Webmail-like messaging
Moodle 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7

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".

    Is there any way to add all user in a group quickly? Now it is impossible to add all user as receipist when a group is with too many users.

    Hi Frankle Lee,

    No, there is no easy way to send a mail to all users in a huge group. Depend on your needs, maybe you'll have to increase maxusersperpage parameter in Moodle.

    My advice is to use a forum separated by groups, because is perfect to send a message to all members of group.

    Hello Georg,

    Sorry, it's not possible to clean the messages from the trash basket.
    We are adding new features to Mail and we'll consider to allow users to remove/hide messages from trash.

    Hello Daniel,

    Are you using latest Mail version? (1.8.2)

    If you have upgraded Moodle from a previous version like 2.8.X, then you have to upgrade Mail manually to 1.8.2 version

    Hola Marc,

    En primer lugar, gracias por desarrollar este plugin, es muy útil. Una pregunta, en la última versión, ¿es posible establecer los permisos para permitir ver los mensajes de los alumnos al tutor, gestor o similar?

    Hola Emilio,

    No, no es posible ver los mensajes de otros usuarios. La única manera es entrando como la persona que ha enviado o recibido los mensajes.

    I have a question. Is it posible to show only the teacher in the "to" field so that students can only sent an email to the teacher? Ans is it posible for a teacher or administrator to recieve all emails en one mailbox?

    Thank you for your response.

    Best Regards, Tom

    Are the Audio (MP3) and Video recording functions found within the WYSIWYG editor when composing a Mail message supposed to work with Mail? A user has identified that these functions are not working in my instance of Moodle, only within the Mail plugin. I was hoping you could let me know whether or not the Mail plugin was designed to support these functionalities, before I begin troubleshooting why it's not working.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi Tom,

    Using 'local/mail:mailsamerole' capability allows you to ban for example students send mails to other students. Maybe it's not what you ask, but it is a similar behavior.

    All mails are attached to a course, therefore it's not possible to receive all your emails in one mailbox, but if you click on Inbox menu then all mails from all your courses are shown.

    Hi Adam,

    Yes, Mail allow users to embed mp3 and video content. All this media content is shown thanks to filter_mediaplugin (if is enabled on your site).

    Check all media files are in link format to allow Moodle convert to an embed object.
