    [Release vb2.0] Receive copy of e-mail you send via the BB

    Hi All,

    This is a very small hack, but one that my users requested:

    When you send a fellow member an e-mail via the BB mailform, you can select to also receive a copy of this e-mail to your address.

    The "installation" (for lack of better word) includes inserting a small piece of code into member.php, adding a small piece of HTML into one template, and creating a simple text-only new template.


    Installation Instructions:

    1. Open member.php. Almost completely at the end of the script, find:

    PHP Code:
    mail($destuserinfo[email],$subject,$sendmessage,"From: \"$bbuserinfo[username]\" <$bbuserinfo[email]>"); 
    BELOW it add:

    PHP Code:
      if ($getcopy) {
    $subject "FW: ".$subject;
    "\$sendmessage = \"".gettemplate("email_copymessage",1,0)."\";");
    mail($bbuserinfo[email],$subject,$sendmessage,"From: \"$bbtitle Mailer\" <$webmasteremail>");
    Save file and upload.

    2. Edit template mailform.

    Find, almost at the bottom:

    <input type="hidden" name="action" value="emailmessage">
    	<input type="hidden" name="userid" value="$userid">
    	<input type="submit" class="bginput" name="submit" value="Send email">
    	<input type="reset" class="bginput" name="reset" value="Clear Fields">
    And ABOVE it add:

    	<input type="checkbox" name="getcopy" value="1"> <smallfont><b>Check this box if you want to receive a copy of this message to your e-mail</b></smallfont>
    3. Create new template, called email_copymessage with the following content:

    This is a copy of an e-mail message you sent to $destuserinfo[username] at $bbtitle ( $bburl/index.php ):

    (change the text to whatever you like really)

    THAT'S IT!

    The mailform will now look like this:

    If you check this box, a copy of the e-mail you just sent will also be sent to you.
