Select Moodle version:

General plugins (Local): Mail

Webmail-like messaging
Maintained by: Picture of Albert Gasset Albert Gasset, Picture of Marc Català Marc Català, Picture of Manuel Cagigas Manuel Cagigas

This plugin allows users to send messages to each other, using an interface and features similar to webmail clients. Messages are tied to courses, users can only contact other participants in courses they are enrolled. Reading/sending of messages is done through a new item in the navigation block called "My Mail".

    Albert - Many thanks for adding this plugin. I have reviewed it and noticed that a site admin does not see the My Mail option in navigation probably because they are not enrolled in the course. I did not test thoroughly but used "login as" to become another user and attempted to send a message to another user and received the following error:


    Debug info:
    Error code: local_mail
    $a contents:
    Stack trace:
    line 476 of /lib/setuplib.php: moodle_exception thrown
    line 32 of /local/mail/compose.php: call to print_error()

    I was not able to attach a file because I received:

    No permission to access this repository.

    These errors may be because I was not logged in directly as the user but instead via 'login as'.

    When you have the opportunity, a documentation url and a couple screenshots would be helpful. I will go ahead and approve the plugin and let you take care of patching those things up later. Peace - Anthony

    Anthony: Thank you for the feedback.

    Only users enrolled in a course can send/receive messages, so we decided to hide "My mail" in this case. We will think of a less confusing alternative.

    The new version we have just released fixes some bugs, but the repository error when using "login as" seems more general:

    Do you think that it could be possible to include "user roles" in the recipient list? For example, we have a "Parent" user role associated to student. Parent are not enrolled in the course, but they are somehow associated. I can help develop such feature.

    David Bvbs:

    Los mensajes de la papelera no se pueden eliminar.
    Desde la "Bandeja de entrada" no se puede saber que mensajes has respondido, se ha de consultar desde "Enviados".

    Amilcar Perez,

    Para que aparezca en español debe estar seleccionado en el perfil de usuario el idioma Español - Internacional (es) y que la traducción se encuentre dentro de la carpeta lang/es
