  • Question about emails


    There is a new law in Israel that sites cannot send emails to their users with commercial content unless the user accepted to receive such mails before hand.

    Commercial content can mean that even if the email itself doesn't contain ads, but contains a link to the forum, and in the forum there are ads or links to other sites that sell merchandise, then the email is considrerd commercial too.

    What I wanted to know is, when a user registers to the forum, there is a checkbox "Receive email from admins" (or sth like that). if the user doesn't check this box, will he not be getting emails at all? if he will still be getting emails even if the box isn't checked that please tell me so could build a hook in vbamil.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, he will receive other e-mails from the system. For example, the e-mail confirmation, or any subscription notifications he signs up for. There are quite a few other instances, too.

      Subscriptions are ok, because they sign up for it.
      Will he recieve any emails without his consent?
      For exmaple emails like a another users wants to add him as a contact?

        Receiving emails for the following are all opt in/out emails via the UserCP and can be set to be off by default via the AdminCP:

        Freind Request Notifications
        PM Notifications
        Thread Subscriptions
        User to User Email
        Forum Subscriptions

        The following emails can be disabled by the Admin:

        User to User Emails
        Reported Item Emails (sent to moderators and administrators)
        Birthday Emails
        New User Welcome Email

        The following emails will always be sent if email verification of accounts is enabled:

        Email verification during registration
        Email verification for lost password requests

        The following emails will always be sent:

        Infraction/warning emails (if user has PMs disabled)
        Too many failed login attempts
        Full/nearly full PM box
        Paid subscription emails

        There are other emails that are sent too, but those are the main ones.
