    Whenever I try to send an email it says "There are no users you are capable of emailing."

    I have to admit -- I don't understand the use of the word "Section" in this block. Why is it "section," when it's really referring to groups? Am I missing something?

    We have a request to add filtering by groupings. Have you considered this?

    Hello Mark,
    Not sure if Robert addressed this yet, but, I don't think we have any plans to implement that, as LSU probably wouldn't use it, but if you or anyone you know wants to work on it, we'd be happy to take a pull request on github. I might look into it soon, but I can't guarantee anything. Hopefully that answers your question.

    At LSU we use the term section, I am going to change that soon though for other schools when they download quickmail from here.

    That most likely means you have no users in your course where you have installed quickmail. However, it could also mean that those users aren't set up to receive messages.

    Works well in 2.8. However,where does the " from: email address" originate. I need to change mine because all of the emails sent have the same "from" email address.

    I can´t see where is the limitation of sending mails to determinated users.
    Is there a limit users i can send?

    Hello, I just wanted to ask if in the future the developers have a plan to put a filemanager in the admin level of sending emails for attachments.

    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.
