Fantastic plugin
By , for WP 4.5.3

Thanks for this, working well for me so far.

good, missing 1 thing
By , for WP 4.4.2

It's nice plugin for Groups to do Mass Messaging and liked the idea a lot, but i can't deploy it on my site, as the danger of miss usage by every user. Missing the following important feature.

To prevent miss usage, i need to have something like:

Mass Messaging > Minimum Access: Contributor > then Mass Messaging can only be send by the creator of the Group ADMINISTRATORS and he can assign again role to MOD/ADMIN for using Mass Messaging.

Mass Messaging > Minimum Access: Author (or higher_ > overrides and can use Mass Messaging in every group.

If i don't have this approach, then every CONTRIBUTOR could use the Mass Messaging function in every group!! There should be a function that only the Creator of a group Creators can use the Mass Messaging system.

Does not work after years of being available
By , for WP 4.4.1

This plugin is not good. It has been out forever, and it still does not work even after a recent update. It still needs a TON of work. I hope that it gets updated to actually work or someone takes it over and fixes it, because it has potential and is something I really need!

It is not clear when it works or does not work. Mass sending to all users doesn't work. Replying from those messages does not work. May as well take this off the market until it is fixed because it is worthless.

I had to contact my host because this thing started mass emailing my users and I could not stop it. By the time I contacted my host, ALL 400+ of my members had received over 30 emails...and I was getting SPAM complaints.

If this thing actually worked, I would pay money to use it. I like having a way to mass message all my users. So come on! Get this fixed!!!!!!

Simple and Effective
By , for WP 4.0

Works as advertised on my site. Nicely done!

Now... if only BuddyPress would allow HTML links in the messages...

Fails on site with 2000 members
By , for WP 3.9.2

This fails with an Internal Server Error when trying to send to ALL 2,000 users.
Some people got the message others didn't and there is no way of telling who did and who didn't without speaking with everyone.

Tried all options with single email as well..still fails.

Mandatory plugin on school intranet
By , for WP 3.4.2

I use this plugin on the school intranet I run.

The plugin allows teachers to message multiple parents in different classes in a convenient manner.

The school is parent-driven and parents use the intranet to set up BP groups for task forces. This plugin allows teachers and administration to message all parents who are part of a given task force without keeping track of whom is part of the task force.

Highly recommended for sites of this type.
