Set users to HTML or TEXT by list

Postby al3 » 3:46pm, Sat 03 Sep, 2011

It would be nice to have an option to "tag" ALL (or some?) users in a list AND set them to HTML or TEXT... similar to how you can now "move" or "copy" or "delete" them.

If you know enough SQL you can do this in phpMyAdmin, but it's a PITA and you could easily mess up if you are not sure what you are doing.

I think that you can achieve this by exporting users from your list specifying only the email address and the "Send this user HTML emails" field. Then edit the resultant text file to change specific users to receive html or to receive text, and import the file.
On the import there is a check-box to update existing records. Only the html attribute will be updated, others will be left alone.

Yes, this works well. You have to use the "first" import option (different attributes) which I had never used before.

Thank you.
