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".

    Hola Juan Pablo,

    Que versión estás utilizando de Moodle? y de Mail?, el tema no debería afectar al funcionamiento de Mail.

    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.

    Juan Pablo, lo tienes disponible dentro del bloque de navegación. No necesitas añadir ningún bloque más.

    Yo también he estado un rato bueno buscándolo.

    Hi German,

    Please update Mail to 1.9 version, there was a problem in previous versions related to Navigation block and Boost theme.

    Hi Luis, I had the same problem. Go to Site administration > Users > Permissions > User policies and change "Maximum users per page" by the number of users you want to show (300 for example).

    Hola Mónica,

    Para saber que está pasando deberías pedir al administrador del servidor de tu Moodle que mire los logs de error del PHP, allí encontraréis la información necesaria para identificar el problema.

    Que no lleguen las notificaciones es normal, porque si os da error al enviar un correo, como no se éste no se envia y tampoco se envían las notificaciones.
