I have tried installing Mail2List; however, when I click process, I just get a blank page as shown in the image. Any suggestions?

Please remember that as of 2012, this plug-in is no longer being supported by the original author, also that is not an official plug-in rather one designed and written by a user who no longer is able to offer support.

Note also, the last reported version of phpList that this worked with was 2.10.10 or maybe 2.10.13.

Coding has changed since that version as we are currently on 2.10.19 or 2.11.10.

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

Hi, I've installed the latest version of Mail2List and it's showing up in the Config --> Plugins page (after editing config.php), however there's no link to configure the plugin, even after creating a mailing list. Any ideas? I've attached a screenshot:

Thanks. :)

Check your actual plugin directory, make sure both the php file and folder are there for mail2list

Thanks for the speedy reply, mailtolist.php and the mailtolist folder are both there with 0755 permissions. :?

I would expect, for server security mailtolist.php to be 644 permission wise.

OK thanks for that, fixed the permissions up. I've tried with a bunch of other plugins and I'm not getting any configuration links in the plugins page at all. Can't find any screenshots so I'm not actually sure what it's meant to look like, other than a few posts indicating the name of each plugin should be a link.

Sorry, just re-read this post, configure your Mail2List on the configuration page, not the plugin page. It'll be somewhere WAY down the bottom of the page.

Not finding any Mail-to-list config options on the Settings page. There are options there for FCKeditor and CKeditor but no other plugins. :/

Check that you have both the file and the directory mailtolist in your plugin folder. Also, is mailtolist still enabled?

Same problem here, mail2list installed, appears enabled in plugin section, but the configuration doesn't show up ad Settings page

Version: v3.0.5
mail2list source: http://www.sawey.be/downloads/mailtolist.zip (according to http://docs.phplist.com/MailToList.html)

You do realise that Sawey's mail2list only worked with version 2 of phpList?

There is an updated version of the Mail2List plugin authored by Alberto Scotto available on Github at https://github.com/alb-i986/phplist-plugin-mailtolist .

I have installed this plugin by hand into the latest version of Phplist (v3.05). (The Phplist plugin installer does not install the subfolder the plugin needs.) I have not yet tried actually mailing a message to a list, but after installation, the plugin's pages do appear. Selecting "Mail2list plugin" at the bottom of the main config menu leads to the Main page for the plugin.

On the main page there are two buttons. One leads to a configuration page for the plugin, where you can enter data for the email account where messages to the list are to be sent.

The second button initiates processing of new mails sent to the list.

This much seems to work fine, although I have not yet tried actually processing new mails.

I have finally checked out how well Albert Scotto's update of the Mail2list plugin works in Phplist v3.05.

You can configure the plugin inside Phplist, and it does indeed forward messages to a list, but what is forwarded is not correct. The plugin seems to be confused by HTML. I tried the plugin with a test message consisting a short line of text. I did not change the default footer that Phplist adds to each message.

What went out to my text list was a message without my line of text. And the footer came through with all the html tags in the footer represented as text in the message.

I had also tried to send an HTML message earlier. Much of that message was lost too with the HTML tags in the footer represented as text in the message.

I am afraid that in its present form, this plugin is completely unusable in the latest version of Phplist.

For those that are attempting the latest code to work with 3.0.6 and can't get a config screen, here is the fix.

Latest code I could find:
https://github.com/alb-i986/phplist-plugin-mailtolist

Modify mailtolist.php
Code: Select all

<?php
/**
 * EMAIL TO PHPLIST
 * This is a plugin for phplist
 * Created by SaWey (C) 2007
 *
 *
 * The only thing you have to do is
 * Put the files in your plugin directory
 * And change the file path and URL to the
 * attachments dir in get_email.class.php
 * All other config happens in the webgui
 */

class mailtolist extends phplistPlugin {
    const VERSION_FILE = 'version.txt';

    public $name = 'Mail to List';
    public $description = '';
    public $authors = '';
    public $topMenuLinks = array(
        'main' => array('category' => 'config'),
    );
    public $pageTitles = array(
        'main' => 'Mail2List',
    );

    public function __construct()
    {
        $this->coderoot = dirname(__FILE__) . '/mailtolist/';
        $this->version = (is_file($f = $this->coderoot . self::VERSION_FILE))
            ? file_get_contents($f)
            : '';
        parent::__construct();
    }

}
?>


You can create a version.txt file in the mailtolist directory and put a date in if you wish. I've also done some modifications to allow the configuration of the "From" address and name for a list.

This still won't help much because its still doesn't seem to be picking up the content (Plain or HTML). Anyone had gotten anywhere with this problem?
