Support » Plugins » Looking for a Listserv to work with WordPress users

  • i’ve been digging around and looking at various plugins, but the majority of WP mailing plugins are one way mailing lists. I would like to create a mailing group, like google groups/yahoo groups/wiggio or old-school listserv where I can set up 1 email address and any of my site’s users can email the whole list, but emails from outside/non-user addresses are rejected.

    is there a way to integrate listserv capabilities with my WordPress users list? i would like the user list to be linked so that i can use one of the membership plugins to track/manage who has paid their membership dues.

    mailpress and email users can be rigged (via modifying capabilities) to allow users to send emails, but i don’t want them to have to log in. my members aren’t tech savvy and i don’t want to try teaching them how to do things this way. but i also don’t want to have to manage 2 separate lists, ie: my google groups list and my WP membership.

    anybody have any ideas?

  • Any luck with this so far? I need a similar solution. Thanks.

    ashish, no i never found anything.

    i really liked: for their group services, but they don’t yet have an API. they say they’re working on it, but there’s no firm date on its release. does have an API, but I never dug into using it.

    sorry… but maybe you’ll come up with something awesome!

    I’m on a similar quest. I found an interesting thread that re-thinks how to approach this, here:


    Yes, looks interesting but lots of work. Also, it is hard to get it working on a shared host. I finally went ahead with DADA Mail, a non-Wordpress solution. Although not 100% foolproof but solved the listserv issue. It uses MySQL as the database and lets you create RSS feeds for the archives. So, good potential for integration with WordPress.

    i gave up on this. i’m trying to get my group to wiggio, but heck, they’re still using regular copy/paste email addresses!
