd like to develop that or know someone who might. It hasn't been considered for our school because we decided that we'd never use attachments at the admin level anyway, since there would be so many recipients.

@James Foster,
The from email address is grabbed from the USER Object that is currently logged in and using quickmail. Currently there is no way to change that.

@André I'm not sure if I understand the problem you're having. There is not a defined limit in quickmail. Your server might have one though.

Hello @wael tarek , Can you tell me exactly what you were doing when you got that error?
• Wed, Mar 18, 2015, 3:01 AM
To Matthew and Robin, As far as I know it works fine in 2.8, please let me know if you find a bug. I have used it and tested it on 2.8, but only in a test environment and not in an actual live instance.

Hello, I am testing quickmail (version=2015122912) in my 2.8.3 environment. Everything works however the restore with the quickmail history fails with the following error. Please note, my moodle is using Oracle at the backend.

Debug info: ORA-01722: invalid number
SELECT * FROM m_029D826700013 WHERE backupid = :o_backupid AND itemname = :o_itemname AND itemid = :o_itemid
[array (
'o_backupid' => '7acf23bd032e1509b69f5a03fb2db73b',
'o_itemname' => 'user',
'o_itemid' => '',
)]

Any idea why and how to fix it?

Thanks,
Bei

@Bei Chapman, I do not know why, but will try to recreate it on my server. I have tested with 2.8 though and did not get an error like that. I use MySQL but there's no DB code in the restore files that isnt just DBA Moodle function calls. So it shouldn't matter. I'll look into it but it may be awhile, please let me know if you end up fixing it. If you can, it'd be helpful to know exactly which step in the restore process it fails on, perhaps even a screen shot, and also try it without the history option on and off, with the settings option on and off, and see which permutations throw the error.

Just noting that the download zip files have obviously been done on OSX and are stuffed full of __MACOSX directories which is a bit annoying. You might want to sort this (direct link to Github zip download maybe).

There is a 1.5.1 version without MacOSX dirs now. Thanks.
