Notify Users is a MODx backend module for emailing manager and/ or web users.

It enables a user with the administrator’s rights to send within a single step a notification to all users (or a subset) who have been granted manager or web access to the site. Optionally, it is possible to include some extra recipients by inputting their emails manually + include the sender as a blind carbon copy recipient with a single click.

The Notify Users module sends emails via the PHPMailer module that is a part of MODx core. PHPMailer is a highly flexible tool and can be quickly adjusted to a proper emailing method supported by the hosting server (see full article on emailing from within MODx site).


You can install the Notify Users module by following several simple steps:

— download the package in a suitable archive format;

— unpack it to the root folder of your site preserving the archive’s internal directory structure or unpack the package locally and send the files over ftp;

— create a new module named „Notify Users” and fill in its code block by pasting the content of assets/modules/notify_users/notifyusers.txt;

— fill in „Module configuration” field („Configuration” tab) with:
&mail_format=Send Mail As;list;plain,html;plain

— (possibly re-login);

— enjoy emailing your manager/ web users from within the backend of your MODx site.

You can access module’s sources from my SVN repository either through browser or SVN client like TortoiseSVN (http and svn protocols are supported).

How to customize not to show all recipients in TO line
Comment #1 on: 2012-01-07, 14:21
Thank you very much for creating such convenient module! This is very close to what I really want. I would like to customize this module to make it possible to send a message without showing all recipients in TO line anyhow; for example, to send each message to each recipients (most preferable) or to set recipients in BCC line and sender in both FROM line and TO line.

Hi Tom,

there is no simple way to do this with current version of the module. I've created this thing in mid-2010, because MODx lacked the tool for emailing from within its manager. It is implemented as is.

In order to do described things (thus bringing this small mailer closer to a full-fledged email application), the module needs to be improved/extended. If you are ready to pay me for several hours of work (or reward me in some other way, for example, by including me in work on commercially-oriented project), I can consider implementation of new version.

Hi Aleksander,

Thank you for your reply. I don't think I feel like paying for it alone by myself. I think it's more reasonable and preferable that you sell the new module on your website. Besides I will provide the Japanese translation for the module and the website and recommend it on my website.

How does that sound?

It sounds fine, however, I have never intended to sell this thing :)

Version 0.5 includes behavior that you have suggested. Also I did some cosmetics; the most important is a stylesheet for frame displaying module so you can easily adjust many of its visual aspects without interference into core code.
