Send latest message to new users?

Postby Rob1 » 9:22am, Fri 01 Mar, 2013

We are setting up phpList to send a quarterly newsletter to customers.
Is it somehow possible to send the latest newsletter sent to the list to new
users that confirmed their subscription?
As it is now, the newsletter is sent to all users that have confirmed at the time
the message is sent to the list, but when users confirm after that or they join
and confirm after that, they never get the message and they potentially have to
wait 3 months before they get their first newsletter. That is not so good.

When I re-send an existing message to the list, will all users get a second copy, or
will it only be sent those users that did not already receive it?
(in that case I could re-send it once every while to keep new users informed)

The latter, that's how phpList works, you can send and re-send a message, and phpList will only send to subscribers who haven't received the original message.

If you re-create the same message, but as a NEW message, everyone on the list will receive a copy the next time you send it.

Latest phpList version is now 3.0.12 (3 February 2015) and requires a minimum of MySQL 5.0 and PHP 5.3.x

Thanks, then I will investigate the possibilities to re-send the message at some interval.
(at least when there is no such thing as a "send this message to new users", aside from
the confirmation messages that they receive when signing up and confirming)
