I don't see a way to edit and send a previous email campaign. Is there a way to do this? I'm using phplist version 3.0.6

No, phpList does not do this as once a subscriber has been sent a campaign, you cannot send it again to them.

You can however send it to new subscribers if you so wish.

A very useful tool however which may make life a lot easier for you is the Campaign Plug In.

Thanks for your help, and your suggestion to install the Campaign Plugin. I'll try it. :D

I'll openh my own thread if it is better, but this is closely related.

I have students that get added to a List for updates. I send a "Thank You" message as a campaign to them. Next month there is another bunch of students (maybe 30) to be added to the list, and I want to send the same Thank You to them - but NOT to the ones who have already received it.

The same would apply in future updates - sending to those on the list currently, and potentially again to those who get added later so they get the info - but NOT to those who have already received.

Will the Campaign Manager plugin take care of this?

phpList will do this without the Campaign Manager Plugin, phpList by default will not normally send a campaign to a subscriber who has already received it. However, you can resend a campaign a month (your example) later and only the new subscribers will receive it.

The campaign Manager plugin would allow you to resend the original message to all subscribers, even those who have already received it.
