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".

    Hi Miguel,

    What do you mean by being Admin or Manager?

    If you want to access other people mails, you'll need to use 'login as' functionality.

    If you want to send/receive mails from other people being Admin, it's not possible, all mails are tied to courses, therefore you need to be enrolled first. Maybe it's a feature to be add for next release.

    Cheers,
    Marc

    Marc,
    Excellent addition to Moodle! Does this plugin have any actions show up in Logs? We are looking for something that will show when mail sent was viewed by a student.

    Hello Marc,

    My interest it's just for the second possibility: the capability for the administrative staff (not teachers/not students) to contact with groups of enrolled users at any course by this way.

    Thanks and greetings.

    Hi Randy,

    No, Mail does not have any logs.

    I've been thinking adding logs to Mail but some actions are not as easy to log as others, for example, as you said log when a student view a mail would be interesting but there's a problem. Mail allows users to mark all messages as read when someone send them a mail, because notifications contains full message.

    There are other problems like when users view a mail with references, then we have to log every mail as read or only the first mail on screen?

    I hope logs will be available in Mail sooner than later.

    Marc

    Hi Miguel,

    I'll look into it, but I cannot promise you anything.

    Hi

    Hi
    I need to configure the plugin that you can only send mail between users in the same role for example Student - Student
    Is this possible?

    Best Regards. Miguel Angel

    Hi Miguel Angel,

    Currently is not possible, you can only avoid a role to send mail between users in the same role.

    New feature to be add in next release.

    Thanks for your feedback,
    Marc

    Buenas tardes!
    Que significa la opción "Cron Habilitado" en la parte de configuración?
    Muchas gracias

    Hola Tony,

    La opción de cron se introdujo para permitir hacer cambios masivos en las tablas de la base de datos de Mail. Actualmente no tiene una utilidad, pero si en un futuro se hace un cambio importante en la estructura de tablas, se utilizará para que el usuario pueda ejecutar la actualización de una manera programada y no en el momento de actualitzar el plugin,

    Buenas tardes.
    Llevamos un tiempo usando Localmail en nuestro Moodle y estamos encantados. Es realmente útil.
    Solo un comentario: Cuando tienes un curso con muchos alumnos, no podemos escoger a todos los alumnos a la vez para enviar un mensaje. Aparece el texto "La búsqueda tiene demasiados resultados" y es imposible enviar el mensaje.

    Podemos modificar el límite de resultados de búsqueda a mostrar? Gracias por la ayuda y enhorabuena por el plugin.

    Hola Chema,

    Primero de todo te agradezco la buena valoración que le das a Mail, después de todo el trabajo que nos ha dado, es bueno saber que a mucha otra gente le ha servido.

    Referente al número de destinatarios que aparecen en el listado, se puede cambiar modificando la variable de configuración de Moodle 'maxusersperpage', esta variable determina el número de usuarios que se muestran en los listados de cursos, grupos, etc.

    Saludos

    Buenas,
    LLevo ya un buen tiempo usando LocalMail en uno de nuestros moodle, y les quiero decir que es excelente y de mucha ayuda, Gracias.
    Por otro lado estoy tratando de implementarle una nueva funcionalidad, de cuando el usuario esta viendo el mail, tenga dos botones para ver sus correos siguientes o anteriores, he estado intentando pero no me reconoce el nuevo botón para empezar a programarlo, podrías darme una idea de los pasos para agregarle esta nueva funcionalidad

    Hola Roberto,

    Para añadir un nuevo botón tendrás que incluirlo en la función toolbar en el fichero renderer.php, después para devolver el resultado deseado mírate la función fetch_index de la clase local_mail_message

    Saludos
