    Problem with this block on Moodle 2.2
    Lets say you have a mass email to send out to 50 people. The list of users that you wish to email will be 3 pages long. Type in your message and click "send email". The block will only send the emails to the users listed on page 1. Even if you scroll to page 3 and type the email and click "send email", the block will still only send out emails to the users listed in page 1.

    Change the following line 14 in admin_email/index.php from:

    $perpage = optional_param('perpage', 20, PARAM_INT);

    to something like:

    $perpage = optional_param('perpage', 100, PARAM_INT); and it will then list up to 100 users as per the filter and email all 100 users.
