Fixed Config option 'enableMail' bypassed by AdminCP "Email users"?

    I was actually trying to figure out why the "Email Users" form was working properly in my development copy but not my own add-on script. I found out I left the enableMail option to false.

    Could someone confirm this?

    $config['enableMail'] = false;
    in library/config.php

    I don't know if this is an issue or purposedly designed this way.

    this, AFAIK. I cannot imagine why you would create an option to disable email if that is not what you wanted it to do :)

    Well, I voluntarily disabled emails by setting enableMail to false, but somehow emails still work in the Email Users form. This is the issue I'm talking about.

    Ahhh, I see now. Sounds like a bug to me.

    XenForo_Mail obeys that config option, but the controller for the mass mailer in the Admin CP has its own mail function that does not obey.

    I will move this to bugs. It might be intentional. The devs will decide.

    Mostly that option was designed to prevent automated emails (thread watch emails, etc), but it makes sense to make it consistent.
