Discussion-based email list from WP users? (7 posts)

    I have what seems like a simple idea but is proving difficult to implement.

    I want an email list solution that automatically includes my users' email addresses (my site is closed to registration) and lets them post to it. The idea is that the site automatically acts as a LISTSERV for my user base, so they can all email uniquelist@mysite.com and it will automatically send a copy of their message to all other users.

    There are a number of email list options out there, and some have WP integration, but they are virtually all oriented towards subscriptions to a newsletter, or something that the admin only can post to. That's not at all what I need - I need an internal discussion system.

    Any suggestions at all? I'd even be willing to write a basic script myself if I knew anything about passing received emails to a script. Advice of any kind would be appreciated here, even if you (like me) are not sure how to accomplish the entire system.

    Hi,

    You can import email account from the database and set multiple Recipient addresses [MRA] from the hosting service provider and set the form to send the email and set TO address as your MRA account so all can receive the emails..

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    you can use MailMan:

    http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/index.html

    This can be integrated with WordPress. Check thus:

    Thanks both of you. I think I have some leads now, enough to research at any rate.

    Does anybody have more information about Automattic's 'integration' of MailMan with WordPress -- is it actually integrated? if so is it a hack? a plugin? etc

    i am familiar with the available wp newsletter plugins and plugins to hook into third-party newsletter services (mailchimp, constantcontact, etc), but have been unable to find any info about a) integrating mailman sub/unsub into wordpress - ideally into wp registraiton, and/or b) integrating any other mailman functions such as archives into wordpress/a wordpress theme

    From a look at the source html of the wp-pro page, i'm guessing this isn't an integration -- just a custom stylesheet
