    Using 1.4.0.

    Is there a way that I can allow a WordPress user that is a non-administrator to see/use the the Mailing List plugin?

    Thanks.

    No, this is currently not possible. What role would you want to authorise for this?

    I would like to be able to allow a WP "editor" to compose a message and send it. This would allow me to keep them out of the setup for the website.

    I'm also very interested in this.

    Perhaps instead of the plugin checking for "is_admin" it could check to see whether the user can "publish_pages" or something else from here http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities? This may help http://www.garyc40.com/2010/04/ultimate-guide-to-roles-and-capabilities/#check-capability.

    Then I could use the "Members" plugin to create a custom Role ("Almost_Admin", say), use Adminimize plugin to clean up the dashboard and make it user-friendly, and then this plugin would be accessible to whomever I want!

    Looking forward to the update with this slight change - I'll definitely make a donation to make it worth your time!

    We're planning to add this feature to the pro version.
    Don't worry, it'll still be still way cheaper than the monkey.
    Hope to get this sorted before the new year.

    PS: Usually a donation is to thank for work done, not in anticipation of work to accomplish. So never, ever, threaten to give a donation, like the famous shoe make said, JUST DO IT!

    Thanks for the reminder to not use donations as a threat! I've not yet received monies .. when I do I will make a donation regardless if I upgrade to Pro or not.

    Any particular reason why you wouldn't make this change to the plugin, though (just the Pro version)?

    It's on the to do list for the Pro version, we'll do it but it'll probably be after the new year ...
