  • Text of post emailed to certain users

    Here's my no-experience-with-bulletin-boards newbie problem: I'm with an organization that currently uses yahoo groups. Some/most members want to switch to a bulletin board, but a few have such slow internet connections that they really need to use just email. Can those email-exclusive users get emails (full text) of all new posts throughout the board (all threads, everything), so that for them, it's not much different than yahoo groups? I think from reading other posts that it wouldn't be possible to have them respond back to the board, but I guess they could just respond to the old yahoo group, which everyone will still have.

    Thanks for your time!

    The available vB email options are to receive:

    - an email on the next new post in a thread the member has subscribed to, and no more email until the members logs in.
    - a daily digest of new posts in a forum they have subscribed to
    - a weekly digest of new posts in the forum

    There is no function to post via mail. vB is designed to work as an online community and not a mail group.

      just a clarification for the inexperienced.

      Thanks so much for your fast response. So individual emails aren't going to work the way we need, but a daily digest sounds feasible. Can the adminstrator him or herself just set things up to have some people subscribed to all the forums so that they can get a daily digest of everything posted all over the whole board?
      Thanks, much appreciated

      - a daily digest of new posts in a forum they have subscribed to
      - a weekly digest of new posts in the forum

        No, there is no function to do that. Your members will need to subscribe to the daily digest for each forum.
